The Institute for Research of Genocide Canada is proud to donate to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights a Yellow T- shirt that was worn by the participants of the Silent March on 11 July 2010 in support of the Congress of North America, Canadian Branch and the Institute for Research of Genocide Canada regarding the adoption of the Srebrenica genocide resolution in the Canadian parliament through the streets of Toronto. The yellow T-shirt will speak about the process of “breaking silence” surrounding Srebrenica, and the Parliament’s official recognition of Srebrenica Genocide in Canada, the biggest crime in Europe since the Second World War.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is Canada’s first federal museum devoted to the topic of human rights. Its mission is to enhance the public’s understanding of human rights, promote respect for others, and encourage reflection and dialogue on various human rights issues.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights was established to provide a place for Canadians, and the world, to explore and promote the subject of human rights and to encourage human rights action. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights was the first national museum created since 1967, the first ever to be located outside the National Capital Region, and is the first national museum anywhere in the world dedicated to the broad subject of human rights.
