Svoboda Press releases UNA Almanac for 2005

PARSIPPANY, N.J. - The Almanac of the Ukrainian National Association for 2005, dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II, was released at the beginning of the year by the Svoboda Press.

The 272-page Ukrainian-language book includes a foreword by UNA President Stefan Kaczaraj; its editor is Petro Chasto, a member of the editorial staff of the Svoboda weekly.

Though the bulk of the almanac's materials deal with the subject of the second world war, the volume also contains sections on ethnography, ecology and American life, the latter aimed at members of the Fourth Wave of immigrants from Ukraine to the United States, under the heading "America Close Up."

In addition, the almanac includes articles about fascinating personages such as choral conductor Alexander Koshetz, writer Maksym Rylsky, and poet and Soviet political prisoner Vasyl Stus.

Rounding out the book are articles on health and snippets of advice on proper usage of the Ukrainian language. The language articles are the work of the renowned Anatole Wowk, whose writings on the topic once were a popular regular feature in Svoboda, the UNA's Ukrainian-language newspaper.

The UNA Almanac was mailed out to all subscribers of Svoboda. Copies of the almanac are available for $15 (postage included) by writing to: Svoboda Administration, Subscription Department, P.O. Box 280, 2200 Route 10, Parsippany, NJ 07054; credit card orders may be placed by calling (973) 292-9800, ext. 3042.
