Manitoba government recognizes 85th anniversary of Holodomor

The province recognized the 85th anniversary of the end of the Holodomor with a commemoration Thursday at the Legislative Building.

The Holodomor, a famine and genocide that killed millions in Ukraine between 1932-33, is of special importance to Manitoba due to the province’s large Ukrainian population.

The province is among the jurisdictions around the world that recognizes the genocide each year on Ukrainian Famine and Genocide (Holodomor) Memorial Day.
