Holodomor’s 84th Commemorative Anniversary | SF Main Library

Saturday, November 18, 2017 - 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm | Cost: FREE
San Francisco Main Public Library | 100 Larkin St, San Francisco, CA 94102



The genocidal famine in Ukraine known as the Holodomor (from the Ukrainian holod meaning “hunger, starvation, famine” and moryty meaning “to induce suffering, to kill”) was caused by the cruel actions and policies of the totalitarian Stalinist regime.

To remember the victims and bring public awareness to the most damning episode in the ruthless and tragic history of the Soviet state, the Ukrainian-American community of San Francisco and Northern California respectfully offers this program to commemorate the 84th year of this man-made famine-genocide.

The program features screening of the romantic drama Bitter Harvest by German-Canadian director of Ukrainian descent George Mendeluk.  It is set in Soviet Ukraine in the early 1930s. Based on true historical events, the film conveys the untold story of the “Holodomor”, the genocidal famine engineered by Joseph Stalin. It is a tale of love, honor, rebellion and survival at a time when farmers in Ukraine were forced to adjust to the horrifying social engineering experiments. The film has been nominated for a prestigious Political Film Society Award in all four categories for Democracy, Exposé, Human Rights, and Peace.
