Mr. Jones Film Screening

In the years 1932–1933, the communist totalitarian regime committed the crime of genocide against the Ukrainian people. Today, its successor, the racist regime, is trying to commit genocide on Ukrainian soil again.

The purpose of the crime was to destroy the Ukrainian people as a national group. 90 years after the Holodomor genocide, the Russians are again using genocide methods against Ukrainians to destroy our identity, culture, and language – to destroy the Ukrainian nation as such. To this end, the occupiers are mass-murdering, deporting Ukrainians, and destroying cities.

The film is fictional but based on real events. A bit of our history so that everyone understands why we are now fighting so hard for our independence.

Al Zubkovich, the leader of the Nordic Ukraine Forum, will give a brief introduction to the film.

With support from Uppsala Konstnärsklubb, the Embassy of Ukraine in Sweden, the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance, Ukrainian Culture Center in Stockholm.

The text describes the two genocides that the Ukrainian people have suffered at the hands of their Russian neighbors. The first, Holodomor, was a man-made famine that killed millions of Ukrainians in the early 1930s. The second, which is ongoing, is a war of aggression that has killed thousands of Ukrainians and displaced millions more.

The text also describes the film “Holodomor: A Ukrainian Tragedy”. The film is a fictional account of the Holodomor, but it is based on real events. The film is intended to educate people about the Holodomor and to help them understand why the Ukrainian people are fighting so hard for their independence today.

The text concludes by announcing a screening of the film in Uppsala, Sweden. The screening is free, but registration is required. The screening will be introduced by Al Zubkovich, the leader of the Nordic Ukraine Forum.

Admission is free, but registration is required due to limited seating.
