Red Famine - Stalin’s War on Ukraine

calendarclock - (GMT)

Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine begins in 1917, with the Ukrainian revolution and the Ukrainian national movement that challenged Bolshevik rule. It ends in the present, with a discussion of the ongoing politics of memory in Ukraine.  Red Famine bears witness to a genocide that killed nearly four million people, destroyed the aspirations of Ukraine for two generations and has real echoes in the politics of the present.
