Heritage College participating in In Touch with Memory education program.

Learning from the past to change the future. Starting with your class. Safely delivered by expert Holocaust educators, our school programs are all aligned with key curriculum frameworks.


Lessons from the past

At the MHM, we inspire the next generation to think critically. Practise empathy. And stand up against racism, discrimination and prejudice.  

Our school programs allow students to learn about the Holocaust through individual perspectives – and connect with Melbourne-based survivors through their testimonies and artefacts.  

All programs are age specific and guided by our ‘safely in, safely out, safely throughout’ educational philosophy. 

At the MHM, we are committed to providing a child-safe environment. We support and respect all children and young people. Their safety and wellbeing are our priority. Our practices are inspired by Holocaust victim Henryk Goldszmit, who published the ‘Declaration of Children’s Rights’ in 1928 under the pen name Janusz Korczak.
