The VHEC Library has over 4,000 Holocaust-related books, journals, and films. We provide access to educational resources, reference material, rare books and special collections, memoirs, memorial books, fiction and non-fiction, and material for children and young adults. The Library also houses a small multilingual collection. 

The Library is available for browsing during the VHEC's operating hours. If you require access to Rare Books & Special Collections or other assistance, please book an appointment with the librarian at 604-264-0499 or

As the collection is in the process of being added to our online catalogue, visitors are encouraged to contact the librarian to inquire about library holdings and availability before traveling to the VHEC.
