The Renaissance Airport Hotel, Philadelphia was the venue for an International HOLODOMOR FORUM on 4-6 October. The full-day conference was organized by the National Holodomor-Genocide Awareness Committee of the USA, the body responsible for the establishment of the permanent National Holodomor Memorial located just steps away from the United States Capital Building on Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, D.C. The conference brought together Holodomor scholars and members of action committees from all across the USA and Canada. Metropolitan Antony of our Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA participated in the Forum as did Metropolitan Boris of the Ukrainian Catholic Church of the USA. A special guest and speaker at the conference was Former Congressman Sandor Levin of Michigan. He was a co-founder of the Ukrainian Caucus of the House of Representatives in 1997 and worked tirelessly until his retirement in 2019 as a forceful supporter and sponsor of the National Memorial, seeing it through to completion. The Congressman is pictured here with the two Metropolitans.
