The Holocaust Centre of New Zealand inspires and empowers action against antisemitism, discrimination, and apathy, by remembering, educating, and bearing witness to the Holocaust.
We strive to provide an in depth and interactive educational experience to students and teachers. We offer a range of topics all aligned with NCEA and New Zealand curriculum standards to help you and your students get the most out of your visit to our centre. The centre also holds a biennial seminar in conjunction with Yad Vashem in Israel to help train New Zealand teachers in 'how' and 'why' to teach the Holocaust.

Started by a small group of volunteers including Holocaust survivors, refugees, and their descendants, the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand (HCNZ) is the country’s national Holocaust education and remembrance centre. HCNZ was established in 2007 to remember and honour the victims, and survivors, of the Holocaust, especially families of survivors in New Zealand. Our core exhibition focuses on the unique New Zealand connections to the Holocaust, sharing survivor stories of before, during and after the Holocaust, a timeline of events in Europe & the parallel timeline of New Zealand responses, and much more!
