We visited the Holocaust Centre as part of a visit to the Jewish Museum and Great Synagogue. The Center was the highlight of the visit. Very good exhibits. Not so much about South Africa and the Holocaust, but a more general display of the Holocaust....More

Worth a visit if history is your thing, obviously not as detailed as the Holocaust centre in Berlin.

Visiting this very important centre is difficult and so moving...it is well worth the visit. The exhibition is so well put together and gives very comprehensive explanations of the rise of the Nazi's and their plans for the "final solution". So disturbing...and so well done!...More

Very well put together exhibition and museum of the horrors of the Holocaust. A fitting tribute to the 6 million Jews killed. Very important for all ages and people to see.

This is Cape Towns must see places along with the District 6 Museum. Both need time and second visits to fully appreciate the horror and mans inhumanity to man. Neither must ever be repeated.
