Holodomor Exhibit at North York Civic Centre starting tomorrow

From the League of Ukrainian Canadians:

Media Advisory: Holodomor Exhibit at the North York Civic Centre

The exhibit, which is sponsored by the League of Ukrainian Canadians and League of Ukrainian Canadian Women, will be on display at the North York Civic Centre from 7:30am on Nov 10 to 3:00pm on Nov 23, 2008.

This year, Ukrainians worldwide are commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Ukrainian Famine of 1932-33, in which as many as 10 million Ukrainians, almost half of them children, perished through forced starvation.

In Canada, the Ukrainian Canadian community began to mark the 75th anniversary by displaying the exhibit Holodomor: Genocide by Famine at Toronto City Hall in April of this year, and by sponsoring the journey throughout Canada of the International Remembrance Flame.

The exhibit Holodomor: Genocide by Famine was produced by the League of Ukrainian Canadians in cooperation with the Kyiv Memorial Society in Ukraine.

The exhibit includes 101 panels ranging from opposition to collectivization; to why the genocide was organized; to how the genocide was organized, including the blacklisting of villages, ban on travel, and export abroad; to why the Holodomor was indeed a genocide. On behalf of the League of Ukrainian Canadians and our partner the League of Ukrainian Canadian Women, we invite you to view our most revealing exhibit on the Holodomor.
