Press Release

Пам'ятник жертвам Голодмору у Вашінґтон

До відзначення 75-ої річниці українського Голодомору-Ґеноциду, Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI), з допомогою УНІС, представив законопроєкт (H.R. 5289) щодо побудови пам'ятника жертвам Голодомору у Вашінґтоні та зібрав 29 підписів ориґінальних співспонзорів цього законопроєкту. Цей законопроєкт буде представлений на обговорення Палати Представників Конґресу США.

Ukrainian Famine-Genocide Memorial in Washington, DC

As the Ukrainian community prepares to commemorate the 69th anniversary of the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide, the office of Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) has concentrated its efforts on the future. In cooperation with the Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS), Rep. Levin has initiated a bill to erect a memorial to the victims of Ukrainian Famine-Genocide of 1932-1933 in Washington, D.C. The memorial would be dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Famine in 2008. H.R. 5289 has been introduced in the House of Representatives with 29 original co-sponsors (list of current co-sponsors is provided below).

The Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS) urges the Ukrainian American community to contact their representative in Congress and bring this initiative to their attention. Let us do our part to remember the victims of the Ukrainian famine-genocide with a permanent memorial in Washington, D.C. Please write, fax, call, or e-mail your representatives asking them to co-sponsor the Ukrainian Famine-Memorial Bill. A sample letter is provided below for your assistance. Please refer to to contact your Member of Congress via e-mail. Should you have any further questions, please contact UNIS at (202) 547-0018 or e-mail to


The Honorable (name)
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative (name):

I am writing to request your support of H.R. 5289, a bill creating a memorial to the victims of the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide of 1932-1933 in Washington, D.C. The horrific events that resulted in the deaths of more than seven (7) million innocent Ukrainian men, women, in children were deliberately planned by the Soviet government in an effort to suppress the Ukrainians' struggle for freedom and independence. For nearly seven decades, this tragic page of Ukrainian history has been overlooked from the annals of world history.

As a Ukrainian American, I strongly support the creation of the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide Memorial. It is our historical responsibility to create a permanent memorial to remember the atrocities of the past and ensure that such tragedies are not repeated in the future. Construction of this memorial in our nation's capital will serve as a reminder of the horrors inflicted by oppressive/totalitarian governments on its own citizens and will encourage promotion of democracy throughout the world. This worthwhile endeavor of erecting a memorial directly relates to the United States' values and strategic interests around the world. As your constituent, I ask you to support this bill. Thank you in advance for your support.
