The National Holocaust Centre and Museum is the only centre dedicated to Holocaust remembrance and education in the UK. It plays a unique role as a memorial, a museum, a place of testimony and a centre of learning.
The Centre is home to:
- The Journey: the only permanent exhibition in Europe designed for teaching the Holocaust for primary-aged children. This tactile, text free exhibition allows students to be guided and immersed in 1938 and learn about the life of a German - Jewish boy.
- The Holocaust exhibition: this permanent exhibition reminds visitors that knowing what happened during the Holocaust is the first step from preventing it again. The exhibition gives a comprehensive overview of the Holocaust with a special focus on some of the communities lost during this time. Text, oral testimony, film archives and artefacts make up this learning space.
- The Memorial gardens: these beautifully landscaped gardens provide an important counterpoint to the museum housing hundreds of white roses with poignant dedications to those loved and lost during the Holocaust. There are many sculptures to view acting as a stimulus for creative thinking.
-Holocaust survivors: these remarkable individuals have been sharing their testimony to all schools that visit and will continue to do so whilst they are able. Many survivors have dedicated countless hours to ensuring their testimony is heard and the message will not be forgotten.
The Centre offers subject specific learning programmes, covering a range of curriculum subjects for primary and secondary schools, sixth form colleges and universities.
