The Freeman Family Foundation Holocaust Education Centre thrives as a separate physical space within the Marion and Ed Vickar Jewish Museum.


Visitors enter by walking though a replica of the boxcar doors, which sealed the fate of so many, transported to the death camps during the dark days of the Shoah.


The Centre contains permanent exhibits, including photographs, original documents and artifacts donated by Manitoba survivors and their families. Information displays about the Holocaust, coupled with stark images, create an arresting atmosphere consistent with the themes of remembrance and action.


The Centre is equipped with audio-visual equipment for presentations and can accommodate groups of 10 to 50. Thousands of students from throughout the province have already walked through the boxcar doors along with interfaith groups, service clubs, seniors' groups and more. A special reading room with books on the Holocaust, a computer with Internet is available for research purposes upon request. A Kaddish corner offers the opportunity for prayer and reflection. To book a presentation or arrange a tour give our office a call.
