The Sydney Jewish Museum identifies the 16 Jews who arrived on the First Fleet and describes life for those people in the early days of settlement of Australia.
The main purpose of the museum however is in documenting and teaching the history of the Holocaust. It does this over three floors of exhibitions, video presentations, newspaper clippings, pictures, narrations, letters and first hand accounts.
There are also guided tours.
For those who may never get the opportunity to travel and see what life was like during those years in Europe this an excellent time-capsule that captures a highly significant part of our world's dark history.
