Holodomor tour enlightening

November 3, 2022 from the Free Press: Letters to the Editor.

I recently visited the Holodomor National Awareness Tour at The Forks.

In 1932-33 Stalin tried to starve the Ukrainians by taking away their food.

He had his soldiers actually take away the grain, vegetables and livestock so that the people would starve. Millions of Ukrainians starved to death.

Ukrainians then did not wish to give up their land and rights to Stalin’s communism, so he brought on this genocide. Much the same as the evil Vladimir Putin is doing today.

Holodomor, un musée mobile qui raconte le génocide ukrainien

October 30, 2022 from CBC Manitoba.

Sur demande de la branche manitobaine du Congrès national ukrainien, le bus Holodomor, un musée sur roue qui retrace l’histoire du génocide ukrainien, a fait un arrêt de trois jours au Musée canadien pour les droits de la personne, à Winnipeg.

Au sein du véhicule, le visiteur est entouré de documents d’époques et des vidéos d’archives racontant l’histoire méconnue de la famine génocidaire de 1932 à 1933, qui a entraîné la mort de près de 4 millions d’Ukrainiens.

Ukraine envoy slams grain blockade. Ambassador says Russian move could stoke food crisis

October 30, 2022 from the Free Press.

The Holodomor was a man-made famine in Soviet Ukraine that killed millions of people from 1932-33. Canada recognizes it as a genocide.

Kovaliv addressed the situation while making her first visit to Manitoba since becoming Kyiv’s ambassador to Canada.

She was appointed in March, about two weeks after Russia launched its unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

On Sunday, she visited an interactive mobile classroom that travels around Canada to teach people about the famine.

The Holodomor National Awareness Tour bus was parked outside the Canadian Museum for Human Rights at The Forks for four days in conjunction with the national gathering of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.

Cross-country tour bringing awareness to Ukrainian famine stops in Winnipeg

October 30, 2022 from City News – Winnipeg.

A mobile classroom on wheels is part of the national awareness tour teaching Canadians about the Holodomor.

It examines how Russia and the Soviet Union have used hunger as a weapon against Ukraine.

The mobile bus was in Winnipeg from Thursday to Sunday – parked outside the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

“What happened in the past can and is happening today,” said Roma Dzerowicz, the manager of the Holodomor National Awareness Tour.

In 1932 and 1933, Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin ordered food seizures aimed at starving Ukrainian peasantry, resulting in the deaths of millions of Ukrainians.

Dzerowicz says this act by Stalin was to eradicate, insubordinate, and squash independence and freedom from the Ukrainian people – a genocide which was denied and kept secret for decades.
