Argentine community promotes literature on Ukrainian history and culture

The Ukrainian Central Representation of Argentina persists in disseminating Ukrainian literature nationwide to enhance local understanding of Ukraine. Collaborating with the Society of Argentinian-Ukrainian Graduates, they unveiled two publications at the Buenos Aires book fair on April 28th.

The Ukrainian community presented a book by scholar and writer Roksolana Hnatiuk about the life of Ukrainian opera singer Solomiya Krushelnytska. “The author conducted a comprehensive analysis of the life and work of this wonderful Ukrainian singer, who, upon arriving in Argentina, left behind an amazing image of a unique performer. She sang the national anthem of Argentina during the centenary of Argentine independence, which is a true feat for a foreign performer,” wrote the Ukrainian Central Representation of Argentina.

The second publication showcased to the public was a book by Professor Paul Robert Magocsi from Canada titled “Ukraina Redux: On Statehood and National Identity.” “Javier Veramendi translated the book, and editing and proofreading were done by Dr. Jeremías M.Taurydzkyj, who was responsible for the presentation. The foreword to the book was written by Dr. María C. Zinko, and its promoter, who also helped correct the text for publication, was Dr. Oleh Romanyschyn, who discussed the author’s life and other works,” wrote the Ukrainian community.

Dr. Pedro Lylyk, President of the Ukrainian Central Representation of Argentina, stressed the need for Argentine society to heighten its understanding of the intricate challenges Ukraine faces amid relentless Russian aggression.
