Holodomor Mobile Classroom Exhibit

GDCI students had the opportunity to tour the Holodomor Mobile Classroom exhibit during its Goderich stopover.

The Holodomor is the name given to the genocide by famine that occurred in Ukraine from 1932 to 1933. Millions of Ukrainians perished as victims of a man-made famine under Joseph Stalin’s regime, with 25,000 dying each day at the peak of the famine.

The Holodomor National Awareness Tour is a project of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation, supported by the Government of Canada and the Governments of Ontario and Manitoba, to raise awareness about the Holodomor and help build a strong, democratic, diverse and tolerant society in Canada.
