CANADIAN POLISH CONGRESS AND OTHERS JOIN UKRANIAN CONGRESS IN OPPOSING HOLOCAUST ZONE IN CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS MUSEUM

Protest grows over Holocaust ‘zone’ in Canadian Museum for Human Rights

February 24, 2011

An article by James Adams in the  Globe and Mail 'on Feb. 14, 2011 outlines the growing protest over the specific  zone regarding the Holocaust in the plans for the Canadian Jewish Congress.  [Editor's note: The entire article is  worth reading.] It begins as follows: 
 
"Opposition appears to be intensifying to plans to dedicate a specific “zone” to the Holocaust in the newCanadian Museum for Human Rights, while the museum devotes another, single gallery to covering what could be at least 50 other mass atrocities.

Both the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and the Canadian Polish Congress are urging the museum, under construction in Winnipeg and scheduled to open early in 2013, to reconsider what CPC president Teresa Berezowski calls “an inequitable display of what has happened in the world that has gone against human rights.”

The UCC, moreover, wants the Harper government, which established the museum as a self-governing Crown corporation in 2008 and budgeted $100-million toward its $310-million construction, to “suspend any further funding to the museum until [governance issues] are reviewed and addressed in a transparent manner.”
