Background information

In the spring of 2023, the MN legislature passed the K-12 Bill that mandated Holocaust and genocide studies to be embedded in the social studies curriculum. This means that the Holodomor, the genocide of Ukrainians in 1932-33 will become part of the MN Social Studies curriculum. Yet, not very many Minnesotans know about it.
