What you need to bring
When visiting the Cape Town Holocaust & Genocide Centre, please bring your identification document (ID), drivers license or passport for security purposes.
By combining text, archival photographs and film footage, documents, multimedia displays and recreated environments, our permanent exhibition is structured in a way that allows visitors to access the history of the Holocaust and other genocides in their own time and without the need for a dedicated guide.
The pseudo-science of ‘race’, the roots of antisemitism and the institutionalised racism of Apartheid are depicted in the exhibition. The exhibition culminates with photographic display and a 20 minute documentary telling the story of the survivors of the Holocaust who made their homes in Cape Town.
