Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre

The teacher candidate should have subject knowledge about the Holocaust and a keen interest in the subject matter.

The Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre (VHEC) was founded in 1994 by survivors of the Holocaust who wanted to leave a legacy to the citizens of British Columbia in the form of an anti-racism education centre.

The VHEC promotes human rights, social justice and genocide awareness through education and remembrance of the Holocaust. An internationally recognized teaching museum and the leading provider of Holocaust education in British Columbia, the Centre reaches more than 25,000 students and teachers annually with its acclaimed teaching exhibits, innovative school programs, Holocaust survivor speaker presentations, symposia on the Holocaust and teaching resources.

The Centre also provides professional development for teachers, delivers public cultural and commemorative events, maintains a museum collection and archives, and a library.
