Canadian Museum for Human Rights hosts book launch in Winnipeg for Kuryliw’s Holodomor in Ukraine
On the 22 May 2019, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) hosted a book launch for HREC Director of Education Valentina Kuryliw’s recent publication titled, Holodomor in Ukraine, The Genocidal Famine 1932-1933: Learning Materials for Teachers and Students. It was held in the main foyer outside of the gift shop between 4 and 6pm to some 80 attendees present, among them community leaders, teachers and one Holodomor survivor from the Winnipeg community.
In addition, because of the book launch, CBC Manitoba Radio’s own host Ismaila Alfa interviewed Valentina Kuryliw about the Holodomor and her family for his Up to Speed show, which aired 22 May at 3:30pm in Winnipeg. Isamaila was well prepared and expressed interest in how and why a genocide like the Holodomor occurred and what affect it had on Kuryliw’s family as a whole.
