Overview

The Holocaust Centre of New Zealand, the country's national Holocaust education and remembrance centre, provides a moving experience which tells the stories of the survivors and victims of Nazi persecution who came to New Zealand. Read their stories, see DVDs of their testimony and learn the history of the Holocaust. We also hold commemorative events, film screenings and guest speakers. Bi-annually we raise funds to send 25 - 30 NZ educators to Yad Vashem in Israel for a seminar on Holocaust Education, enhancing the skills of teachers to teach on the Holocaust within their own schools. Our vision is that through testimony and experience we will inspire and empower individuals to stand against prejudice, discrimination and apathy. We are a not for profit charity existing primarily on grants and donations. Public entry is free but a donation would be much appreciated. Donations over $5 are valid for tax receipts. Open till 4pm on the last Sunday of every month.

Despite its exploration of one of the great tragedies of the 20th century, the Holocaust Centre is ultimately not a sad place because its real subject is human courage and resilience in the face of war and terror. What I like most about it is...More
