Scope and Content
The MHMC acquires and preserves artefacts, documents and testimonies of Holocaust witnesses for study, reference, and presentation to the public, together with information about them. The Museum collection holds more than 9,700 items consisting of over 4,800 textual records (including 2,000 items of correspondence), 3,400 graphic material items (including 3,000 photographs) and 1,500 objects related to the history of the Holocaust. Among the objects collected are personal objects, household items, ceremonial artefacts, currency and artworks created before and during the Second World War. The majority of these objects is directly linked to personal stories and therefore has a unique value. The items in collection originate from over 60 different countries and are written in 30 different languages. The collection also comprises over 3,000 hours of video interviews representing the life stories of 500 Holocaust survivors interviewed by the MHMC. Materials in the MHMC Collection illustrate and document the prewar life of communities that were persecuted by the Nazi party (National Socialist German Workers' Party or NSDAP) regime; the crimes of the NSDAP regime and its collaborators; the world's response to the NSDAP regime and its occupation of Europe and the experience of Holocaust victims including resistance, rescue, and life in hiding. The Collection also holds items recording the experience of Holocaust survivors after Liberation, such as the postwar resettlement experience (Displaced Persons' camp), the re-emergence of Jewish life after the war and immigration of Holocaust survivors to Canada directly after the war and the pursuit of justice through war crimes trials.

MHMC-01
History Biographical
The Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre was founded in 1979 by a group of Holocaust survivors and other members of the Montreal Jewish community. The first objects, documents and photographs which were to form the basis of the collection were donated by Holocaust survivors living in Montreal. The MHMC museum was opened in 1979 to the public in the Federation CJA building on Côte-Sainte-Catherine Road and soon reached schools and other groups with temporary exhibitions and survivor testimony. In 1991, the Centre was incorporated under federal jurisdiction. In 2001, the Quebec Minister of Culture and Communications recognized the Centre as a museum institution. In June 2003, following a period of renovations and extension, the new permanent exhibition of the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Museum was inaugurated by Canada's Prime Minister and the Premier of Quebec. The MHMC Museum is open to the public year-round and presents over 380 artefacts in its permanent exhibition. The Museum now reaches over 15,500 visitors each year, as well as many thousands other participants through educational events and pedagogical tools. The Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre educates people of all ages and backgrounds about the Holocaust, while sensitizing the public to the universal perils of antisemitism, racism, hate and indifference. Through its Museum, its commemorative programs and educational initiatives, the Centre promotes respect for diversity and the sanctity of human life.
Notes
General note :The Collection is documented according to the Info-Muse Network documentation system based on standards proposed by the Canadian Heritage Information Network.
