Event details

In the early 1930s, a deliberate famine was imposed on the Ukrainian nation under Joseph Stalin during the Soviet era. Millions of people died during this act of forced starvation, which has become known as the Holodomor – a Ukrainian word meaning “death by hunger.”

Since 2008, the fourth Saturday in November has been recognized in Canada as Ukrainian Famine and Genocide Memorial Day.

On November 18, 2019, the Museum, along with the Ukrainian Canadian Congress‐Manitoba Provincial Council, will commemorate the Holodomor with a presentation from Dr. Roman Serbyn. Dr. Serbyn will take an in depth look at the Holodomor, and the consequences of this genocide still evident in Ukraine. Following the presentation, there will be an audience question period.

Dr. Serbyn is a historian, a retired history professor from the University of Quebec in Montreal, and one of the early founders of genocide studies in Canada. He is currently exploring the Holodomor as a comprehensive genocide against the Ukrainians in the USSR.
