New programs as museum reopens

The Sydney Jewish Museum warmly welcomed a steady stream of visitors through its doors on November 22, when it reopened to the public.

FOLLOWING almost five months of closure due to the lockdown, staff and guides at the Sydney Jewish Museum (SJM) warmly welcomed a steady stream of visitors through its doors on November 22, when it reopened to the public. The SJM has an exciting summer program of survivor talks, and opportunities to use new interactive technology.

Olga Horak is one of six Holocaust survivors whose biographies were recorded in December 2020 in 3D hologram style, using artificial intelligence processing, as part of the Dimensions in Testimony project, produced in collaboration with the USC Shoah Foundation.

Holocaust survivor visitor guides will be on hand for a series of talks from 11am on Tuesdays and Thursdays from December 21 to January 25 (excluding December 28).

The SJM Voices app also lets visitors listen to testimonies by survivors, perpetrators, witnesses and experts, as they move through the exhibition.
