The Holodomor was an artificial famine orchestrated by Stalin regime in 1932 and 1933 that was targeted at Soviet Ukraine and other areas with historic ethnic Ukrainian populations. Despite the millions of people who perished, the Holodomor has not been a part of public consciousness in the United States, especially when compared to the Holocaust and the Armenian, Cambodian, Bosnian, or Rwandan genocides. This is not an accident: it is due in good measure to efforts at denial and erasure by the Soviet Union, Russia, and their apologists.

Timed to commemorate the 90th anniversary of this tragic event, this exhibition explores some of the ways in which the Holodomor was depicted during the 20th century, particularly though art. The exhibition consists of an in-person installation at the UHEC Library Gallery in Somerset, NJ, as well as a full-scale online version accessible at scalar.UkrHEC.org/depicting-genocide.
