Museum Collection

The Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre (VHEC) stewards Western Canada’s largest collection of more than 1200 Holocaust-related artefacts, photographs, survivor testimonies and archival documents. Holdings consist of materials donated by survivors, families of victims, and other eyewitnesses of the Holocaust. The Centre acquires, preserves, and makes available these items as documentary evidence of the Holocaust and its effects on individuals, families, and society.

A major digitization initiative is underway to make the VHEC Collections more accessible to students, educators, scholars, visitors, and the broader public. The VHEC is processing, digitizing and cataloguing artefacts, documents, books, and Holocaust survivor audio-video testimony in preparation for the launch of a new online catalogue.

For more information follow VHEC Collections on twitter @VHECCollections


IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Please be advised the VHEC Archives will be closed to research requests until the December 31st, 2017 as our staff work to facilitate better access to the Centre's collections.

Thank you for your understanding and our apologies for any inconvenience.
