National Holodomor Awareness Week November 21-27, 2022
National Holodomor Memorial Day Saturday, November 26, 2022

This year, as we mark the 89th anniversary of the Holodomor and launch the 90th anniversary commemorative year, the need to unite in remembrance has never been more critical. The ruthless Russian aggressor is committing yet another genocide of the Ukrainian people and is deliberately attempting to destroy all things Ukrainian. We must remain one with the Ukrainian people in protecting our history, identity, and sharing the truth.

Our message is simple. We are a resilient people. We were not defeated through centuries of persecution, and occupation. The Holodomor, World Wars, Soviet-era persecutions, the Gulags, the Orange Revolution, the Maidan, today’s unprovoked war – did not and will not defeat us. Our strength lies in our truth and our unity.

We unite under the international motto for 2022-2023:

Пам’ятаємо! Єднаємося! Переможемо!

We remember, unite, and shall overcome!

We unite –

  • In memory of all, who throughout the centuries were lost to a nation;
  • In honour of our Holodomor survivors with whom the community was blessed, their will to survive and their hope for a brighter future;
  • In sharing the stories of the People of Truth, who tried to alert the world;
  • In honour of the women and men who throughout history to today defend Ukrainian territory and the Ukrainian people from the genocidal assault of the enemy;
  • In recognition of the bravery and resilience of the Ukrainian people today with their heartbreaking yet inspirational stories.

Because when we unite in remembrance, we fuel the courage, will, resolve and resilience that will lead us to victory.
