To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Holodomor, the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Foundation is supporting the publication of a series of essays by leading journalists, public intellectuals and scholars titled: Holodomor: Reflections on the Great Famine of 1932-1933 in Soviet Ukraine (edited by L. Y. Luciuk, The Kashtan Press, 2008).
The goal of this campaign is to send copies of this book to major international repositories as well as public and university libraries, in a bid to make information about the causes and consequences of the Holodomor available to a wide audience.
Holodomor-denial continues: Only if books exist on library shelves worldwide can we begin to undo the disinformation that exists about the Holodomor.
Donations are tax-deductible; income tax receipts will be issued. If you are able to donate $250 or more, you or the library of your choice will receive a copy of this important new book.
Please make your cheque payable to:
The Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Foundation
48 Wood Crest Close SW
Calgary, AB, T2W 3P9.
Donations can also be made by credit card by visiting: www.canadahelps.org.
Your donation will help us remember the Holodomor's victims and educate the world about this Soviet crime against humanity.
