Catholic students in Regina got the chance to view ‘Holodomor: Voices of Survivors‘, an award winning new documentary on Monday.
It was made by Canadian filmmaker Ariadna Ochrymovych and it features interviews with Ukrainian-Canadian survivors of the famine genocide engineered by Russian dictator Joseph Stalin in 1932-33.
Ochrymovych conducted these interviews in major cities across the country.
She says it’s important for the general public to know about what happened. “Most Ukrainians know that this has happened. What is important is to get it out to non Ukrainians.”
Ariadna received the Research Award at the Yorkton Film Festival.
Students screened the film at Holy Family Parish, Miller Comprehensive High School and M. C. O’Neill High School.
