This book contains a collection of 130 poems written by Dr. Rev. Iwaskiw during his lifetime, and selected articles as well, on Ukrainian Baptist history.  On page 4-8 is a biography of his life written by Dr. Rev. V. Domashovetz which needs to be translated into English.

Peter interviewed Dr. Iwaskiw for several hours in August 2009, at OCELA, the Ukrainian Bible Camp near Peterborough, Ontario.  During this interview, he asked Dr. Iwaskiw to recite one of his favorite poems, which he did and it was on the life of MOSES.  As Peter followed along in his book, [this poem is found on pages 126-137], he was amazed at the memory Dr. Iwaskiw still had in his 86th year, reciting a poem that he wrote 51 years ago, in 1958, considering that it was 11 pages long.

This poem recitation and interview, Peter hopes to make available in the near future when the video section is set up on this website.  If you wish to support this Ukrainian Baptist Heritage Centre website through your donations, this will allow us to pay for the monthly expenses associated with listening to audio segments (music and interviews) and viewing video segments as well.
