Darlinghurst, Sydney Jewish Museum

The Sydney Jewish Museum is located on the corner of Darlinghurst Road and Burton Street, in the inner city suburb of Darlinghurst. It is housed in the Maccabean Hall, which was built to commemorate Jewish men and women who served in World War One and to honour the memory of those who lost their lives. The museum is dedicated to documenting and teaching the history of the Holocaust so that these events will never be repeated. The building on the left is the NSW Jewish War Memorial Community Centre, with a stylised menorah on the façade.

  10. Wonderful, Jim. If we ever get to Sydney, I'll be sure to tell my husband about this. In fact, I think I'll e-mail him the link right now.

  13. Ann, in the 2006 census, the Jewish population of Australia was 88,834 which is not a lot in a population of almost 22 million. I did not know that fact about the NZ Prime Minister.

  17. Great that at least some steps are taken to prevent massacres do not happen. Even to read fictions based on holocast itself is painful...
