Abstract:

The effects of the genocides of the twentieth century-the Armenian and the Holocaust-have been well documented, but the Holodomor has become the topic of study only recently. A little known essay, penned by Raphael Lemkin in 1953 and preserved in the New York Public Library until it was published in 2008, provided scholars a tool for analysis of the atrocity that has been hidden from the public and edited from history books for decades. The authors of the articles included in this collection of materials from the symposium, Women and the Holodomor-Genocide, argue that the actions of all strata, victims as well as perpetrators, in Soviet Ukraine in the 1930s need to be examined in order to understand why and how the fabric of society was torn apart and unraveled into genocidal violence. Two thirds of eyewitness testimonies have been narrated by women, and their voices and perspectives are key to understanding violence in societies where genocide occurs. --
