Custodial history

The Local Stories of the Holocaust collection was established by Dr. Helga Thorson, Associate Professor at the University of Victoria. Items in this collection were generated by various different sources, as they were either created for the purpose of being added to this aggregate or donated by the original owners (or their relatives).

Scope and content

The Local Stories of the Holocaust project began in 2012 in order to strengthen Holocaust education by collecting local testimonies as given by those personally affected, primarily survivors and their relatives. This collection consists of video and audio recordings of oral histories and interviews; drafts and publications of written testimonies; commemorative medals; personal documents, such as correspondence; and various pieces of ephemera, including an exhibition brochure, a memorial invitation, and an event program. These items tell stories of lived experiences during the Holocaust, as well as personal narratives of how the Holocaust affected the lives and families of survivors after the war. The project title was changed to "Victoria Holocaust and World War II Memory Archives" in November 2018.
