HOLODOMOR - The Ukrainian Genocide of 1932-33
Over 10 Million Died
The term Holodomor (death by hunger, in Ukrainian) refers to the starvation of millions of Ukrainians in 1932–33 as a result of Soviet policies. The Holodomor can be seen as the culmination of an assault by the Communist Party and Soviet state on the Ukrainian peasantry, who resisted Soviet policies. This assault occurred in the context of a campaign of intimidation and arrests of Ukrainian intellectuals, writers, artists, religious leaders, and political cadres, who were seen as a threat to Soviet ideological and state-building aspirations.
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, there has been more information released about the Holodomor. Although many of the eyewitnesses have passed, there remains plenty of evidence to provide documentation of this genocide against Ukrainians. Each and every book written or film produced is essential to remember the millions that perished under Russia's dictator, Stalin. It is a lesson in life we must all never forget and forever hold in promise to respect human life no matter what race, color, religion or gender.
85th Commemoration of The Holodomor in Dallas - 2018
The North Texas Holodomor Committee (NTHC) prepared the first ever exhibit in North Texas about the Ukrainian Genocide of 1932-33. In partnership with the Dallas Public Library, two large exhibit galleries and various display cases held factual pictures, maps, books and documentation on the Holodomor. Film documentaries were shown at the exhibit on weekends followed by discussions.
The Exhibit was at the Dallas Public Library, 4th Floor at 1515 Young Street in Dallas from September 16th through December 31, 2018. On September 23, 2018 at 2 PM, a traditional Commemoration Event was held and honored the victims of the Holodomor with over 100 guests in attendance. Canned goods were collected during the exhibit and donated to the North Texas Food Bank.
This exhibit was made possible by the generous contribution of the following Sponsors:
The Dallas Public Library, The Ukrainian American Society of Texas, Moxie Graphic Productions, Ben Yager Designs, World Class Coffee Catering and Dnipro Valley Transport
On November, 2018, former Senator Don Huffines of District 16 sent us a Resolution recognizing the efforts of our committee in presenting the Holodomor Exhibit at the Dallas Public Library, the Commemorative Ceremony held on September 22 and the series of documentaries about the Holodomor.

MISSION STATEMENT OF WALTER DURANTY’ S PULITZER PRIZE REVOCATION COMMITTEE
Walter Duranty was the recipient of the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in 1932, for his reporting of Joseph Stalin’s collectivization program, which was the instrument of the Holodomor and led to the killing of 7-10 million Ukrainians.
The Pulitzer Prize is a distinguished and highly coveted award given to deserving journalists who stake their reputation on the truth. In Duranty’s case, it was given to a man who did not live up to any standards of the award, but instead spread false news worldwide and promoted the legitimacy of the Soviet Union. He was responsible for the biggest cover-up of the century, the Holodomor, Ukraine’s Famine, a genocide that killed millions of starving Ukrainians.
As a subcommittee of the US Committee on Ukrainian Holodomor-Genocide Awareness, our focus is on the revocation of the Pulitzer Prize through information and engagement, questioning why the Pulitzer Committee, after over 20 years of evidence of falsifications of truth, shoddy journalism and precedence of revocation, still does not want to do the right thing.
