Statement by UCCLA on International Holocaust Remembrance Day 

The Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association (UCCLA)  issued the following statement to mark the United Nations’ annual International Day of Commemoration to honour the victims of the Holocaust:

“As we commemorate the solemn anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, we remember  the millions of Jews, Roma, Poles, Ukrainians, Russians, Christians, homosexuals, disabled persons and others enslaved or murdered by the Nazis,” said the UCCLA’s chairman, R. W. Zakaluzny.

“Let us not forget that the Holocaust was not only a crime against specific communities but was also a crime against all of humanity. The UCCLA reaffirms our commitment to ensuring that all genocides, including the Shoah, are commemorated equally in the taxpayer-funded Canadian Museum for Human Rights, in Winnipeg.”
