Thoughts about the Holodomor

Dorothy Korol for UCC Canora and the Canora Ukrainian Heritage Museum

Each year in November, we pay tribute to those who perished and those who managed to survive the Holodomor in Ukraine. It is difficult to imagine the horrors that human beings can inflict on fellow humans.

As we learn more and more about that time, we are more drawn to the need to make sure it does not happen again. Occasionally we would see articles denying the Holodomor. When the archival documents were finally released in Russia, Ukraine and elsewhere the denying tended to disappear. More and more research has been published. Video presentations have become available.In our Canora Ukrainian Heritage Museum, we usually marked the day in some way. We would often get together, say a prayer, have a cup of tea, water or broth and crackers, read some new information or watch a video. These were commemorations and not socials. Of course, this is more difficult this year because of the pandemic but we have been able to take advantage of some of our communication gadgets to remind ourselves of this somber event in history.

In 2019, we were able to sponsor the Holodomor Bus, the mobile Classroom, for the school in Canora and it was also available one afternoon for the community. Such a wonderful learning experience! In addition to our UCC Branch and the museum, the local branch of the Canadian Legion chose to contribute.

Let us continue learning and studying so we do not forget. Let us say a prayer for those souls who died such a horrendous death. Let us practice kindness and compassion. It is catchy and in a small way, we can spread good.
