The Holodomor – A Look Back at Stalin’s 1932-1933 Genocide in the Ukraine

Please join us for an insightful lecture on the 1932-1933 Holodomor Genocide by Yale Professor Timothy D. Snyder. The Holodomor is the little-known genocide in which millions of Ukrainians were starved to death on the orders of Josef Stalin. The unnecessary and artificial “famine” was brought about by Stalin’s draconian harvest regulations. The measures were intended to pressure and punish Ukrainians refusing to relinquish their family farms to the Soviet farm collectivization plan. The country was considered the “breadbasket of Europe” and key to Stalin’s plans to feed the citizens of the Soviet Union.

Dr. Snyder is an author and historian specializing in the history of Central and Eastern Europe, and the Holocaust. He is the Richard C. Levin Professor of History at Yale University and a Permanent Fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna. Snyder is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Committee on Conscience of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
