On-Site Commemoration: Holodomor 90th Anniversary

In 1932-33, millions of Ukrainians starved to death in a man-made famine deliberately engineered by Stalinist regime leaders. Known as the Holodomor, the Ukrainian term for “killing by starvation,” the famine is one of the least known genocides of the 20th century.

Presented in partnership with the Consulate General of Ukraine in Chicago, we invite you to join us for a live conversation between Dr. Andriy Kohut, Director of the Sectoral State Archive of the Security Service of Ukraine, and John Packer, Director of the Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) and Neuberger-Jesin Professor of International Conflict Resolution in the Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa, about this lesser-known history and how Russia’s current war of aggression and atrocity crimes has unearthed genocidal policies against Ukrainians today.

The discussion will be moderated by Jordan Gans-Morse, Associate Professor of Political Science at Northwestern University and the Faculty Director of Northwestern’s Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies (REEES) Program.

Please visit the pop-up Holodomor exhibition in the Museum’s Pritzker Hall of Reflection before the commemoration. The program will begin at 2:30 pm in Goodman Auditorium.

This program is FREE to the public. Registration & more information:
