Back to virtual workshops page
Key information
Cost $5 per student Duration One school period Curriculum links Stage 6: Preliminary Modern History, Investigating Modern History – The Nature of Modern History: History and Memory, The Representation and Commemoration of the Past

Using the Sydney Jewish Museum’s architecture and exhibition as a case study, students will think critically about how the history of the Holocaust is given meaning and constructed through memorial spaces, source selection and artefact acquisition.

Particular consideration is placed on the Australian context of this museum as a memorial and a place for Holocaust survivors, descendants and the wider Australian community to consider the universal and particular aspects of this history.

The workshop will emphasise artefact analysis, shifting historiographies and Holocaust memory.
