On the 80th anniversary of the man-made famine in Ukraine, SC will be showing the documentary called, "Harvest of Despair", on Nov. 14, at 6:30 p.m., in Fahy 236.
This film documents the Ukrainian terror famine of 1932–33, which caused the deaths of millions of people. Using interviews with survivors and scholars to supplement rare photographic evidence, it established that the terror famine was deliberately created by the Soviet Government as part of Stalin's decades-long effort to destroy the Ukrainian peasantry, who resisted the forced collectivization of their lands. Since its original release, it has received many international awards (including an Academy Award nomination) and has been featured on William F. Buckley's Firing Line program on the PBS television network. A powerful film "Harvest of Despair" provides rare insight into one of last century's least-known but most vicious genocides. At the time of the appearance of this film, not only was the famine unknown in the West, but the USSR government continued to deny that such a famine had ever occurred.
All are welcome!
Slavic refreshments will be served!
