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).
The tour takes places on a customized 42’ RV, with a state-of-the-art interactive audio-visual technology centre on board. The RV will be wheelchair accessible and will tour Canada, visiting elementary and secondary schools, universities, government buildings, Ukrainian community and Canadian mainstream events, and festivals and gatherings across the country. The goal of the awareness tour is to educate all Canadians about the famine created by Joseph Stalin in 1932-1933, murdering millions of Ukrainians.
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.
