An upcoming panel discussion on the role of the media in covering and uncovering the truth about the 1930s Holodomor famine-genocide in Ukraine has been rescheduled.
The event at Winnipeg’s Canadian Museum for Human Rights was originally planned for Wednesday, January 21, but has since been changed to February 4.
The event will also feature the first Canadian showing of a travelling exhibit from the national Holodomor memorial museum in Ukraine, courtesy of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC), Manitoba Provincial Council.
Guest speakers will be Jaroslaw Balan of the Canadian Institute for Ukrainian Studies at the University of Alberta, and Dr. Jeremy Maron, lead CMHR researcher-curator for the Museum’s “Breaking the Silence” gallery.
The discussion will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Bonnie & John Buhler Hall.
