Commemoration of the 80th Anniversary of Holodomor
In 2009, the Province of Ontario unanimously passed Bill 147 – The Holodomor Memorial Day Act, which calls for the fourth Saturday in November to be a day of remembrance. This year marks the 80th anniversary of the Holodomor genocide and Dufferin-Peel will commemorate the Holodomor during the week leading up to the Holodomor Memorial Day on November 23rd.
The Holodomor is the name given to the genocide by famine that occurred in Ukraine from 1932 to 1933. As many as 10 million Ukrainians perished as victims of a purposeful famine under Joseph Stalin’s regime, with 25,000 dying each day at the peak of the famine, while the Soviet Union exported grain to Western countries. News reports about the engineered famine in Ukraine were suppressed, records of deaths were sealed and all talk of starvation and the death of millions were denied. It was not until 1991 after the Ukraine gained its independence from the Soviet Union that information about the famine became available and the full extent of the genocidal actions of the Stalin became known.
As is the case with other genocides (Armenian, Nazi Holocaust, and the most recent genocide in Rwanda), the Holodomor is another example of an atrocity that directly destroys the dignity of the human person and the sacredness of life. More information about the Holodomor is available on the website: www.faminegenocide.com along with a variety of curriculum resources and lesson plans suitable for use in secondary schools. As part of the 80th Anniversary events to commemorate the Holodomor, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress is sponsoring a writing competition in which first prize is $700. Submissions of essays, poems, skits, plays, and/or biographies are due by January 15, 2014,
