Dr. Lubomyr Luciuk, RMCC Professor: The Battle of Hill 70 memorial

Recently, Dr. Lubomyr Luciuk, RMCC Professor participated in a fund-raising event at the Royal Canadian Military Institute in Toronto.

Thanks to Professor Luciuk’s efforts and the generous support of the Ukrainian Canadian community, $1.5 million has been raised in support of the Battle of Hill 70 project, ensuring that the central pathway at this Great War battlefield will be named in honour of Corporal Filip Konowal.

This Ukrainian Canadian soldier’s valour during that battle was recognized with a Victoria Cross, now on permanent display at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa.

The Battle of Hill 70 memorial will be officially unveiled near Lens, France on 8 April 2017.

Dr Luciuk is currently completing work on a trilingual (English, Ukrainian, French) book, A Canadian Hero: Corporal Filip Konowal, VC and the Battle of Hill 70.
