National Holodomor Memorial Day
Saturday, November 26, 2016

The Ukrainian Canadian Congress is launching the ninth annual National Holodomor Awareness Week November 21-27, 2016 to commemorate the 83rd anniversary of the Holodomor – Famine Genocide of 1932-33.

As we gather this year to pray for the victims of the Famine Genocide in Ukraine, let us also remember the victims of today’s Russian aggression against Ukraine, including the lives that have been sacrificed for the right of every Ukrainian to live in freedom with dignity on Ukrainian soil on which rule of law prevails and fundamental human rights are respected.

‘Holodomor Memorial Day’
Nov 24 all-day

November is the month of Remembrance and we are again reminded of the Holodomor
— the Genocidal Famine perpetrated by the policies of Joseph Stalin and his Soviet
regime in Ukraine in the years 1932-33. Death inflicted by the starvation of millions of
people, especially children, has left its mark on survivors and their descendants both in
Canada and in Ukraine. The study of the sinister history of the Soviet Holodomor, the
Ukrainian genocide, is particularly relevant today as we strive to educate the world
about different modes of genocide and human rights abuses and try to prevent future
horrific acts against humanity.

The Holodomor Research and Education Consortium (HREC) and the National
Holodomor Education Committee of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, appeals to
individual schools and school boards across Canada to once again commemorate the
fourth Friday in November – November 24th – as ‘Holodomor Memorial Day’ in all
schools. We also encourage teachers to include Holodomor awareness and education in
their lessons around that time. We are enclosing an announcement that could be read
in schools on that day in an information pamphlet for teachers. In addition, we have
included information on an initiative that may be of interest to teachers: the 2018 HREC
Educator Prize: Holodomor Lesson Plan Development for educators creating curriculum
on the Holodomor. We would appreciate your sharing this information with your staff
prior to November 15.

We would be pleased to provide you with further information, resources, curriculum
units or speakers, as well as in-service teacher training sessions on the Holodomor by
trained Ontario educational professionals. For further information or for answers to any
questions, kindly contact us: Valentina Kuryliw, Chair of the National Holodomor
Education Committee of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (416-242-5361) or Lydia
Falcomer at 416-473-6532.

National Holodomor Awareness Week Events

International Holodomor Memorial Day:  Saturday, November 26

Let us remember together.  On Saturday, November 26 we encourage all Canadians to take a moment to remember the victims:

  • At 19:32 (7:32 p.m.) local time pause for a moment of silence wherever one may be to honour the memory of the victims.
  • Light a candle of remembrance in one’s home.
  • Post photos of your candles on social media with your thoughts of remembrance.
  • Request local churches to toll their bells ten times at 19:32 in honour of the victims.

 

On Sunday, November 27:

  • Memorial services will be celebrated in Ukrainian parishes.

National components

We encourage our communities to incorporate the following components into their local programs for national continuity.

  1. Honoring survivors – We honour the survivors among us and include them in commemorations.  We encourage survivors to share their story with our children, youth, the community, Canadians and the media. We also emphasize the need to include the descendants of survivors in our events. They are key to ensuring that the stories live on.

 

Share the Story – Please remember that we have two web sites that feature the poignant testimonies of Holodomor survivors. Please use these clips, which are available with English subtitles, during your commemorations.

We also encourage all of our member organizations to promote the sites by sharing the links on your organizational sites. The two sites are:

www.sharethestory.ca

www.holodomorsurvivors.ca

  1. Installation of black flags – We ask that you continue with the black flag installations. It is proposed that every city set up a display of 33 black flags along with one Ukrainian flag in a high traffic area for the week.  Alternatively, indoor installations can also be prepared for use in government buildings and schools.
  1. Reading names of victims – We continue to personalize this horrific crime by remembering individuals by name.  The names of victims should be read, including the village in which they resided and the age at which they perished.

Resources

A comprehensive list of resources has been made available by the UCC National Holodomor Education Committee. http://www.ucc.ca/programs/committees/national-holodomor-education/holodomor-education-resources/

  • Please also see the Committee’s resources available for Holodomor Memorial Day on the fourth Friday of November.

We have a wealth of Canadian-produced resources on the Holodomor due to the tireless efforts of our Canadian institutions and organizations. Please visit the web sites of:

Holodomor Research and Education Consortium
http://holodomor.ca

Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre
http://www.ucrdc.org/index.html

Children of Holodomor Survivors Speak Project

People of Truth: In addition to the Holodomor resources available to us in Canada, please visit the web site of the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance for additional resources. We draw your attention specifically to a series of posters that was produced for the 2015 commemorations – People of Truth, that highlights individuals who tried to reveal the truth of the Holodomor to the world. The series is available for downloading at the links provided. Please note, however, that the posters include the date of Holodomor Memorial Day in 2015, not 2016.

Holodomor National Awareness Tour

The Canada Ukraine Foundation (CUF) with its partners, Ukrainian Canadian Congress, The Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre and Holodomor Research and Education Consortium, has fully launched the Holodomor National Awareness Tour including the Holodomor Mobile Classroom.

Many across Canada have now had the opportunity to experience the project which has received financial support from the Government of Canada and the provincial governments of Ontario and Manitoba to date.

We encourage all communities to take full advantage of the benefits of this Mobile Classroom for educational purposes as well as for enhancing community outreach.

More information on this project is available on the project web site www.holodomortour.ca.

 

Fundraising Campaign

The UCC National Holodomor Awareness Committee continues to raise funds for continuing awareness campaigns and educational initiatives.

We continue to distribute the awareness ribbon car magnet across the country. They are to be handed out as a thank you for a minimum $5 donation in support of UCC Holodomor Awareness initiatives.

The magnets can be ordered by contacting the UCC Head Office lesia@ucc.ca.
