HOLODOMOR - The Ukrainian Genocide of 1932-33

The North Texas Holodomor Committee prepared the first ever exhibit in North Texas about the Ukrainian Genocide of 1932-33. In partnership with the Dallas Public Library, two large exhibit galleries and various display cases held factual pictures, maps, books and documentation on the Holodomor. Film documentaries were shown at the exhibit on weekends followed by discussions.

 

The Exhibit was at the Dallas Public Library, 4th Floor at 1515 Young Street in Dallas from September 16th through December 31, 2018.  On September 23, 2018 at 2 PM, a traditional Commemoration Event was held and honored the victims of the Holodomor with over 100 guests in attendance. Canned goods were collected during the exhibit and donated to the North Texas Food Bank.

This exhibit was made possible by the generous contribution of the following Sponsors:

The Dallas Public Library

North Texas Holodomor Committee Chair: Chrystya Geremesz

NTHC Committee Members:  Roksolana Karmazyn, Marta Petrash, Daria Zaluckyj, Bob Adkins, Joan Karasevich Schellenberg, John Humen and Sandy Kloberdanz

The NTHC was created to facilitate the commemoration of the 85th Anniversary of The Holodomor. Ongoing projects that foster promoting and educating the public about Ukraine's Genocide is the goal of this group.  

DOCUMENTATION

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, there has been more information released about the Holodomor. Although many of the eyewitnesses have passed, there remains plenty of evidence to provide documentation of this genocide against Ukrainians. Each and every book written or film produced is essential to remember the millions that perished under Russia's dictator, Stalin.  It is a lesson in life we must all never forget and forever hold in promise to respect human life no matter what race, color, religion or gender.

EDUCATIONAL CURRICULUM MATERIAL

One of our goals is to have the Holodomor Facts added to the Texas Educational Curriculum so that our children will learn about this genocide during their international studies.  Until then, here is a link for Educational Resources

 

On November, 2018, former Senator Don Huffines of District 16 sent us a Resolution recognizing the efforts of our committee in presenting the Holodomor Exhibit at the Dallas Public Library, the Commemorative Ceremony held on September 22 and the series of documentaries about the Holodomor.

Senate Resolution 435

In March 2018, Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Richard Durbin (D-IL), co-chairs of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, introduced S.Res.435, a resolution commemorating the 85th Anniversary of the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide (Holodomor) of 1932-33. Similarly, in June 2018, Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) and the co-chairs of the Congressional Ukrainian Caucus - Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), Andy Harris, MD (R-MD), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), introduced an analogous Holodomor resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives - H.Res.931.

The Holodomor resolutions are a very important issue for Ukraine and the Ukrainian American community.  For decades, our community has been working arduously to bring awareness and achieve recognition of the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian nation. On October 3rd, the hard work of our Ukrainian American communities paid off and Resolution 435 passed unanimously.
