An incredible collection witnessing the horrors of the war. In the heart of Elsternwick this is an historical MUST SEE. The guides and staff were extremely knowledgeable and related beautifully to students and adults alike.

If you remember nothing else from the tragedy of war, then remember and see what the Jewish people endured. It is truly horrific to see images.

A visit to the Jewish Holocaust Museum in Elsternwick is a poignant and humbling experience. The museum honours those who died and those that survived. It's aims "to combat anti-Semitism, racism and prejudice....and foster understanding between people" are as pertinent today as ever.

This was my second visit to this centre, on my second trip to Australia. I brought my partner to pay our respects. We spoke to a guide whose mother had been in Auschwitz and survived. Some informative exhibits and art work.

Visited the centre again to listen to talk given by Holocaust Survivor Paul Grinwald. Very enlightening & a privilege to be able to hear his first hand account of his life in France when the Germans occupied the country.
