Zuzak GRC Report; Wed., November 05, 2008

(1) Holodomor Awareness Week 16-23 November 2008:
The Ukrainian Canadian Congress, Edmonton Branch, is sponsoring two events as follows:

Panel Discussion on Holodomor Denial
4:30 PM, Thursday, 20Nov2008
University of Alberta SUB Stage 

Holodomor Memorial Service
12:30 PM, Saturday, 22Nov2008
[Because of wind damage to the skylight panels in Edmonton City Hall, it is possible that the venue will have to be changed to a different location.]

Most Ukrainian communities around the world are planning events to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Holodomor -- the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide of 1932-1933 during the week of 16/23Nov2008. All churches are expected to perform a Panakhyda for the 10 million victims on Sunday 23Nov2008.

Please make an extra effort to attend these events and encourage your extended family and friends to do so. When we pray for the souls of the 10 million dead, we are also nurturing our own souls and that of the Ukrainian people, as well as independent Ukraine.

(3) Rybalski’s Son:
by Orest S. Talpash
Trafford Publishing (2008)
ISBN 978-1-4251-7461-3

Related short stories describe events buffeting the Rybalski family during twelve decades, from smuggling in 1896 in the "Old Country" to coming-of-age issues in 2008 in Edmonton, Canada. Taken together, these stories record the collective memory – and the fading of memory – of a family's history.
