A sacred memory, never to be forgotten
On Sunday 14 June, Her Excellency Quentin Bryce AC, Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia officially opened the Sydney Jewish Museum newly refurbished ground floor and launched the Visual History Archive of Holocaust testimonies recorded by almost 2,500 of the Survivors who settled in Australia.
Her Excellency was taken on a tour of the Museum and was visibly moved by the experience. Her Excellency declared, “The images and objects you house here, though stilled and softened by time, are profound in their impact. Each one delivers a story, a past, a warning. Each one holds a scared memory, never to be forgotten.”
John Landerer CBE AM expressed, “We are honoured that Her Excellency has been able to join us to celebrate these auspicious milestones in the history of the Sydney Jewish Museum.” He further explained “Education is the central focus and ultimate aim of all exhibitions and programs at the Sydney Jewish Museum. ... In 2008 approximately 13,500 school students visited the Sydney Jewish Museum and we are aiming to end 2009 closer to 15,000.”
