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.

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.
'Zachor' Digital Memorial
The destruction of European Jewry by the Nazis left millions without gravesites. In this memorial, we remember these individuals, preserving the memory of those who were murdered during the Shoah.
We invite those who lost a family member or a friend to share with us their names and a photograph, and any available details so that the Memorial will continue to reflect the enormity of the loss. Contact our Curatorial Department on 02 9360 7999 or email [email protected] with any information you may have.
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.
