VHEC COLLECTIONS

Explore Western Canada's largest collection of Holocaust-
related artefacts, survivor testimonies, archival materials,
and publications through the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre (VHEC) Collections catalogue available at: collections.vhec.org.

The VHEC acquires, preserves and makes available these items as documentary evidence of the Holocaust and its effect on individuals, families and society. A major digitization initiative is underway to make the VHEC's Collections accessible to students, educators, researchers, survivors and the broader public. We are continually adding records and digitized items to the catalogue but not all records in the collection are suitable for digitization. Researchers are encouraged to visit the Centre in person to access non-digitized holdings described in our finding aids.
