School Programs

Our Holocaust Education Programs

Our team of specialist educators present programs that are age specific and are underpinned by a ‘safely in safely out’ educational philosophy. 

The JHC offers three methods of delivering our program: 

  1. Virtual workshops using Zoom or another platform by negotiation 
  2. Outreach workshops at your School 
  3. On-site workshops at our Temporary Site 

Through prior discussion with our education team, teachers can request either a general introduction program to the Holocaust or focus on specialised topics. You will receive a targeted bespoke education workshop with an educator drawing on the JHC’s rich collection of artefact and testimony.  

All programs are carefully linked to the Victorian Curriculum strands, capabilities and achievement standards. The JHC is strongly committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children visiting our museum
