Holodomor National Awareness tour stops at Guelph Civic Museum

On Friday, July 7, the Holodomor National Awareness Tour will make a day-long stop at Guelph Civic Museum.

The Holodomor National Awareness Tour is a project of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation, supported by the Canadian and Ontario governments, to create awareness of the Holodomor genocide famine. The Holodomor Mobile Classroom is a 40-foot RV that has been redesigned into a state-of-the-art technological interactive learning environment that brings awareness to the historical events of the Holodomor Genocide of 1932-1933 and its relevance to democracy, diversity, freedom, tolerance and human rights today. It aims to empower participants to make a change and take action against hate and intolerance. It also helps visitors understand how a lack of intercultural understanding can lead to injustices.

The Holodomor Mobile Exhibit will be in the parking lot of Guelph Civic Museum Friday, July 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This tour coincides with a new exhibition at the Civic Museum, To the Gathering Place, which speaks to migration and immigration to Guelph.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street, Guelph.
