My Wooden Suitcase: A Memoir

Edmonton: Huculak Chair of Ukrainian Culture and Ethnography in the Kule Centre for Ukrainian and Canadian Folklore at the University of Alberta 

2011

Dr. Huculak’s memoir tells of his struggles as a young man in a war ravaged Ukraine, life in the post-war camps, the journey to Canada with his family and his only possession – his wooden suitcase. It also documents his life as a young immigrant to Canada, how he established a successful pharmaceutical business – Medical Pharmacies, and his deep engagement in Ukrainian organizations throughout Canada and Ukraine.
