The Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre was established to raise awareness of the evils of genocide with a particular focus on the Holocaust and the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.
 
Using donated and recycled materials, architect Lewis Levin has created a design informed by discussions with survivors of the Holocaust and the Rwandan genocide. It serves as a memorial to the six million Jews who were killed in the Holocaust, all victims of Nazi Germany, and the estimated 800,000 Tutsi victims of the Genocide in Rwanda; and to teach about the consequences of prejudice, racism, antisemitism, homophobia and xenophobia and the dangers of indifference, apathy, and silence to freedom and democracy.
 
We will be led through the permanent by Ronny Silbermann of the JHGC.
