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.
There are no temporary onsite exhibition at the moment.
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.
