The JHC is a not-for-profit volunteer-based community organisation, entry is free and revenue is derived predominantly from donations. Today the JHC has grown from its humble beginnings in 1984 to become an active and internationally recognised institution. Our core objective (activity), using Holocaust education as a tool, is to safeguard human rights and liberties by fostering respect and understanding in a culturally diverse community. This is achieved through our museum display as well as our powerful education program which is available to all schools and other members of the community. 21,000+ secondary students from over 300 schools visit the JHC annually. Students have the opportunity to interact with survivors - eyewitnesses to the events. This experience enables students to learn in a unique environment and allows them to connect to the historical facts in a deeper, more meaningful way.
