Storypods  feature the inspiring stories of  Holocaust survivors who volunteer as museum guides at the Jewish Holocaust Centre  (JHC)  in Melbourne, Australia.

The Jewish Holocaust Centre was the fulfilment of a vision by Melbourne Holocaust survivors to create a memorial to the millions of Jews who were murdered between 1933 and 1945.

The Centre was established under the patronage of  Yad Vashem, Jerusalem and,  from its humble beginnings in 1984,  has grown to become an active and internationally-recognised institution dedicated to combating racism, hatred and prejudice by fostering tolerance and understanding.

Museum has created state-of-the-art interactive displays designed to help keep the survivors’ voices and stories alive in the museum, long after they themselves are able to be in the museum. The vision was to present traditional storytelling with a 1930s  aesthetic to the  iPod generation.  The users navigates their own paths through the original documents and survivor testimony contained within each interactive kiosk, each person creating his or her own experience.
