Every November, Ukrainians all over the world remember the Famine-Genocide we now call “Holodomor” that took the lives of millions of innocent Ukrainians in the winter of 1932-33.

Ukrainians Give Back to Commemorate Holodomor

It’s becoming a tradition. On Saturday, November 11th, we came together to make 400 varenyky, and helped feed about 85 unsheltered people with other volunteers from Heer to Serve. Thank you to all the helpers, and Holy Spirit Catholic Church, for helping us commemorate the victims of Holodomor. May their memory be eternal.

Зібралися в суботу і наробили 400 вареників. Наші вареники нагодували приблизно 85 безпритулкових людей, помагаючи благодійні організації Heer to Serve. Дякуєм всім помічникам, і церкві Holy Spirit Catholic Church що помогли нам вшанувати пам’ять жертв Голодомору. Вічна їм память.

Film Screenings about Holodomor

UCAO is grateful to Denison University for helping us begin our 90 year Anniversary Commemoration of Holodomor this November with a film screening of Mr Jones, one of our favorite films to address the famine-genocide unleashed upon Ukraine in 1932-33. To accompany the screening, there was a panel discussion featuring: Dr. Julia Kolchinsky Dasbach, English, Dr. Oksana Grabova, Global Commerce, and Dr. Zarrina Juraqolova, Economics. This event was hosted by Dr. Charles St-Georges (Modern Languages), in coordination with the Ukrainian Cultural Association of Ohio.
The Center for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies hosted a screening of The Guide (2014) as part of the Stand With Ukraine Through Film Initiative. Professor Marianna Klochko (Sociology, Ohio State Marion) provided background information on kobzars and lead a post-film Q&A.
