Donate today. Change the future

The Melbourne Holocaust Museum is Australia’s largest institution solely dedicated to Holocaust education, research and remembrance. We exist to keep the voices of Holocaust survivors alive through education and memorialisation in order to combat antisemitism, racism and prejudice. 

Please support us to ensure we can continue to deliver engaging events and educational programs.  

The theme for the event is keeping memory alive, asking us to keep alive both the voices of Holocaust survivors, and the memories of those murdered. It is not just a call to remember the past, but to reflect on the different ways in which it can inform our actions into the future, inspiring us to combat antisemitism, racism and prejudice in all its forms.

Keeping memory alive also invites us to celebrate the histories and cultures of all communities, acknowledging and honouring our differences to foster a greater understanding and acceptance between peoples and promote human rights into the future.

This event will provide a chance to hear survivor testimony and the insights of community leaders, as well as a special performance from acclaimed Yiddish music group the Bashevis Singers.

This event is proudly supported by Gandel Foundation and the Victorian Government Multicultural Festivals & Events Program.
