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.
