Donate An Artefact

The VHEC stewards Western Canada’s largest collection of Holocaust-related artefacts, Holocaust testimonies and archival documents. It also holds a comprehensive library of books, films, educational resources, as well as rare books and special collections. The VHEC acquires, preserves and makes available these items as documentary evidence of the Holocaust and its effect on individuals, families and society.

Many survivors and people in the community have Holocaust-related artefacts, even the smallest of which can tell an important story and reach a broad audience for generations to come through the VHEC’s collections database and its exhibitions and programming. The VHEC’s museum, library and archival holdings are the result of generous donations from survivors, families of survivors and community members.
