Sydney Jewish Museum in Sydney
The Sydney Jewish Museum is a museum in Sydney, Australia, which documents the Holocaust and the history of the Jewish people in Australia.
History and description
The Sydney Jewish Museum identifies the 16 Jews who arrived on the First Fleet and describes life for those people and their families in the early days in the settlement of Australia. The main purpose of the museum, however, is to document and teach the history of the Holocaust. It does this over three floors of exhibitions, video presentations, newspaper clippings, pictures, narrations, letters and first hand accounts. There are also guided tours; one of the guides is Olga Horak, a Holocaust survivor.
Museum address: 148 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst NSW 2010 (corner of Burton St and Darlinghurst Rd).
