The Adelaide Holocaust Museum and Steiner Education Centre (AHMSEC) will provide an in house education programme for secondary students (Years 10 -12) and tertiary students across the Adelaide metropolitan area, enhancing their understanding of Holocaust history as they study it as part of the national curriculum.

The education programme draws on lessons from the Holocaust with a focus on Human Rights and has been developed to teach about the consequences of prejudice, racism, discrimination and anti-semitism, and to support students’ understanding of the consequences of apathy and silence; of being a bystander. The programme is generally between 2 to 3 hours long.

Our current educators, who are Holocaust survivors themselves will either conduct these programmes at the centre, or in certain circumstances at your school. The centre can accommodate up to 70 learners at one time, and will be open Mondays to Thursdays for school programmes.

Please watch our website for further information as to the official opening date of the museum and the commencement date for our new in house student programme. Until the museum opens Andrew Steiner will continue to conduct a Holocaust outreach education programme for schools and tertiary institutions. All enquiries for student visits to: andrew.steiner@bigpond.com

We do not make a specific charge for student programmes, but respectfully ask for donations to help support the education programme.
