NATIONAL HOLOCAUST CENTRE

The National Holocaust Centre is dedicated to providing an understanding of discrimination and prejudice and is the only museum of its kind in the UK. It was founded by the Smith family, in their home, following a visit in 1991 to Yad Vashem, Israel's national Holocaust museum. There are both temporary and permanent exhibitions - 'The Journey' is mainly aimed at children of primary school age and 'The Holocaust' tells the full story of European Jews, the rise of the Nazis, the 'final solution' and its aftermath. Many survivors tell their stories to the museum and its visitors. There is also an acre of memorial garden. As of 2017, something like 20,000 school children will visit the National Holocaust Centre.
