2021 Holodomor Memorial Day

 Holodomor Memorial Day is commemorated each year on the fourth Saturday of November as a Day of Remembrance.  It is a day when we remember the millions of Ukrainians who were starved to death in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933.  This man-made famine claimed the lives of millions of victims, many who were just children. 

EUBP schools learn about the Holodomor, to ensure students understand what happened and with awareness, this type of genocide will be prevented from ever happening again. 

Pani Marlis Loughren’s Kindergarten, grades 1 & 2 students and Pani Marianna Cap’s grades 3, 4 & 5 students at Prince Edward School, share their Holodomor themed art work
