The Jewish Holocaust Museum and Research Center (JHC) was founded in 1984 by holocaust survivors in Melbourne . The mission of this institution is to remember the six million Jews murdered between 1933 and 1945 by the National Socialists .
The center was founded without any nameable support from the Australian state or other sponsors, so its survival is funded by Holocaust survivors, their families and other volunteers. Thanks to the support of these people the JHC has become the most important research center in this area of Australia .
The goal of this museum is the fight against racism and the promotion of social tolerance in society . One of the most important jobs the center does is to promote knowledge about the Holocaust, especially the new Generations. Around 16 000 rstudents visit this museum every year.
The museum offers apart from driving with students, who carry holocaust survivors out, also programs for adult education, teacher training and public lectures. In association with other institutions dealing with the same subject, the museum plays an important role with the maintenance of holocaust survivors.
