PARSIPPANY, N.J. - The Ukrainian Weekly has unveiled the largest collection of materials on the Internet dedicated to the Great Famine of 1932-1933 in Ukraine.

The special section was opened on October 2 in conjunction with The Weekly's 65th anniversary as the newspaper's birthday gift to the community.

Located at  www.ukrweekly.com,  The Weekly's official website, the special section includes a chronology of the famine years, eyewitness accounts, editorials, media reports, stories about observances of the famine's 50th anniversary in 1983, scholarly articles, interviews with journalists who reported on the famine, transcripts of testimony on the famine commission bill ultimately passed by the U.S. Congress, texts of statements before the U.S. Commission on the Ukraine Famine, references and other documentation, as well as the full text of The Ukrainian Weekly's special issue on the Great Famine published on March 20, 1983. That issue was reprinted several times and its circulation exceeded 43,000 copies worldwide.

Containing 151 articles related to the famine, the Soviet-perpetrated genocide that resulted in the deaths of between 7 million and 10 million in Ukraine, the section is completely searchable, making it an invaluable resource for anyone interested in learning about the famine.

With the addition of the special section on the Great Famine, The Ukrainian Weekly Archive now contains 4,004 complete articles. That number does not include the excerpts of the newspaper's top stories that are posted on the site each week.

Materials are prepared by Serge Polishchuk and Awilda Rolon of The Weekly's production staff, and selected by the newspaper's editorial staff.
