Each year, UCCA solemnly commemorates the Holodomor Genocide of 1932-1933 – one of the darkest pages of our people’s history. Marking the solemn anniversary of the Holodomor remains an essential component to educating our youth and raising awareness of  Stalin’s Famine-Genocide of Ukrainians.

UCCA is grateful to our branches and members who not only actively engage their local governments in marking this historic anniversary with local and statewide Proclamations, but also help garner support for Holodomor statements from the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. In 2018, Congress recognized the Holodomor as Genocide, with language emphasizing the deliberate and premediated atrocities committed by the Soviet government against the Ukrainian nation.

On the eve of the 88th anniversary of the Holodomor in Ukraine (1932-33), the Global Holodomor Descendants’ Network (HDN USA & HDN Canada) and the Ukrainian World Congress International Coordinating Committee for Holodomor Awareness and Recognition invite you to a webinar with the participation of leading experts, historians, and scientists.

Key issues:

  • How has the Holodomor impacted the behaviors and norms of Ukrainians in Ukraine and in the diaspora?

November 21, 2021 Commemoration in Conyers, GA

В неділю, 21 листопада відбудеться Панахида з нагоди дня пам’яті жертв Голодомору, яка розпочнеться після ранковоі літургії в Українській Греко-Католицькій церкві св. Богородиці. Після Панахиди усі гості будуть запрошені до зали на обід та культурно-освітню програму. У зв’язку з особистими обставинами, отець Богдан не впевненний чи зможе провести Панахиду спільно з отцем Володимиром, тому точний час початку панахиди буде оголошено за тиждень до події і буде варіюватись між 11:45 ранку чи 1 год дня.

On Sunday, November 21, the memorial service for Famine victims will be held after the morning liturgy in the Mother of God Ukrainian Catholic Church. After the memorial service, all guests will be invited to the diner for lunch and a cultural program. Due to personal circumstances, Father Bohdan is not sure whether he will be able to hold the Memorial Service together with Father Volodymyr, so the exact time of the Memorial Service will be announced a week before the event and will vary between 11:45 am or 1 p.m.
