The Cape Town Holocaust & Genocide Centre is a 2020 TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Winner which puts them in the top 10% of attractions worldwide.
“We are thrilled with all we have accomplished during this trying time. The CTHGC is always in front of the wave with our dedication to our education programmes, our adult programmes and our use of technology and online opportunities,” said Heather Blumenthal, CTHC Director.
“The CTHC team has been working tirelessly to bring Holocaust education to learners and educators in the Western Cape. They have not been able to visit the centre, so we have created online resources for all Grade 11 learners and educators consisting of 8 video lessons, and resource material for both learners and educators, to accompany each lesson. The Western Cape Education Department has uploaded our resources onto their e-portal learning channel and is also printing them so that those learners who do not have access to computers, phones or data, will have the information in hard copy,” she continued.
They have also revamped their website, which is really worth a visit (www.ctholocaust.co.za).
“Our website has been completely revamped and we invite you all to log on to our beautiful, interactive and easy to navigate page and browse the education resources as well as the events, talks, short films, book readings and so much more that we have offered during lockdown.
“We innovate but never lose sight of our core mission which is to remember and honour those who perished in the Holocaust, celebrate and learn from those who survived and educate to ensure that such atrocities will never happen again”.
