Who were the migrants who came to Australia? Why did they come? By meeting a holocaust survivor and hearing a personal experience of post war migration, this program encourages students to develop an empathetic understanding of the past. Our educator-led workshop will allow students to explore historical context that made people decide to leave their homes, and consider the challenges of adjusting to life in Australia. A dynamic tour of the exhibition also encourages students to consider the impact and influence of post-war immigration on the changing Australian landscape. Tracing the experience of Jewish Holocaust survivors from the liberation of Europe’s concentration camps, to Displaced Persons (DP) camps and migration to Australia, the exhibition provides a unique insight into the changes in Australian immigration policy in the post-war period and the shift into a multicultural Australia.

The program includes:

  • 1 hour Holocaust survivor talk
  • 1 hour guided, or semi-guided tour
  • 1 hour workshop with a Museum Educator
