The Peace & Reconciliation Study Tour offers educators a hands-on experience with the history of WWII in Asia, by visiting historical sites, museums and meeting with experts, educators, curators and survivors. Destinations included locations in China, South Korea, and will include Hong Kong this year. In the future, we hope to include sites in Japan and other Asian countries.
In 2004, the first Peace & Reconciliation Tours for Canadian educators was organized. Since then, over 7 tours, 180 educators were selected to join the Study Tours to Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, and Harbin, China as well as Seoul, South Korea. These educators came from across Canada, the United States, Japan, Germany and Australia to meet with scholars, historians, activists and, most importantly, the survivors of the atrocities. During this emotional journey, the participants completed intensive study sessions with experts, listened to survivor testimonies, and shared insightful discussions.
