Our permanent exhibition traces the history of the Holocaust.
We encourage critical thinking around themes that remain relevant to issues in contemporary society such as positive citizenship, hate-speak, antisemitism, racism, and acts of terror.
Due to the sensitive nature of the content in the Holocaust exhibition, we recommend that children under 13 years of age are accompanied by an adult at all times.

80 years on: Remembering the July 1942 deportations from France
The 16 and 17 July marks the 80 year anniversary of the Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup – the mass arrest of Jewish families by French Police under the order of the Nazi authorities in Paris. Thousands of Jewish residents including more than 4000 children were held at the Velodrome d’Hiver before being transported to extermination camps across Europe.
