Survivor Paul Grinwald speaks with students during a virtual workshop.

"The set-up was seamless and highly organised. What a fantastic option for meeting a Holocaust survivor during these unusual times. I would highly recommend this experience to all schools. "

"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."

"“It was amazing to witness a survivor! I wish I could hear it all over again as it was the most inspiring thing I’ve ever witnessed!” "

- YR 11 English student

"“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.” "

Child Safety Commitment

We are committed to providing a child safe environment wherein children and young people are safe and feel safe. We are committed to the safety, participation and empowerment of all children and young people. We support and respect all children and young people, as we do all people.

Our commitment and practices are inspired by Holocaust victim Henryk Goldszmit. In 1928, under the pen-name Janusz Korczak he published the ‘Declaration of Children’s Rights’, which was drawn upon by the United Nations when the Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted in 1989.
