Holodomor: Voices of Survivors

Saturday May 28, 2016 – 9:20AM – Ravine Room

Synopsis
Survivors, now living in Canada, recount the horrors of living through the little known Ukrainian Famine/Genocide, engineered by Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin in 1932-33.

Over five million people died, as brigades forcibly confiscated all livestock, grain and foodstuffs; the Ukrainian elite was decimated and hundreds of thousands who opposed collectivization were sent to the Gulag while the world turned a blind eye.

Journalists were barred from Ukraine and borders were closed. Fearing for their lives no one spoke of this atrocity until 1991 when Ukraine gained independence. But the consequences of this genocide continue to reverberate today as Ukraine struggles to become a true democracy. Illustrated with rare archival footage, photos and original
drawings.
