Summary

The Montreal Holocaust Memorial Center (MHMC) is a museum in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, dedicated to Holocaust education and awareness. It was founded in 1979 by a group of Holocaust survivors and facilitated by the philanthropy of Steven Cummings. The Center's mandate is to educate people of all ages and backgrounds about the genocidal murder of six million Jews by Nazi Germany and its collaborators between 1933-1945.

By raising Holocaust awareness the MHMC aims to alert the public to the dangers of antisemitism, bigotry and hate, while promoting respect for diversity and the sanctity of all human life.

The center was inaugurated in July 2003 and is the first major Holocaust museum in Canada. It also highlights the role of Montreal, a city that is home to the third largest Holocaust survivor population in the world. The museum tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes, the voices and the possessions of those few who survived the horrors and made a new home in the city.
