This program focuses on the nature and importance of human rights. Centred on the Museum’s permanent exhibition, The Holocaust and Human Rights, students will consider what Human Rights mean to them and why they are important.
Students will also hear from a child survivor of the Holocaust and will participate in a workshop focused on one or more of the following topics: the rights of Aboriginal Australians, the rights of the LGBTIQ+ community, the rights of people with disabilities, and the rights of refugees and asylum seekers.
Please let us know which topic/s you would like to include when you make your booking.
