Between 1932 and 1934 close to four million inhabitants of Soviet Ukraine, or every eight had died in the Holodomor or the Great Ukrainian Famine of 1932-1933. Defined as genocide by the original author of the term, Raphael Lemkin, who served as an adviser to the chief counsel at Nuremberg trials, the Holodomor remains a stark reminder to humanity of political attempts to subjugate groups of people that are viewed as “undesirable” by the ruling regime.

This lecture will present newest findings from the research team at the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute, who use cutting-edge geographic digital tools to explore demographic, environmental, political and economic factors, including collectivization, a form of the land reform, that contributed to this man-made famine.

Dr. Nadiya Kravets is an Associate and a former Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University. She received her Ph.D. at the University of Oxford in Politics and International Relations, focusing on Ukraine-Russia relations.
