We are pleased to introduce the new Victoria Holocaust Remembrance and Education Society (VHRES) website. Though much of the content you will find here is new, some of the material has been taken from the previous version of The Hope Site.  Hopesite.ca will remain online till the end of 2013. We recognized the need for an updated website some time ago, and now our vision was made possible by Q College in Victoria, BC. In particular, we would like to thank instructor Denis Eve, T.A. Tom Jarvis and students Christopher Nicolson and Brittany Kohn who have worked with great skill, consideration, and sensitivity.  

Our hope is that our new website will continue to spread awareness of VHRES, our major annual events, our mission to foster solemn remembrance, and the promotion of peace through Holocaust education.
