CHESTERVILLE — Students at North Dundas District High School (NDDHS) had an interactive history inside the Tour for Humanity bus, parked outside the school, on Ontario’s Child Abuse Prevention day, Wed., Oct. 24.
While aboard they learned about about global acts of freedom, discrimination, abuse and war through videos. The videos were based on true historical events, including a portion on Canada’s troubling history of removing aboriginal children from their parents, schools, and culture and their effects on today’s society.
The Tour for Humanity bus is operated by the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies.
According to their website the “Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) is a non-profit human rights organization committed to countering racism and antisemitism and to promoting the principles of tolerance, social justice and Canadian democratic values through advocacy and education.”
