Head of the UGCC on Holodomor Remembrance Day: Ukrainians have a special mission - to tell themselves and the world: never again!
Holodomor victims are traditionally commemorated every fourth Saturday in November. This year the remembrance falls on November 28.
“Honoring the memory of the victims of the Holodomor-Genocide of the Ukrainian people, the great wound that still hurts every Ukrainian, today, as every year, we pray for the innocently killed millions of sons and daughters of our people. We tell ourselves and the world: ‘we remember, the world recognizes,’” said the Primate.
According to His Beatitude Sviatoslav, the Ukrainian people, having survived the tragedy of starvation, have a special mission today - to talk about preventing famine in the modern world
"Now, in commemorating the victims of the Ukrainian Holodomor, we must pay special attention so that no one next to us goes hungry and no one dies of hunger in the world," asked the Head of the Church.
His Beatitude Sviatoslav called us to remember our pain, but also to act. "Let us feed the hungry so that no one dies of hunger in our time. Remembering these tragic events, let's tell ourselves and the world: never again!"
