Etty HillesumThe museum has over 16,000 works of art, ceremonial items and historical objects. Only five percent of these are on permanent display. The rest are stored in the depot and occasionally shown in exhibitions, or lent to other museums. The objects in this hidden collection can be viewed via the website.

The collection of the resource centre covers a wide range of subjects associated with Jewish history and culture in general, comprising over 54,000 books, brochures, documents, photos, audio and video material.
