The Underbelly of Canadian Multiculturalism : Holocaust Obfuscation and Envy in the Debate about the Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Ball, Karyn and Rudling, Per Anders LU (2014) In Holocaust Studies: A Journal of Culture and History 20(3). p.33-80
Abstract
This essay contextualises the recent controversy about the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR), which opened in September 2014 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, by documenting the background shadowing the campaigns spearheaded by the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress against CMHR advisory board plans to install a permanent gallery devoted to the Holocaust. Their history demonstrates how these ultranationalist lobbies have glorified the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, its militant wing (UPA), and the Waffen-SS Galizien while rationalising or occluding their roles in Second World War period massacres of Jewish and Polish civilians.
