Lesa Melnyczuk’s book Holodomor – Silenced Voices of the Starved Children tells the story of Ukrainian victims of Stalin’s reign of terror and death by starvation in 1932- 1933.
The period in history as the Holodomor. Millions starved and died an agonising death. The true story of what happened in Ukraine during these years is told by the young survivors of the Holodomor who eventually made their way to Western Australia.
The book records the narratives of their interviews, and documents their personal memories. For over 50 years there was a total blackout of information imposed by the Soviet Union. This story of their suffering must not be lost nor forgotten.
