AT A SCHOOL or COMMUNITY NEAR YOU
TORONTO - May 2, 2016 - The Holodomor Mobile Classroom (HMC) is officially on the road, spreading awareness about the man-made Famine of 1932-33 in which millions of Ukrainians were starved to death.
The HMC visited six Ontario high schools and three Ukrainian Saturday schools in March and April, reaching more than 650 students with up to four lessons per day being given in the HMC. Mark Melnyk, the Department Head of History for the York Region District School Board, called it "one of the coolest, most immersive learning experiences we have been fortunate to share with our students," adding that "its use of state-of-the-art technology is captivating for a generation of students that are often hard to impress."
