'Be kind. Save Somalia' urges Ukrainian genocidal famine Holodomor survivor

Stefan Horlatsch survived the Holodomor as a 12-year-old boy.

Horlatsch's family had their land in the Zaporizhia region of eastern Ukraine, livestock and grain forcibly seized by Soviet authorities during the famine-genocide. Eleven members of his family perished.

The retired teacher from High Park pleaded for the world to offer its compass on in the form of immediate aid to Somalia.

"Ten-million Ukrainians perished. Ten million," Horlatsch said. "That is the population of Canada at the time. As a survivor, I say to the world: 'Be kind. Save Somalia.'"
