Our Holocaust Education Program enhances students’ understanding of the Holocaust and its significance in today’s world. All programs are carefully linked to the Australian curriculum and underpinned by ‘safely in safely out’ educational philosophy.

Our programs include introductory and bespoke seminars.

Understanding the Holocaust introduces students to historical events and significant factors that can assist us in understanding how this devastating event unfolded.  The session is structured to help students understand the importance of studying the Holocaust.

The session examines:

  • How Europe changed after World War I and the Jewish world that was
  • Nazi ideology and how it aimed to destroy European Jewry
  • Key historical events that led to the establishment of extermination camps and mass murder of Jews and other victims

The program includes:

  • Interactive seminar with our Education Coordinator
  • First-hand testimony from a Holocaust survivor
  • Guided tour of the Museum

Through prior discussion with our Education Coordinator, teachers can request either a general introduction program to the Holocaust or focus on specialised topics. You will receive a targeted bespoke education workshop drawing on the themes of AHMSEC’s permanent Holocaust exhibition artefacts and survivor stories.
