As Canadians commemorate Remembrance Day and Holocaust Education Week in November, the role of journalists is often overlooked — despite their vital role in sharing stories of the people who lived through these traumatic milestones of history.
From Canadian war veterans to Holocaust survivors, from the fallout of Canada’s residential school system to the victims of sexual assaults, journalists document the suffering and the survival of these witnesses.
Join The Canadian Association of Journalists and Ryerson University Journalism Course Union along with a distinguished panel for a discussion on interviewing survivors: best practices and ethical considerations of journalism and remembrance.
