The Jewish Historical Society has been interviewing community members for over 40 years in order to preserve the history of the Jewish community of British Columbia. To date, we have collected approximately 700 oral history interviews.

This rich resource is a integral component of the Jewish Museum and Archives of British Columbia, and as such we have chosen to showcase a number of oral history excerpts from our collection. This is only a sampling of our oral history collection; please feel free to visit the Archives to discover the wealth of material in our oral history collection.
