International Tourist Guides Day 2021

The Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre 1 Duncombe Rd



On the 21st of February each year, WFTGA International Tourist Guide Day (ITGD) is marked by events and activities arranged by WFTGA members in their countries and cities to celebrate our profession

Due to the debilitating time, we have gone through in the last year the IPTGSA deemed it fit to celebrate International Tourist Guides Day in The Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre with a free educational on the Covid-19 Tourist Guide protocol.

The JHGC serves as a memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, Nazi Germany, and the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. As a centre of memory, education, dialogue, and lessons for humanity, the JHGC focus on human rights issues such as prejudice, racism, ‘othering’, antisemitism, homophobia, and xenophobia. Conscious of the dangers of indifference, apathy, and silence, the JHGC urges its visitors to be an active voice against instances of hate speech and related human rights violations in their own communities.

Please join the members of the IPTGSA in exploring the Center and joining in for a free certified course on Covid-19 protocol. All registered tourist guides and related people may come and enjoy the morning of education and networking.
