Zuzak GRC Report; Wed., September 07, 2011

(1) Holodomor/Genocide: http://www.willzuzak.ca/tp/holodomor/holodomor.html

Measured museum debate welcome  Winnipeg Free Press, 06Sep2011; Dan Lett
The CMHR pulls an Oliver Twist: Please sirs, we want some more -- money  Blogspot, 29Aug2011; blackrod
Memory becomes a minefield at Canada's Museum for Human Rights  Globe and Mail, 20Aug2011; Ira Basen  [W.Z., comments]
Gail Asper's latest revelations about the out-of-control spending on the CMHR  Blogspot, 27Jul2011; blackrod
Who didn't pay theit taxes again? The Canadian Museum for Human Rights  Blogspot, 11Jul2011; blackrod

Blackrod continues exposing the financial shenanigans associated with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

The long rambling article by CBC employee, Ira Basen, on the CMHR generated a myriad of comments from readers, some of which are appended at the bottom of the article. In answer to Mr. Basen’s rhetorical question as to what the government can do if the expectations of Canadians are not met, my answer is “Fire Stuart Murray as CEO and remove James Moore as Heritage Minister”. Although Dan Lett of the Winnipeg Free Press continues supporting the Asper vision of the CMHR, the vast majority of the comments are critical.

(2) Ukrainophobia: http://www.willzuzak.ca/tp/ukrainophobia/ukrainophobia.html
Is HURI still out there?  ePoshta | 03Sep2011 | Myron Kuropas  [W.Z.]
In Defense of the Ukrainian People  UAMuzik, 02Sep2011; Vasyl Pawlowsky [W.Z.]

Having returned to Canada after an eight year stint in Ukraine, Vasyl Pawlowsky is intimately familiar with the intricacies of Ukrainian politics. In this blog, he highlights the sad plight of Yulia Tymoshenko and especially Yuri Lutsenko. It appears that Yuri Lutsenko may be following in the footsteps of Vasyl Stus, who died a martyr’s death on 04Sep1985 in the Soviet forced labour camp for political prisoners Perm-36. To get on Mr. Pawlowsky’s blog mailing list simply type in and “submit” your Email address on his blog site. I suspect that you will always get a good read.

Myron Kuropas outlines the history of the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute (HURI) and laments its decline in relevance for Ukrainian issues. Perhaps Dr. Kuropas could do a similar analysis on the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies (CIUS).

(3) John Demjanjuk: http://www.willzuzak.ca/fc/2011/2011.html
Dr. Ulrich Busch's Speech -- Human Rights -- Kyiv Ukrainian World Congress, 20Aug2011, Ulrich Busch

As the lead lawyer for John Demjanjuk at his 209-2011 Munich trial, Ulrich Busch emphasizes that in the 1986-1988 Jerusalem trial  four countries -- Moscow, the United States, Israel and Poland -- had all the evidence that John Demjanjuk was not Ivan the Terrible. In Munich, the German prosecutors and court overturned all the precedents established over the past 70 years in the prosecution of “Nazi war criminals”.

On 19Jul2011, the Demjanjuk defense launched court action against the OSI in front of Judge Dan Aaron Polster asking that the citizenship revocation and deportation ruling be vacated. (See links in green below.) Links to the 22 Exhibits A to V are now available via the XoXoL website:
