HOLODOMOR COMMEMORATION - FULL CAPACITY ATTENDANCE

19.11.08




The commemoration of the Holodomor on Saturday will take place before a capacity audience of 2000 people.  There are no more tickets available for the event at Westminster Central Hall. 

Among the diplomats and dignitories attending will be two survivers of the Holodomor, the Very Rev Protopresbiter Fr Mykhailo Hutorny and Maria Volkova.  Also attending will be the relatives of two extremely brave British journalists, Malcolm Muggeridge and Gareth Jones, who risked their own lives in reporting on the horrors of the Holodomor.

Organisers of the event are delighted by the response and are now having to turn people away due to lack of places. 

Those without tickets are welcome to take part in the Panakhyda Service which will follow on from a procession to the memorial to Innocent Victims of Oppression, Violence and War, situated in the courtyard of Westminster Abbey near the Great West Door.  The procession will commence at 4.00 pm and the Panakhyda Service at 4.15 pm.  After the Service the Ambassador of Ukraine, HE Ihor Kharchenko, together with Oksana Bilozir and the AUGB Chief Executive will lay a single tribute on behalf of Ukraine and the whole community, followed by children placing 75 lighted candles.
