Letter of the Day

'Equitable and inclusive'

  • Print

In his Sept. 20 column, Rights museum gets on with it, columnist Dan Lett mischaracterizes the position of the Ukrainian community as being opposed to a Holocaust gallery at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

For three years now, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress has called publicly for an inclusive and equitable museum that would include both Holocaust and Holodomor galleries. To be perfectly clear, we do not oppose a Holocaust gallery in the museum.

Because of its distinct pedagogical value to human-rights education, we have asserted that the Holodomor, arguably one of the greatest acts of genocide in 20th-century European history, should be displayed in a permanent and prominent gallery.

The Ukrainian community's position has been consistent for the past decade and was in fact endorsed by the late Izzy Asper at a meeting and confirmed in a follow-up letter from the Asper Foundation in April 2003 in which he agreed to include the Holodomor.
