Humphrey School of Public Affairs
November 16, 2023 - 1:00 pm CST
- 2:00 pm

Join us for an eye-opening event that explores the Holodomor’s history, its designation as genocide, and its impact on Ukraine and its people today. 

This event is virtual only. Please register here.


This event will provide insights into the history of the Holodomor, its recognition as genocide, and how the denial of this historical event, along with the absence of accountability, can have implications for Ukraine and its people today. We’ll also discuss Russia’s actions in Ukraine, including the use of food as a weapon and violations of international laws. Panelists will reflect on the implications.
