VANCOUVER HOLOCAUST EDUCATION CENTRE

BOARD & STAFF

The Vancouver Holocaust Centre Society for Education and Remembrance was founded in 1983 by survivors

of the Holocaust. The founders’ goal, realized in 1994, was to leave a permanent legacy in the form of the

Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre devoted to Holocaust based anti-racism education.

VANCOUVER HOLOCAUST EDUCATION CENTRE

The Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre is a teaching museum promoting human rights, social justice and genocide awareness. It is the leader in Holocaust education in British Columbia, reaching over 15,000 students annually. It produces acclaimed exhibits, innovative school programs and educational resources, including several online teaching exhibits. The VHEC presents numerous public and commemorative events. The Centre publishes a newsletter and maintains a museum collection, archives, public library and resource centre.

Yet, behind the scenes these activities were overshadowed by the staff’s singular focus on researching, designing and mounting an important original exhibit, one that will have national resonance: “Enemy Aliens”: The Internment of Jewish Refugees in Canada, 1940 – 1943. At the exhibit’s opening, the VHEC honoured surviving former internees. The exhibit, the first of its kind in Canada, explores a little-known chapter of our national history: Canada’s wartime internment of over 2,300 refugees of Nazism.

A companion teaching website developed for the Virtual Museum of Canada will serve as an educational legacy of the project.

Similarly, the Board of Directors has been intent on laying the groundwork for the development of a strategic plan and future capital campaign, as we face the inevitable loss of survivors who bear witness to the Holocaust and as we consider the future of Holocaust education.

This will be the last annual report message co-authored by Frieda Miller, who has been with the Centre since its founding in 1994 and is retiring after six years as Executive Director. Frieda has been responsible for much of the dynamic programming at the VHEC in recent years. While she will be sorely missed, we are in a uniquely fortunate position to have Curator and Education Director, Nina Krieger poised to assume the leadership of the Centre. Her talent and vision will help lead the Centre during the

PROJECTIONS: A MONUMENT TO PERSONAL MEMORY

IAN PENN JUNE 30 – SEPTEMBER 16, 2011 In Projections: A Monument to Personal Memory, Penn explores memory and post-memory – the Second Generation’s relationship to the Holocaust – through drawing, video, photography and sculpture. Portraits of elderly women composed of drawings overlaid with video testimony consider how individuals affected by traumatic events project their past in the present.

A companion piece composed of family photographs transformed with wax from melted Shabbat candles addresses the complexity of heritage, ritual and remembrance. Penn’s monument – consisting of two distinct but interrelated installations, the surrounding space punctured by sculptures of parchment paper – suggests a mode of exhibition and commemoration in which the historical and archival, as well as the personal and familiar, are essential for understanding.

THE WARTIME ESCAPE: MARGRET AND H.A. REY’S JOURNEY FROM FRANCE

OCTOBER 17, 2011 – NOVEMBER 30, 2011 The Wartime Escape tells the story of the five month odyssey by bike, train, and boat that brought the creators of Curious George, Margret and H.A. Rey, from the heart of Nazi-occupied France to safety in the United States.
