Cape Town Holocaust Centre

Cape Town Holocaust Centre review Rate it

By showing us the faces of some of the six million Jews - as well as gypsies, homosexuals and others - who were murdered during the Holocaust, the Cape Town Holocaust Centre has succeeded in giving an identity to some of those killed. Exhibits consist of text, photos, film, artefacts and re-created environments. They follow the course of the holocaust from the early days of the Nazi Party and its espousal of antisemitism, to the Third Reich and the development of the concentration camp system, and the adoption of the Final Solution. The Centre also focuses on wider issues of racism, with sections on apartheid and the South African experience.
