This year marks the 85th anniversary of Holodomor, which refers to the genocidal starvation of millions of Ukrainians in 1932-33.

A mobile classroom, currently touring the country to inform Canadians about the Ukrainian genocide, will visit 5 GECDSB secondary schools during the week of November 26th:

  • Monday, Nov. 26                  -           Tecumseh Vista Academy

The Holodomor Mobile Classroom is an innovative educational module where students participate in a 60 minute, facilitator-led, interactive experience known as "The Historian's Craft". The mobile will also be available to the public after school until 7:00 p.m. each day.
