Canadian Museum for Human Rights: Stories

The Canadian Museum of Human Rights, which opened in Winnipeg in 2014, "fosters an appreciation for the importance of human rights, spurs informed dialogue and invites participants to identify the contemporary relevance of past and present human rights events, both at home and abroad." As part of this mission, the museum offers dozens of thoughtful and informative stories sharing narratives about current and historical human rights issues both in Canada and around the world. For example, one recent story focuses on how Canadian musicians have engaged in dialogue around various human rights movements throughout the past several decades, while another story centers on the ongoing Rohingya crisis spurred by persecution in Myanmar (formerly Burma) and calls for justice by Rohingya women. Stories are tagged with categories such as civil and political rights and human rights violations, which visitors can use to browse by theme, but it may be easiest to simply view all of the stories and browse them by title. In addition to photos and images, many of the museums stories incorporate videos and suggestions of further reading, and virtually all of the stories include questions designed to encourage reflection and empathy among their readers.
