The “Holodomor National Awareness Tour”, is a joint project between four organizations: the Canada Ukraine Foundation (CUF, the lead on the project), the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC), the Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre (UCRDC) and the Holodomor Research and Educational Consortium (HREC). Partially funded by Canada’s federal government and the government of the province of Ontario, it will tour classrooms across the country, raising awareness and teaching about the Holodomor. Details- http://www.holodomortour.ca/.
This project will operate as a teaching module for elementary and high school students, teaching the values of multiculturalism, diversity, and the importance of human rights and freedoms, the rule of law and respect for human dignity. It will also present the concept of crimes against humanity and genocide as seen through the lens of the Holodomor.
Ambassador-desigmate and the Embassy staff got acquainted with the project.
