Holodomor 90: From Stalin’s Famine to Putin’s Missiles

Holodomor 90: From Stalin’s Famine to Putin’s Missiles

We invite you to join us on campus to commemorate the 90th anniversary of Holodomor, a man-made famine that took millions of innocent lives in Ukraine from 1932 to 1933. The term “Holodomor” translates to “death by hunger” or “killing by hunger,” corresponding to the genocidal policy engineered by Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. Once the world discovered the truth, the international community vowed: “Never again”. However, history is repeating itself today. The tactics and tools might look different, but Putin’s motive remains the same – the erasure of Ukraine and its people.

Our keynote speaker, Minister-Counsellor at the Embassy of Ukraine in Canada Mr. Andrii Bukvych, is joining us to discuss the legacy of Holodomor and its impact on the current fight of Ukraine for its independence. Additionally, historical and academic context will be discussed by Drs. Dominique Marshall, Milana Nikolko, and Jeff Sahadeo.

The event is co-organized by the Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (EURUS),the Carleton Ukrainian Students Club and the Embassy of Ukraine to Canada.

Registration is required for this event. Please register using the form on the bottom of this link.
