Jewish Tribune: Holocaust horrors photo display in Canada Parliament

Wednesday, 03 November 2010
OTTAWA – A graphic, sometimes shocking photo exhibit chronicling the Nazi massacre of Jews at Babi Yar, Ukraine, 70 years ago will be displayed in Parliament, Nov. 8-9, as Parliamentarians gather from around the world for the second annual conference of the Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism (ICCA).

The gathering is hosted in partnership with the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration Canada and will focus on such issues as antisemitism, racism and other forms of intolerance.
The Ukrainian delegation to the conference, headed by MP Oleksander Feldman, created the exhibit “to remind the participants that words and ideologies have consequences, and in the case of the Holocaust resulted in the murder of six million Jewish men, women and children in Europe,” said Feldman.
Babi Yar, just outside Kiev, will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the mass murder, in which 150,000 Jews were slaughtered during a three-day period, next year. MP Feldman is creating a museum to record details of the tragedy, which befell Ukrainian Jews, and one of its central goals will be to locate and properly identify tens of unmarked mass graves from the Nazi era in Ukraine and Germany.
