Mennonites and Ukrainians under Stalin

Mennonites and Ukrainians under Stalin
Our Human Rights, Lost and Found

Join us for an evening of powerful and inspiring discussion as two Canadian communities come together. Mennonites and Ukrainians experienced extreme human rights violations in the 1920s and 30s under the Stalinist dictatorship of the former Soviet Union. The State confiscated lands and property, removed religious freedoms, imprisoned, banished and murdered many Individuals, and committed genocide against the Ukrainian nation in
1932-33. Many Mennonites and Ukrainians have found a new home in Canada. Come explore their respective journeys toward freedom and safety.

Speakers: Dr. Myroslav Shkandrij, Dr. Peter Letkemann, Dr. Colin Neufeldt, Margaret Friesen and the Friesen-Kuzmenko Family
