90th Anniversary Commemoration

90th Anniversary Commemoration

The Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center in Jenkintown will commemorate the 90th anniversary of Holodomor, part of the broader Soviet famine from 1930 to 1933.

During the Holodomor, an estimated 3-5 million Ukrainians died as Joseph Stalin’s Soviet regime withheld food from 1932-1933.

The event will include special presentations by Michael Sawkiw, Jr., Chairman of the U.S. Committee for Ukrainian Holodomor-Genocide Awareness, the “When We Starve” documentary describing the physical, psychologic, and spiritual suffering of people during the Holodomor, a musical performance, a poem, and a food drive.

The food drive’s most needed items are rice, pasta, oatmeal, cereal, and non-perishable items.
