Canada Responds to the Holocaust, 1944-45explores interactions between Canadians in Europe and survivors of the Holocaust at the close of the Second World War and in the immediate postwar era. It follows members of the Canadian military — soldiers, chaplains, official photographers and war artists — who fought in the Allied campaigns in Europe, as well as journalists and aid workers, as they encountered and struggled to respond to evidence of Nazi atrocities.

This original exhibition, produced by the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre, has been researched and written by Richard Menkis and Ronnie Tessler, with the Bergen-Belsen panels by Mark Celinscak.


Produced by the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre and funded by the Government of Canada.
