TOUR FOR HUMANITY

Presented by: Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center
(Suitable for audiences 12+)
The Tour for Humanity includes three interactive workshops delivered on the bus that will remain parked on site at Grace Place. The innovative, award-winning Tour for Humanity (T4H) project is an integral component of FSWC’s Educational Department. T4H is a 30-seat, wheelchair accessible, mobile human rights education center designed to bring FSWC’s programming directly to people across Ontario and beyond.
The Tour for Humanity bus is brought to us by Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies and provides a unique, educational, and immersive experience on the following topics:
The Global Experience (11 a.m. to 12 p.m.)
This workshop begins with a screening of a three-part documentary series produced by FSWC entitled The Holocaust, Universal Genocide and Real World Heroes. The Ten Stages of Genocide are then discussed in relation to the Holocaust and other world genocides, including Rwanda, Cambodia and crimes against humanity committed in Ukraine and throughout Eastern Europe under Joseph Stalin’s reign. Discussion is encouraged.
The Holocaust: Then and Now (1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.)
“The Holocaust is not just a Jewish story, but a human story.” Explore the history of the Holocaust and the attitudes and social forces that enabled one of the darkest periods of human history to occur.
The Canadian Experience (2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.)
In this workshop, attendees learn about a variety of difficult topics in Canadian history including the Indian Residential Schools System and the systemic internment of Japanese Canadians during the Second World War. Following a review of the past, current issues including cyber bullying and modern-day examples of intolerance are examined and discussed.
