Famine of 1946-1947 and the Punative MGB-MVD Apparatus book excerpt, 1994; Ivan Bilas [Ukrainian]
Ukrainian community is deeply concerned
that the Canadian Museum for Human Rights Museum (CMHR) being built in
with taxpayer money will not contain permanent references to the
to the Internment of Ukrainians during WWI. The Ukrainian Canadian
has archived a number of articles on the issue and UCCLA has initiated a petition and campaign to inform Canadian politicians of this inequity. Readers are urged to sign the petition and download and send a postcard.
The second article in Ukrainian is an excerpt from a 1994 book by Ivan Bilas documenting the death toll (including cannibalism) during the 1946-47 famine in Western Ukraine deliberately engineered by Moscow to destroy Ukrainian aspirations for an independent state.

I stayed at the Petro Mohyla Institute from 1959-1965 during my university days in Saskatoon. So I am rather sentimentally attached to the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. The Academy was originally established in 1632 by the Kyiv Metropolitan Petro Mohyla and was a major force in promoting literacy and education in Ukraine. However, after Ukraine’s conquest by Muscovy, education deteriorated and the Academy was finally shut down in 1817 by Czar Alexander I. It was re-established in 1991 as a formally state-run institution with an exceptional degree of autonomy.
In my opinion, academic freedom within Universities is crucial to evolvement of a healthy, democratic and adaptable society. In a treatise on the abolishment of income trusts in Canada zuzak20080101Serfdom.html "Road to Serfdom", I included the following two paragraphs:
“As a person of Ukrainian origin, allow me to utilize the history of the Ukrainian nation as an example of what happens when you allow a foreign nation to control your economy. Around the middle of the seventeenth century, Ukraine was a hetmanate state with its Cossack army fighting for survival against Poles/Lithuania to the west, the Tatars/Turks to the south, the Asiatic hordes to the east and the Muscovites to the north. Despite the difficult politics of the day, Ukrainians were reasonably well off, had a high literacy rate and its leaders were well received in various European capitals.
Unfortunately, in 1654 Ukraine entered a military alliance with Moscow, which has haunted Ukraine to the present day. It was soon dominated by Tsarist Moscow, its Cossack army was exiled to the Kuban region and serfdom was established. In 1711, with Swedish help, Hetman Mazepa attempted to revolt against the Tsarist regime, but was defeated. With the closure of the Kyiv Mohyla Academy and transfer of its professors to Moscow, educational conditions continued to deteriorate resulting in a drastic decrease in the number of schools serving the population. [746 population/school (in 1768), 6750 (in 1775), 17143 (in 1860) until in 1902 more than 83% of Ukrainian children did not go to school.]”
