Nov 3, 2019 - Nov 10, 2019
Holocaust Education Week is at a crossroads. Faced with the passing of living memory, ongoing local demographic shifts and international surges in antisemitism and intolerance, we must pose a difficult question: 75 years later, why should Canadians learn about the Holocaust?
In 2019, HEW expands its focus to examine the Holocaust from a universal and intersectional perspective, illuminating the relevance of Holocaust education to all Canadians and their concerns for the 21st century.
Despite some troubling results from a recent study commissioned by the Azrieli Foundation in partnership with the Claims Conference, 85% of Canadians agree on Holocaust education’s importance. The challenge is to maintain its relevance before it fades from memory.
Join this year as “Holocaust matters NOW” is explored. Together, we can continue to build a brighter tomorrow for all.
