Cape Town Holocaust Centre

Cape Town, Western Cape

The Cape Town Holocaust Centre features a newly renovated permanent exhibition on the history of the Holocaust, combining photographs, multimedia displays and recreated environments. The display also includes sections on the pseudo-science of ‘race’, the roots of antisemitism, and the institutionalised racism of apartheid.

A photographic display and 20-minute documentary tells the story of the survivors of the Holocaust who made their home in Cape Town. The Centre has been acclaimed by visitors as being ‘comparable with the finest Holocaust museums elsewhere’ and ‘a sobering reminder of the disastrous consequences of prejudice, racism and discrimination’.
