Posted: Mar 19 2019
This month sees the official opening of The Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre’s new permanent exhibition.
“We are proud to announce that after many challenging and intensive years of fundraising, planning, researching, writing and designing, our Permanent Exhibition is now officially open to the public. This uniquely curated exhibition explores the history of the Holocaust and genocide in the 20th century through a thematic lens,” says the Centre.
Visitors to the new exhibition will be able to explore history and moral choices through the personal voices of various role players – victims, perpetrators, resisters, rescuers, bystanders and others. The exhibition urges visitors to reflect on lessons from these histories and apply them to their own lives.
The exhibition also includes collections of photos, testimonies, films, multi-media and unique artefacts from the Holocaust and the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, with generous contributions from survivors and families based in Johannesburg.
Entrance to the exhibition is free.
