"The virtual tour worked really well. We could easily see all the exhibits and it was great to be able to look at the artefacts without leaving the classroom. Talking to the Holocaust experts was also amazing because I was able to ask lots of questions."

"“I am so appreciative of the opportunity and privilege to engage virtually with the Melbourne Holocaust Museum. I have been to an excursion at the centre before and am so impressed with how you have been able to adapt to a virtual format whilst still retaining the key features of what an excursion would normally entail. Thank you so much for the incredibly important work that you do.” "
