The Museum has multiple goals, however coping with the diminishing number of Survivor Guides is a primary focus. It is necessary for the Museum to plan for the time when Survivor Guides can no longer be at the forefront of the Holocaust Exhibition. Implementation of new display techniques will help to keep the authenticity of the message ‘alive’ for future generations.

Other plans include the development of a dedicated Education Centre to cope with the increasing number of school students and the establishment of a ‘Holocaust and Human Rights Centre.

The funds raised will enable the installation of hi-tech, interactive multi-layered displays, and the construction of the new Education Centre, and ‘Holocaust and Human Rights’ Centre.

‘Last year over 17,000 school students visited the Museum and this year we will see even greater numbers,’ said Roma Shell, Chairman of the Capital Appeal Committee. She stressed the importance of having the latest technology, interfaced with today’s personal communication and information devices, to engage our visitors, especially the young students.

The Museum is hosting four Major Donor Dinners, four Cocktail Parties and a Volunteer High Tea, over the two week period to promote the Capital Appeal.
