Memorials

The Sydney Jewish Museum serves to honour the memory of those who lost their lives in World War Two and the Holocaust.

Memorials offer 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.

If you would like to place a plaque in memory of a family member contact Rita Prager on 02 9360 7999.

Sanctum of Remembrance

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.

The Children's Memorial

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.

War Memorial Forecourt

The black marble forecourt of the NSW Jewish War Memorial serves as the entrance to the Sydney Jewish Museum. Its walls are inscribed with the names of nearly 3,000 Jewish service people, including 177 who gave their lives in the service of Australia in the two world wars.
