Resource Centre and Archive

Use our Resource Centre

Our growing Resource Centre is home to an extensive collection of over 1000 books related to the Holocaust and other genocides. It also contains numerous DVDs, which are available on request, as well as a collection of testimonies from survivors of the Holocaust and Rwandan genocide.

We have available state of the art computers, guest WiFi and other facilities for people to come and conduct research, or simply to read and reflect.

We gratefully welcome donations of relevant books and DVDs to add to our collection. For queries about the Resource Centre and donations, please contact Jordan Saltzman on or +27-11-640-3100

Our Archive

The  JHGC archive was formally established in 2020, with thanks to generous funding from the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung. We collect tangible and intangible objects that relate to Holocaust and Genocide. Thanks to new donations of family collections, unique individual items, and testimonies, our archive continues to grow. We gratefully welcome donations of any objects or stories relating to the Holocaust, or any other genocides, especially those with connections to South Africa.

The JHGC archives and catalogues the objects in our collection, with the assistance of volunteers. Many of our artefacts are constantly added to the digital platform and can be seen on e-Hive, including many of those on display in our permanent exhibition. Please continue to E-Hive to see our growing collection.

We also explore the collection’s artefacts and stories in our popular Archive Friday series on social media, which can be viewed here.

Please contact Jordan Saltzman on regarding donations to the archive and further information about our archive projects

Please note that we only accept objects and testimonies related to the Holocaust and genocide. We do not collect objects related to Jewish life that have no connection to the Holocaust.
