Bishop A. Carter students took part of a enriching and eye opening activity. The term Holodomor (death by forced starvation, in Ukrainian) refers to the starvation of millions of Ukrainians in 1932-33. The Holodomor was the result of policies of the leadership of the Soviet Union and the Communist Party, which inflicted the Holodomor on the Ukrainian countryside.The ³Holodomor National Awareness Tour² is an RV travelling across Canada and the USA. The RV is set up like a theatre with 12 "4K" televisions. They are also equipped with tablets which students used for group work and interactive learning. Students left the RV with a better understanding of what a genocide really is and the importance of the tolerance to other cultures.
