Today, there is an alarming and virulent increase in human rights violations in North America and worldwide; anti-Semitism, violence, racism, and hatred. Quebec is one of the provinces in Canada that does not mandate Holocaust education. Major changes in the content of curricula in schools is required.
In response to this reality, the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) launched a Holocaust Education Program. This project was funded for the 2022-2023 academic year by the Jewish Community Foundation of Montreal. This enabled hundreds of students and their teachers, most of whom are not Jewish, to visit the Montreal Holocaust Museum, meet and hear from Holocaust survivors and learn about the consequences of antisemitism. In addition, the EMSB has organized relevant webinars streamed directly into classrooms.
As these students move on to CEGEP and university they will have the tools to be our ambassadors, responding appropriately to the many anti-Semitic campaigns on campus.
We are presently seeking financial contributions to the Holocaust Education Program at the EMSB in order to secure the continuation of this vital project. Every dollar will help! Every donation will be greatly appreciated and a full tax receipt will be issued.
Contributions may be sent to The English Montreal School Board, 6000 Fielding Avenue, Room 109, Montreal, Quebec, H3X 1T4
