The Cape Town Holocaust Centre conducts workshops for diverse adult groups that include the South African Police Services (SAPS), the Correctional Services, civil servants and various civil society groups and non-governmental organisations.

“This programme has taught me that it is my responsibility as a citizen of South Africa to
play a role in promoting and recognizing human dignity, showing integrity, and providing justice.”

“I think this programme will enable me to be a more complete human being. I have been encouraged to play an active and constructive role in the workplace.”

The workshops focus on the historical, moral and ethical dimensions of the Holocaust – in particular, the issues of prejudice, racism, intolerance, discrimination, and the abuse of power.
“The programme has given me a clear idea of my role and responsibility to the public as a SAPS member.  I am now more aware of the issues of prejudice and racism and will now be able to deliver a more professional service.”

During the workshop sessions, participants are encouraged to confront their own attitudes and behaviour.
They discuss how negative attitudes perpetuate prejudice, racism and discrimination, and create barriers between colleagues and/or members of the broader community.

Through the use of case studies of contemporary human rights abuses, the participants reflect on their responsibility and role in promoting a culture of human rights.

“The Centre provides an exceptional experience for our trainee teachers.  It is the highlight of the year and something we would be greatly impoverished without.  The Centre’s teacher training is a crucial contribution to the continuing transformation of education in our country.”
Assoc. Professor Rob Sieborger, School of Education, University of Cape Town, 2008
“I think this is a vital programme in terms of
changing attitudes, behaviour and situations in South Africa.”
