NTV: Holodomor National Awareness Tour

In the early 1930s, millions of Ukrainians starved to death in a manmade famine, remembered today as Holodomor. Last month, the Holodomor national awareness tour made its first ever visit to this province. NTV’s Maria Kavatsiuk has more.

Canada Ukraine Foundation: The Holodomor National Awareness Tour – Program of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation since 2014

Holodomor describes the 1932-1933 famine-genocide of Ukraine, where millions of Ukrainians were deliberately starved to death by the brutal policies imposed by the communist regime of the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin.

The Canada-Ukraine Foundation developed the Holodomor National Awareness Tour (HNAT) program in 2014 to foster education and bring awareness of the Holodomor to Canadians.

The Holodomor Mobile Classroom (HMC), a state-of-the-art education center, helps educate Canadians of all ages on the tragic historic events of the Holodomor and is a key component of the HNAT program. To date, the HMC has visited 525 schools engaging over 43,400 students and educators and connected with over 24,675 people across Canada at 289 community events.

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.

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.
