At the MHM, we’re here to support local Holocaust survivors with their needs. Whether it’s to connect with a support group, access welfare assistance or something else – we’re ready to help in all sorts of ways.

Supporting Melbourne survivors

The MHM exists to advocate for Holocaust survivors.  

We’re here to preserve and amplify their voices. To share their life experiences. And, importantly, to support their needs.  

If you’re a Melbourne-based Holocaust survivor who needs welfare support, please contact:

We can also connect you to the organisations below for additional services and assistance: 

Jewish Care

Jewish Care is committed to supporting first-generation Holocaust survivors in the community.

Through its Holocaust Survivor Support program, Jewish Care provides eligible Holocaust survivors with a range of support and services tailored to their specific needs.

Claims Conference

The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) is a non-profit organisation that secures material compensation for Holocaust survivors around the world.

With offices in New York, Israel and Germany, the Claims Conference began advocating for Holocaust survivors in 1951.

World Jewish Restitution Organisation (WJRO)

The World Jewish Restitution Organisation represents world Jewry in pursuing claims for the recovery of Jewish properties in Europe (outside of Germany and Austria).

Where restitution is not possible, WJRO works to secure compensation for Holocaust survivors.

World Federation of Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust and Descendants (WFJCSHD)

The WFJCSHD exists to represent the interests of the child survivor community. It allows child survivors to support each other, keep alive the memory of the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, and pass their legacy to future generations.

The WFJCSHD holds a conference every year to build connections between survivors and descendants from all over the world.
