This online exhibition was developed with the support of the Virtual Exhibits Investment Program, Virtual Museum of Canada. The Virtual Museum of Canada is managed by the Canadian Museum of History, with the financial support of the Government of Canada.

We would like to thank the Holocaust survivors and their family members who contributed enormously to this exhibition by sharing their experiences, personal photographs and documents.
