CLASSROOM WORKSHOPS

We are offering classroom-based workshops facilitated by VHEC docents. The 60 minute long workshop consists of a short film that focuses on rescue and decision making during the Holocaust followed by an interactive presentation by the docent. The workshops are recommended for students in grades 6 to 12 and classes of 30 students. Classroom workshops can be tailored for post-secondary groups, student teachers and other groups.

Please visit the Book a workshop page for more detailed information.

SYMPOSIA ON THE HOLOCAUST

Symposia on the Holocaust are held each May at the University of British Columbia, and throughout the year in school districts across British Columbia.

At the day-long event at UBC, over five hundred senior high school students engage with survivor speakers in small group sessions, view a film and hear from a historian.

The VHEC presents annual district-wide Symposia for students in the following school districts: Abbotsford, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Shawnigan Lake School (Vancouver Island), Surrey, and West Vancouver.
