Library

The VHEC library collection has over 4,000 Holocaust-related books, journals, and videos/DVDs, including reference material, education resources, memoirs, fiction and non-fiction, material for children and young adults, and a small multilingual section. Our education resources include teacher guides, curricula and poster sets. The library is open to everyone for on-site consultation. Teachers and VHEC members have borrowing privileges. Please get in touch with us if you would like more information about our services or collection.

Contact the librarian: library@vhec.org / 604-264-0499

Wish list

The VHEC library depends on the support of donors to strengthen our collection. We have an online wish list that highlights items we would like to add to the library. If you would like to donate an item that you see on our wish list but would prefer to purchase the item from a local bookseller, please contact the librarian so that we can update the wish list to indicate that the item will be donated by other means (this helps us avoid duplicate donations).

Museum Collection

The VHEC maintains a collection of over 1200 items, including documents, photographs, letters and artefacts. The majority of the collection reflects the experiences of local survivors prior to, during and after the Holocaust. These items are preserved for future generations as documentary evidence of the Holocaust and are used for current educational purposes.


IMPORTANT NOTICE

Please be advised the VHEC Archives will be closed to research requests until the 31st of December 2014 as our staff work to facilitate better access to the Centre's collections.

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