Xsq001_009The Sydney Jewish Museum collects and conserves original memorabilia related to the Holocaust, Judaica and Australian Jewish History, to make these available for research and display for generations to come. Items range from humble objects to beautiful works of art, each illustrating some facet of Jewish life or culture.

The Holocaust collection covers broad aspects ranging from pre-War life to Survivors’ migration to Australia and the later War Crime Trials.

Objects in the Australian Jewish History collection trace life in Australia from the arrival of the first convicts and free settlers to the present; there is a strong focus on servicemen and women.Xsq001_042

We rely on the generosity of our donors to extend and maintain these collections. All support is gratefully received and acknowledged. For further information please phone the curator on 9360 7999 or email
