Established in 1995 by a local Christian family, we are the only dedicated Holocaust Museum and Education Centre in the UK, and the only Holocaust Centre established by a non-Jewish organisation.

We can offer a range of curriculum links for your visit to us, including History, RE, PSHE and Citizenship, Literacy, Art, and Photography. Alternatively you can get in touch to arrange a bespoke session that meets your needs.
