Administrative/Biographical HistoryThe Yom Hashoah Holocaust Remembrance Committee of the Canadian Jewish Congress was founded in 1952 as the Warsaw Ghetto Memorial Committee with the purpose of honouring the memory of those who died at the hands of the Nazis in the Warsaw ghetto uprising. In 1978, Rob Krell and Paul Heller negotiated a name change to reflect a recognition of all those who suffered in the Holocaust. The Committee organized an annual memorial evening on Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) and sponsored other community events related to education and awareness about the Holocaust. The relationship between the Yom Hashoah Holocaust Remembrance Committee and the Canadian Jewish Congress transitioned in the mid-1980s, when responsibility for the administration of the committee moved to the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre Society. After 2014, Yom Hashoah commemorative events have been organized by staff of the VHEC.
