Explore the Museum

UJA’s Toronto Holocaust Museum is a state-of-the-art facility that inspires visitors to think deeply about the tragedies of the Holocaust and make connections between this history, world events, and contemporary Canadian life. The Museum is a space for education and dialogue about this vital history and its ongoing relevance.

The Museum's History

The roots of the Toronto Holocaust Museum, formerly known as the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre, began with its founding by a group of survivors in 1985. Inspired by this legacy, the Museum today invites visitors to follow the journey of local survivors—including their post-war contributions to Canadian society—through immersive technology.
