We Need Your Help! Sign the Petition!
Help us get the word “Holodomor” included in most English dictionaries!
Please help us by signing the petition that will help the Ukrainian word “Holodomor” be recognized in major English dictionaries. This is important for the word “Holodomor” itself means death inflicted by starvation” or“extermination by hunger” and to this day Russia continues to deny this genocide.

UKRAINE REMEMBERS – THE WORLD ACKNOWLEDGES
We, Ukrainians in Alberta, Canada, joined the international community in commemorating the anniversary of the Holodomor-Genocide in Ukraine of 1932-33, so that together we can spread the truth about the Holodomor, and ensure acknowledgement of the Holodomor as an act of genocide against the Ukrainian nation. In Soviet Ukraine, the region known as Europes breadbasket, 7 – 10 millions of lives were suddenly eradicated by starvation, one of the most ruthless forms of torture and death.
Let us remember, thus ensuring that similar tragedies are never repeated!
