A museum dedicated to telling the stories of the Holocaust to create a fairer and more compassionate world

Learn about the Holocaust and South Australia’s connection to it.

Our permanent exhibition in The Anne Frank Gallery traces the history of the Holocaust. It encourages critical thinking around themes that remain relevant to issues in contemporary society such as positive citizenship, hate-speak, antisemitism, racism, and acts of terror.

Our goal is to enable all young people and the wider community to learn about this tragic period in world history and to learn about the importance of being an Upstander and promoting human rights for all of humanity.   

The museum’s education programs, exhibitions, and collections will motivate visitors to develop ethical values and active citizenship, encouraging action against antisemitism and any form of hate.

Discover the stories of South Australian Survivors

The Lefmann Gallery is being developed to tell the story of the Holocaust survivors who made South Australia home.  It initially featured a biographical display about six Holocaust survivors who migrated to Adelaide after World War 2.  This was funded by the History Trust of South Australia through their South Australian History Fund.

Please note that this display is currently not on public view for the duration of visiting temporary exhibition “Let Me Be Myself: the Life Story of Anne Frank”.  However, visitors can follow the personal experiences the six survivors in the permanent exhibition in the Anne Frank Gallery and you can also read about them here.
