National Holodomor Awareness Week – November 23-29, 2020

This year, National Holodomor Awareness Week, commemorating the 87th anniversary of the Holodomor, the Soviet Communist regime’s genocide against the Ukrainian people, will be launched from November 23-29, 2020.

As we gather across Canada in remembrance, we pray for the souls of the victims of the Holodomor. We pray for the good health of the survivors among us and their families who, by sharing their stories, continue to educate and unite us in our mission to raise awareness of the Holodomor.

We pray for the Ukrainian people who continue to defend the territory of Ukraine from the aggression of the Russian Federation and protect the right of every Ukrainian to live with dignity on Ukrainian soil where fundamental human rights and freedoms are respected.
We invite all Canadians to join the Ukrainian community in sharing the story of the Holodomor. To see the list of events taking place this year, please go to: https://www.ucc.ca/2020/11/10/2020-holodomor-commemorations/.
