Remember the Holodomor!

Saturday, November 26, 2011


On the 26th of November, Ukrainians, Catholics or Orthodox will light a candle remembering those who died during the days when Stalin neglected the agricultural sector in Ukraine and caused widespread hunger that killed 7-10 million Ukrainians in 1932-1933.

I would like you to pray for the souls of those who perished during the Holodomor. Please light a candle in memory of them. You may do it in your parishes, chapels or even your respective homes.

From the ERCF Admin and Contributors that may the souls of those who perished in the Great Ukrainian Famine of 1932-1933 rest in peace and may the Great Famine remain as a painful history not only in Ukraine, but also to the world.

In the Ukrainian diaspora, a Panikhida, a Requiem service is usually held to commemorate the Anniversary of the Holodomor in Canada and in the United States. For over the years, Ukrainians in Canada and in the US remembered this horrible event and built monuments to remember their loved ones who died in the Great Famine in 1932-1933.

Memory eternal! Vichnayat Pamyat +
