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

Opposition appears to be intensifying to plans to dedicate a specific “zone” to the Holocaust in the new Canadian 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.”
