In 1932-33, a famine – the Holomodor (“extermination by hunger”) – raged through Ukraine, killing millions. Although the Soviet government denied it, news about the catastrophe got out. Through an extensive analysis of the newspapers, political speeches, and protests, Starving Ukraine examines both Canada’s reporting of the famine and the country’s response to it, highlighting the importance of journalists and protestors.
