Canada Allocates $800K To Preserve Holocaust Survivor Testimonies
Funds Will Go To Four Different Jewish Organizations
Canada has allocated $800,000 to preserve the testimonies of Holocaust survivors. The funding from the federal Citizenship and Immigration department will go to four Jewish organizations in Canada to gather video testimony from survivors.
“Canada has been profoundly shaped by approximately 40,000 Holocaust survivors who resettled across our country after World War II,” Jason Kenney, the minister for multiculturalism, said in a recent statement. “As Canadians, it is our responsibility to learn from these brave individuals and ensure that the horrible events of the Holocaust are not forgotten, and ensure that such atrocities never happen again.”
