    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:


    On Sunday, November 27:

    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:



    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.


    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/

    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

    Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre

    Children of Holodomor Survivors Speak Project


    Ucrainica Research Institute and League of Ukrainian Canadians


    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.
