Cleveland State University faculty, staff, and students and the general public are invited to attend a free screening of Holodomor: Ukraine's Genocide of 1932-1933 (80-minute documentary feature film by Bobby Liegh).

Holodomor claimed more lives than were lost on every battlefield combined during World War I. 7-10 million people, including 3 million children, perished in 17 months. This film aims to tell their story.

In 1932-33, Ukraine, the breadbasket of the Soviet Union and Europe, had bountiful crops of grain, yet its people were dying of starvation. In order to crush the will of the independent-minded Ukrainian peasants and secure collectivization of all Ukrainian lands, Joseph Stalin ordered an army of ruthless, well-fed Communist Party activists to confiscate all harvested grain and seize all the foodstuffs in the villages. As a result of this genocidal decree, by the end of 1933 nearly 25 percent of the Ukrainian population - up to 10 million people, including three million children - had perished.
In the face of terror, Ukrainians had little possibility of escaping their horrific fate to create another life elsewhere. Travel was banned for Ukrainians keeping them confined in a prison of starvation within their own villages. To this day, the Russian government still denies this genocide ever occurred, perpetuating "the biggest lie, best kept secret."

Cosponsored by the United Ukrainian Organizations of Ohio and the Cleveland State University Michael Schwartz Library.
