of Famines Researchers In Ukraine was formed about 10 years ago
in Kyiv, Ukraine. For the past 10 years the Association and its
members have been researching and writing about the various famines
that occurred in Ukraine. Most of the focus has been on the three
huge ones which occurred in the early 20's, the early 30's and after
WWII. The Association in conjunction with Marian P. Kots, M. P.
Kots Publishing, Lexington, NY, USA, have published a large selection
of books in Ukrainian about the famines featuring eye witnesses
accounts, government documents and various other important historical
The Association has also sponsored various events in honor of those
who died in the famines. They encourage and support the building of
appropriate famine monuments around Ukraine. The Association has affiliated
organizations in most of the oblasts and have a wide network across
Levko Lukyanenko, a national political leader in Ukraine and the former
Ukraine Ambassador to Canada is Chairman of the Association. Lyuba
Stasiv serves as the Administrative Director.
As the 70th anniversary of the "Great Soviet Ukraine Famine/Genocide"
approaches in 2002-2003 the Association is eager to expand its work.
To do so they need to develop a much broader base of financial and
in-kind support. Operating funds in the past have been in very, very
short supply which has severely limited the work. www.ArtUkraine.com
is working with the Association to expand its base of support. ArtUkraine.com
will soon publish on this site a complete list of the books that have
been published by the Association and information about the price
and how to order the books that are still available.
www.ArtUkraine.com, in cooperation with
the Association is developing a large base of information, art, and
photographs about famines in Ukraine which can be found in The Great
Soviet Ukraine Famine/Genocide Gallery, a section of the Historical
Gallery of www.ArtUkraine.com . ArtUkraine and the Association are
also developing a large traveling Exhibition of paintings, posters,
photographs and other art works related to the famines.
