Registered, persecuted, annihilated: The Sick and Disabled under National Socialism

Between 1939 and 1945 the Nazis murdered 200,000 mentally ill or disabled people.  Deemed to be “life unworthy of life” these people were killed with the knowledge, approval and cooperation of bureaucrats, doctors, nurses, lawyers, health officials, administrators and families of the victims.  The moral issues raised in this exhibition remain profoundly disturbing and relevant to the treatment of those who are deemed to be “the other”.

Erev Rosh Hashana: MUSEUM CLOSED

Monday 10 September
Rosh Hashana Day 1: MUSEUM CLOSED

We have extended our museum opening hours on Fridays, bringing us in line with other Jewish institutions and allowing the public to experience the museum at their leisure with an extra hour, now closing at 3.00pm.

After reviewing our schools education program, we have updated our Friday program times, providing schools with greater flexibility.

We are thrilled to announce Alice Zaslavsky will be joining us for a chat about ‘how food can help you connect and heal’ after our screening of Oma and Bella.

Before making her on-screen debut on Masterchef Australia in 2012, Alice was the youngest Head of Department at an elite private school. She has since made the living-room her classroom, hosting kids' food and lifestyle programs as well as co-hosting a regular "Veg Seg" on ABC Radio Drive. Her children’s book Alice’s Food A-Z was also the first cookbook to be given a Notable gong by the Children’s Book Council of Australia.

Place 24 June in your diary, and ensure you do not miss this special event.
