Annual Reports & Publications
The VHEC produces a highly regarded, professionally designed magazine, Zachor (Remember), two 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.
The Fall 2022 issue of Zachor features an article by filmmaker Daniel Schubert, who writes about his experience with antisemitism in school, memories of Odessa from Dr. Dina Golovanevskaya and updates about recent VHEC projects and collaborations.
This issue’s No Longer Alone contribution is an excerpt from Robbie Waisman’s Boy from Buchenwald, recently published by Bloomsbury.
The VHEC annual report provides an in-depth, comprehensive overview of our achievements from the preceding year.

Wosk Publishing Program
A generous donation from Morris J. 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.
