The 88th anniversary of the Holodomor genocide is approaching. Calendar of Commemorations

On Saturday, November 27, 2021, Ukrainians around the world will join Ukraine and the international community in honoring the victims of the Holodomor of 1932-33, the genocide of the Ukrainian people that, while being a terrible page in history, did not break the Ukrainian nation in its quest for dignity and freedom.

This year, the UWC’s main commemorative event honouring the victims of the Holodomor will be the “Holodomor and the Nation: Multigenerational Effects” webinar which will feature leading historians and experts from Ukraine and around the world. The event will take place on November 18, 2021. Register here.

The UWC International Holodomor Coordinating Committee, in its recent address to Ukrainian organizations and communities, called on Ukrainians around the world to honor every man, woman, and child who died innocently during this genocide on Saturday, November 27, 2021, International Holodomor Remembrance Day, with a minute of silence at 19:32 (7:32 pm) local time, lighting candles in the windows of their homes and participating in commemorative events and services in their local communities.

In addition, the UWC invites everyone to sign and share the petition of the US National Committee Ukrainian Holodomor Genocide Awareness calling for the revocation of American journalist Walter Duranty’s Pulitzer Prize. The petition is available here.
