The VHEC produces a highly regarded, professionally designed magazine, Zachor (Remember) three times a year. This publication communicates with VHEC members and the wider public about the Centre’s programs, events and current issues related to human rights, social justice and Holocaust education.
A generous donation from Morris z’l & Yosef Wosk in 1999 allowed the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre to establish the Wosk Publishing Program at the VHEC. The program’s first juried competition took place in 1999 and attracted a number of manuscripts. The jury selected local survivor Michel Mielnicki’s manuscript Bialystok to Birkenau: The Holocaust Journey of Michael Mielnicki (as told to John Munro). This book, with an introduction by Sir Martin Gilbert, was co-published with Ronsdale Press, in the fall of 2000.
