The Cape Town Holocaust Centre and South Africa

Journal Article
The Cape Town Holocaust Centre and South Africa
Rob Siebörger
The Cape Town Holocaust Centre is the first such centre in South Africa. At its inception in 1999, its founders considered not only what Cape Town and South Africa could learn about the Holocaust from it, but also what the Centre could contribute to the country in coming to terms with South Africa’s past. When one enters the Cape Town Holocaust Centre, the first of the display sections is devoted to apartheid, as it was realised that if the permanent exhibition was to challenge South Africans at all it would have to contextualise apartheid and its roots before tracing the roots of the Holocaust in Europe.[1]
