UPDATE - Holocaust Survivor Iby Knill has now been confirmed to come and meet us on the day. (To read her story in advance click HERE
The National Holocaust Centre and Museum is so much more than a museum. It’s a vibrant memorial, a place of testimony and a Centre of learning for communities of all faiths, and none. It's the only place of its kind in the UK and somewhere that we believe everyone should visit.
It is set in peaceful countryside and surrounded by a beautifully landscaped Memorial Garden. The Museum is accredited by the Arts Council, and features a permanent exhibition including survivor’s testimony and artefacts. It provides a very human and personal perspective on pre-war Jewish life in Europe, the rise of National Socialism, the Holocaust survival and post-war justice.
But what makes a visit particularly unique is the opportunity to meet a survivor of the Holocaust and to hear their story.
Our Visit: We are advised to allow around 4 hours for our visit and have aranged a light lunch for Spice during this time. We have requested a guide and also to meet a holocaust survivor during our time here, although these cannot be 100% guaranteed as they are provided by volunteers.
