News from the JHC

Our new upgraded museum opened in 2010. Since then, thousands of students and others have had the opportunity to attend our educational programs in the refurbished Museum and to be inspired by our survivor-guides.

The Jewish Holocaust Centre’s new museum opened in March 2010. The upgrade has been designed to update the method of delivery of the information to appeal to the younger generation, who make up the bulk of visitors, while retaining the musuem’s special ingredient – the opportunity to interact with survivor guides.

With the assistance of a generous grant from the Jewish Holocaust Centre (JHC), a team of researchers from Deakin University is working on a comprehensive and up-todate study of the Centre. Historians Pam Maclean and Associate Professor Michele Langfield, and museum studies specialists, Associate Professor Andrea Witcomb and Dr Linda Young, form the core of the team, together with Research Fellows Dr Bill Anderson and Dr Donna-Lee Frieze.
