Documentary Film: Harvest of Despair (1983)Saturday March 23, 2019
2:00 PM until 4:30 PM
"Harvest of Despair: The Man-made Famine of 1932-33 in Ukraine" documents the Ukrainian terror famine of 1932-33 that caused the death of seven million people in Ukraine. 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 widespread Ukrainian resistance to Moscow's policies of collectivization and cultural destruction in Ukraine. A powerful film, "Harvest of Despair" provides rare insight into one of the 20th century's least-known but most vicious genocides.
The program will include an introduction of the film by Dr. Yuri Mischenko, a reading of the Recollections of Holodomor Survivor Nina Pinczuk Kowbasniuk, and a Q&A at the end of the film.
"Harvest of Despair: The Man-made Famine of 1932-33 in Ukraine" (55 minutes) is Directed by Slavko Nowytski, (c)1983, International Historic Films, Inc.
Presented by the Ukrainian National Women's League of America, Branch 98.
