Great hunger. What else needs to be told
On Devember 2, the International Cultural Centre invited you to a meeting called “Great Hunger. What else needs to be told. " The meeting accompanies the exhibition "Ukraine. Ukraine. A different angle on neighbourhood".

The Great Famine is a famine caused artificially by the communist authorities of the USSR in the years 1932–1933, which was particularly severe in today's eastern and central Ukraine. The Holodomor killed millions of victims, but for many years, until the collapse of the USSR, any statements about it were treated as a crime. Today, the memory of the Great Famine is maintained by the authorities of independent Ukraine, although we still know little about it in Poland.
Bohdan Huď, a Ukrainian historian and political scientist, and Izabella Chruślińska, Polish social activist, promoter of Polish-Ukrainian dialogue will talk about the Holodomor.
