Donate a memorial star

As part of the Everybody Had a Name project, the Melbourne Holocaust Museum is providing the public the opportunity to memorialise loved ones murdered during the Holocaust or honour a Holocaust survivor with a memorial-star plaque within our dedicated memorial room. These memorial stars are purposefully designed, by Jolson Architects, for those wishing to have a physical memorial for loved ones who were murdered in the Holocaust, or Holocaust survivors. 

The memorial room will accommodate over 5,000 Star-of-David shaped stars, made out of steel. The memorial stars will be created in two different tones of bronze — one representing those who were murdered and one representing Holocaust survivors — allowing visitors to the memorial room a greater connection to the experiences of each individual name.

The memorial star will be engraved with the name of the honoured individual. A further short dedication will be placed in our digital memorial at the entrance of the memorial room.

The memorial stars are available to the public by way of an $1800.00 donation to the Melbourne Holocaust Museum.  

To memorialise your loved ones, or honour a survivor with a memorial star, please fill out the donation form below. Please note, a separate form will need to be completed for each individual memorial star.
