Holocaust-related holdings at Library and Archives Canada

​Canada is a full member of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) which brings together government officials and experts from more than 30 countries. The work of the IHRA is guided by a series of principles, including to facilitate the opening of Holocaust-related archival material.

In this context, Library and Archives Canada has developed a publicly accessible thematic guide that provides a list of Holocaust-related material in its holdings. The Research Guide to Holocaust-related Holdings at LAC [PDF version 1.49 MB] provides an introduction to material from both archival and published sources that relates to a range of events and decisions before, during and after the Second World War. The guide includes both government and personal documents.
