Resource Center

Use Our Resource Center

Our growing Resource Centre is home to an extensive collection of books, journals, and other publications related to the Holocaust and other genocides. It also contains numerous DVDs, as well as a collection of testimonies from survivors of the Holocaust and the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. We have computers, guest WiFi and other facilities available on-site for people to come and conduct research, or simply to read and reflect.

Thanks to the support of the public and the hard work of volunteers, the JHGC opened a lending library in 2021. JHGC members and volunteers are able to borrow select books for a month at a time.

We gratefully welcome donations of relevant books and other items to add to our collection. Please note that our focus is primarily related to 20th century genocide and related themes such as human rights. We do not collect books solely related to Jewish religion and culture unless they are of historical value, in which case they will be considered for the archive.

If you would like to enquire about a specific title or book a time in the Resource Centre please contact Dowi@jhbholocaust.co.za or call the office on +27-11-640-3100.
