This year, the co-organizers of the annual Holodomor commemoration in New York City on the 3rd Saturday of November advise our community not to travel to St. Patrick’s Cathedral this November 21.

Case reporting of COVID-19 continues to spread in New York City with increases recent hospitalizations concerning local authorities enough to begin limiting non-essential gatherings in certain neighborhoods. 

We encourage you to instead watch the livestream at 2:00pm EST from St. Patrick's Cathedral to mark the 87th year of Holodomor commemoration:

In lieu of a mass gathering with remarks by elected officials, Metropolitan Antony, Prime Hierarch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, and Bishop Paul Chomnycky, Eparch of the Ukrainian Catholic Diocese of Stamford, will lead a panakhyda (the solemn Ukrainian liturgical service for the repose of the departed) at the cathedral without the usual masses of priests from the surrounding parishes con-celebrating, nor the revered sound of the Ukrainian Chorus “Dumka” of New York singing the responses. 

UCCA and the rest of our event organizers look forward to once again organizing this solemn commemoration on November 20, 2021, marking the the 88th year since the crime of the Holodomor was committed against the Ukrainian people.

During these unprecedented times due to COVID-19, members of the Syracuse Branch of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA) and the U.S. Committee for Ukrainian Holodomor-Genocide Awareness, gathered mindfully on November 14 to commemorate this 87th anniversary of the 1932-1933 man-made famine-genocide in Ukraine, known as the Holodomor. 
This year marks the 87th anniversary of the Holodomor, a man-made famine in Soviet Ukraine in 1932 and 1933 that killed millions of Ukrainians. It is also known as the Terror-Famine and Famine-Genocide in Ukraine, and sometimes referred to as the Great Famine or The Ukrainian Genocide of 1932–33.

On November 8, 2020, an outdoor service  organized by UCCA's Long Island Chapter, and with the attendance of the Consul General of Ukraine in New York, was held at Eisenhower Park in Westbury, NY, for the repose of the souls of millions of Ukrainians who died of an imposed starvation by Soviet Russia in Ukraine during 1932–1933. They will not be forgotten!
On November 19, 2020, the Holodomor Research and Education Consortium presented their annual Holodomor lecture in Toronto, Last Stand: The Third All-Ukrainian Conference of the Communist Party of Ukraine and the Holodomor, given by Canadian historian Dr. Bohdan Klid.

In 2020, Ukraїner and the National Museum of the Holodomor-Genocide carried out a joint expedition to search for witnesses of the Holodomor. The team recorded more than 100 interviews and discovered dozens previously unknown mass graves. 9 multimedia experiences were created that tell stories from Holodomor witnesses of 1932–1933, dispel lies about it, and investigate the consequences of the tragedy for our society today.

On November 27, 2020, the International Coordinating Committee for Holodomor Awareness and Recognition of the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) will hold a virtual commemoration of the 87th anniversary of the Holodomor and present a unique project – the Network of Descendants.

Additional commemorations, memorial services, academic conferences and educational lectures will be taking place on every continent, in almost every Ukrainian community around the globe. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many of these will be available online for the first time:

The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), which unites and advocates in the name of nearly 30 fraternal, educational, religious, cultural, veterans and humanitarian organizations in the Ukrainian American community, joins with the U.S. Committee for Ukrainian Holodomor Genocide Awareness, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC), and the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) in asking our community and all friends of Ukraine to sign the petition to get the word Holodomor included in all major English-language dictionaries.
