In addition we make available copies of the book "The Holocaust - The Nazi Genocide Against The Jewish People" in association with stagings of The Shadows of Shoah Exhibition. The book was produced by NSW Board of Jewish Deputies. It is 64 pages and provides an excellent summary of the subject.


The exhibition was staged at Waikato Museum in 2014. The museum produced a supplementary educational resource for schools. It included "Suggested Pre Visit Focus Activities" and "Post Visit Reflection Activities". It can be viewed here.


Lakes District Museum (Arrowtown) produced an excellent educational resource for schools. It can be viewed here.


Educator Stephen Beguely produced another excellent resource based on the story Holocaust survivor Benjamin Steiner. His "mini unit" can be viewed here.
