PERMANENT EXHIBITION

Our permanent exhibition on the history of the Holocaust combines text, archival photographs and film footage, documents, 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.  Sections on resistance and the pain of survival also include testimony of local Holocaust survivors who share their personal stories.

We are also privileged to host various local and international temporary exhibitions at our Centre, which are also open to the public at no cost. For more information about the current exhibitions on show, please contact our Centre directly.

ANNE FRANK

The DHGC wanted an accessible role model for the thousands of young learners attending the Centre’s structured educational programme, many of whom had no personal connection to the Holocaust. This role model was found in Anne Frank, the young girl whose widely published diary records her personal experiences under the Nazis’ regime. After careful consultation with the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, the DHGC was granted permission to create a world first: a permanent exhibition of Anne’s attic room, complete with a movable bookcase concealing its entrance. This unique addition to the DHGC was officially opened on the anniversary of Kristallnacht by Jan Erik Dubbelman, International Director of Outreach for the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam.
