The CMHR stirs up hatred and divisiveness Blogspot, 08Aug2013; blackrod
Blackrod criticizes Grand Chief Murray Clearsky for comparing the
colonial experience ofNative Canadians with the Jewish Holocaust.
- Andriana Luhovy reports on how she helped her father, Yurij Luhovy,
to film "Genocide Revealed". She discusses her present activities with
Ukrainian youth and her plans for the future.
- In the National Post, Jonathan Kay pokes fun at the proposed CMHR restaurant (perhaps featuring "Sausage a la Holodomor")
and Graeme Hamilton discusses how the selectivity of the contents of the CMHR is causing divisiveness within Canadian society.
- Share the Story: Commemorating
the 80th anniversary of the Holodomor
is being archived at http://www.sharethestory.ca/
"The Ukrainian Famine-Genocide 1932-33 -- the Holodomor -- was a
deliberate act to eliminate a nation. On these pages, Holodomor
survivors tell their stories. They share their experiences during that
horrific time in history with the hope of bringing us closer to
understanding this often forgotten atrocity. They share their
experiences with the hope that they are contributing to a better
world. Join us in sharing the story of the Holodomor."
- These are short 3 minute video excerpts of interviews of 80 survivors
that highlight various aspects of the Holodomor from a personal
perspective. Transcripts of these videos are provided in the English,
Ukrainian and Russian languages.
- There have been no additions this month.
(3) John Demjanjuk:
prosecutors' office to pursue charges against former Auschwitz guards
Cleveland Plain Dealer, 03Sep2013; Associated Press,  Rashke
- Pimps for the Holocaust Industry continue promoting their
favorite subject a la John Demjanjuk, but ignore the crimes perpetrated
by the so-called "Allies" during WWII. I ask a question: "When will
Thomas Walther, Ulrich Maas, Rebecca Whittmann, other German
prosecutors and Germans, in general, develop a moral courage and self
respect to pray for the souls of their dead at Bitburg Cemetery?"

between OUN-UPA and Germany cdvrua, 17Dec2012; Ivan
and 43:09, Ukr/English summary]
- The 1.5 hour lecture in Ukrainian by Ivan Patrylyak outlines the
activities of OUN/UPA from the 1920s to the end of the German
occupation of Ukraine during the summer of 1944. For English-language
readers, we present a summary of the contents. To understand the very
complicated situation in which the Ukrainian independence movement
operated, one must differentiate between several regions: Subcarpathia
as part of Czechoslovakia from 1922 to 1939, the Zakerzonia strip west
of the Bug and Sjan Rivers, Halychyna/Volyn which was part of Poland
from 1922 to 1939 and Central/Eastern Ukraine which was incorporated
within the Soviet Union from 1922 to 1991. Furthermore, during the
German occupation Subcarpathia, Zakerzonia and Halychyna were under the
General Gouvernment administrative structure; whereas Volyn and
Central/Eastern Ukraine were in the much more brutal Reichscommissariat
Ukraine administrative structure headed by the Ukrainophobe Eric Koch.
- The President of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, emphasizes that
throughout its history -- as the Tsarist Russian Empire, the Bolshevik
Russian Empire, the Russian Federation and the proposed Eurasian Union
-- Russian Empire rulers in the Kremlin/Moscow have always deliberately
fomented instability, division, hatred and wars amongst the peoples in
its occupied territories (and in neighbouring countries) so as to
preclude the development of stable democratic nation states, which
could/would develop friendly relations amongst themselves. From the
Ukrainian perspective, this is exactly the policy Vladimir Putin is
implementing in Ukraine at the present time.
(5) Rosenberg Diary: http://www.willzuzak.ca/tp/hi/kempner20130610RosenbergDiary.html
kempner20130610RosenbergDiary.html The Alfred Rosenberg Diary
As explained in the 7 archived articles, the Alfred Rosenberg Diary was
recently "discovered" by a collaborative effort involving the
Department of Justice (OSI), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) of
U.S. Immigrations and Custom Enforcement (ICE) and the United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM). After the Nurnberg War Crimes Trials
from 1946-1949 in which Robert Kempner acted as prosecutor, he
criminally stole and hid this Diary until his death in 1993. Others
conspired to keep the Diary hidden for another 20 years until 2013.
would hope and expect German legal scholars to either demand that this
Diary be returned to Germany and/or that high-resolution color images
of each page be made available for study by experts and the general
public. Furthermore, since Alfred Rosenberg was deeply involved in the
Ukrainian colonial effort from 1941 to 1944, it is crucial that
scholars and authorities in Ukraine, as well as the Ukrainian Diaspora,
demand access to the Rosenberg Diary or, at least, to the
high-resolution color images of these 400 pages.
