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.
Visit the centre to see our exhibitions or join us for one of our regular events including film screenings, lectures and other special public Programmes.
