ALMANAC OF UKRAINIAN CANADIAN SERVICEMEN NOW ONLINE
Updated: Feb 4, 2020
For Immediate Release (4 February 2020) - Ottawa
The Almanac of Ukrainian Canadian Servicemen is now available online on the website of the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Foundation.
This Ukrainian-language document (with an English foreword) provides information about many of the thousands of Ukrainian Canadian men and women who volunteered for service overseas with the Canadian armed forces during the Second World War, including photographs, casualty lists, and other details. Produced in 1946 by the Ukrainian Catholic Brotherhood of Canada, this rare document has been restored, and is now being made available in support of the Heroes of Their Day project.
The UCCLF calls upon all Canadians of Ukrainian heritage to remember those who defended our freedom during the Second World War and then helped rescue thousands of Ukrainian Displaced Persons and victims of the war, particularly on May 8, 2020, the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day (V-E Day).
