Dr. Robert Krell

Vancouver, British Columbia

Hidden as a child in the Netherlands during the Holocaust, acclaimed child and family psychiatrist and UBC professor emeritus, Dr. Krell deeply understands the necessity of Holocaust remembrance: learning from its lessons, providing education, supporting survivors and ensuring their stories are not lost. Dr. Krell founded the Holocaust Education Centre in Vancouver in 1994; tens of thousands of students have visited the centre to learn about the terrible consequences of racial prejudice and the ways to combat it. Dr. Krell also founded a group for child survivors, giving voice to their experience.
