icon_calendarELECTRONIC MEMORIAL

This installation is located on the top mezzanine level of the Holocaust. Faces and names of victims of the Holocaust, provided by relatives in Australia, rotate on a screen. It takes one hour for this memorial to display 240 names and faces. If all 6 million victims were to be recorded here, it would take 25,000 hours - nearly three years - to read all the names.

This memorial to the departed offers visitors the opportunity to pay their respects in a dignified and solemn environment. Many have chosen to honour the memory of loved ones lost by endowing plaques within the Sanctum.

A Memorial which commemorates the lives of one and a half million children who perished during the Holocaust. It focuses on children related to Australian survivors. Included in the memorial space is a sculpture of children’s shoes by Israeli sculptress Elza Pollak. Entitled "All That Remained", it is a loving tribute to those who left no trace.
