Ukraine Remembers! The World Acknowledges!

During the last week of November, global Ukrainian community joined Ukraine in honoring the victims of the Holodomor genocide of 1932-33. On Saturday, November 27, 2021, on International Holodomor Memorial Day, we urge you to honor every child, woman, and man who died innocently during this genocide.

UWC  stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine who at 16:00 will light candles of remembrance in honour of the millions of victims.We kindly ask every Ukrainian and friend of Ukraine to:

  • light a candle in the window of your home;
  • pause for a moment of silence at 19:32 local time;
  • and – participate in commemorative events and memorial services in your local communities

UWC  invites everyone to sign and share the petition of the US Committee for Ukrainian Holodomor Genocide Awareness calling for the revocation of American journalist Walter Duranty’s Pulitzer Prize. The petition is available here https://bit.ly/2X9Lduk.

The virtual event brought together more than 500 participants who had the opportunity to hear leading experts from Ukraine and Canada and ask questions. The webinar, dedicated to the 88th anniversary of the tragedy, began with a moment of silence in memory of the victims of the Holodomor.
