Bringing the facts, stories and meanings of the Holocaust to a younger generation.
Can there be anyone in the UK who doesn't know about the Nazi Holocaust? Surprisingly, yes. And beyond those who are simply unaware, there are others who are determined to either undermine its scale or to reject its existence in totality.
That's why we exist as a museum and as a centre of learning and education. At its simplest, The Holocaust was the attempt by the Nazi regime and its collaborators to murder all of European Jewry during the Second World War, along with other minorities they judged to be 'inferior'. This genocidal policy evolved during the war as the Nazi regime gained more territory, and as more Jewish people came under their control. It culminated in the so called “Final Solution”, the extermination of every living Jew. In the event, the Nazis were finally defeated. Yet not before two-thirds of the European Jewish population - a staggering six million Jewish men, women and children - were brutally and horrifically murdered on an industrial scale, never before seen by mankind.
