  • Corporate body
  • 1994–

The Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre (VHEC) was opened in 1994 by the VHCS. The VHEC stewards Western Canada’s largest collection of Holocaust-related artefacts, Holocaust testimonies and archival records. It manages a comprehensive library of books, films, educational resources, as well as rare books and special collections. The VHEC continues to acquire, preserve and make available primary and secondary sources as documentary evidence of the Holocaust and its effect on individuals, families and society.
Through education and remembrance, the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre engages students, educators and the broader public in British Columbia and beyond with the history of the Holocaust — the Shoah — and its ongoing relevance.
