Jewish Museum 30 Years
(Community Recognition Notices, 9 November 2022, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
On behalf of the Sydney Electorate, I congratulate the Sydney Jewish Museum on 30 successful years commemorating the six million Jewish people murdered during the Holocaust, keeping survivor memory alive and educating people from all walks of life about the dangers of hate. Since 1992, the museum has grown and evolved but it retains the commitment of those Holocaust survivors who did the work to establish this important reminder of Jewish history and the scourge of anti-Semitism. Exhibitions have been seen by up to 30,000 people annually and include the Children's Memorial, the Sanctum of Remembrance, Holocaust and Human Rights, Dressing Sydney, the contribution of Jewish people in the military, the Theresienstadt Ghetto and Jews from Islamic Lands. The Reverberations exhibition to open in December will be an immersive gallery where visitors will experience the lives of 43 Holocaust survivors. I commend everyone involved with the museum for maintaining this important mainstay of Jewish memory, culture and heritage in Sydney.
