The Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre Archives acquire, preserve and make available documentary evidence and artefacts related to the Holocaust and its effects on individuals, families and society. Holdings consist of materials donated by survivors, families of victims and other eyewitnesses to the Holocaust. These objects are used to educate future generations and the general public about the Holocaust through exhibitions, the creation of pedagogical materials and school programs. 

The Archives are open by appointment Monday through Friday. Researchers may book an appointment in advance of their visit by phoning 604-264-0499 or emailing

A major 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. Researchers are encouraged contact VHEC Collections staff to inquire about our full holdings and to access non-digitized materials described in our finding aids.
