Exhibit Chronicles Ukrainian Famine
“Not to be Forgotten — A Chronicle of the Communist Inquisition in Ukraine, 1917-1991” is on display at D.C.’s Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library.
The exhibit features 70 large pictorial panels that chronicle crimes in the Ukraine in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Ukrainian famine-genocide of 1930-33, in which an estimated 7 million to 10 million people lost their lives as a result of a manmade famine. Materials from the KGB archives are included in the exhibition, which is being presented by D.C.’s Ukrainian-American community.
“Not to be Forgotten” is on display through Dec. 1 in the A-level galleries of the MLK library, located at 901 G St. NW. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
