The Patron of the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand is Her Excellency The Rt.Hon Dame Patsy Reddy.
With the Holocaust Centre’s work to document the fate of European Jewry under Nazi rule, it has created a site of pilgrimage and a moving shrine to those innocent victims of genocide.
All New Zealanders, whatever their faith, should make a point of visiting the Holocaust Centre. We need to be reminded that such unthinkable events have happened in the past, and can happen again. It reminds us to raise our voices in defence of people who are suffering discrimination, harassment or violence because of their ethnicity or religious affiliations.
As Patron of the Holocaust Centre, I support its work to educate our citizens, honour victims of the Holocaust and provide a focus for the local Jewish community. I wish everyone associated with the Centre, staff and volunteers, all the very best with commemorative and cultural events at the Centre.
The Rt Hon Dame Patsy Reddy, GNZM, QSO Governor-General of New Zealand
