HOLODOMOR - Ukrainian Genocide of 1932-33 Exhibit For Public Awareness

Description

Please join the Dallas Public Library and the North Texas Holodomor Committee on Sunday September 23, at 2:00 PM as we commemorate the 85th Anniversary of the Holodomor: The Ukrainian Genocide of 1932-33 through an exhibit for public awareness. The Holodomor was an artificial famine ordered by Russian Dictator, Joseph Stalin, who vowed to crush the Ukrainian resistance against Soviet collectivization, punish ideas of freedom and control all farmland. All the grain that was harvested was sold beyond Ukraine's borders or stored in locked containers to rot. It is estimated that over 10 million lives were lost in just over a year. STANDING EXHIBIT DATES: 16 September – 9 November 2018 Open During Library Hours Documentaries and film screenings on the Holodomor will be scheduled at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library on weekends. Canned goods will be collected during the Commemorative Event and Film showings with the proceeds donated to the North Texas Food Bank. Give generously!
