The Ukraine Support Alliance at Stanford recently held a commemorative event in White Plaza on campus to honor the victims of the Holodomor, a famine that devastated Ukraine between 1932 and 1933. The USAS aimed to raise awareness about this dark chapter in history by sharing information and engaging with the Stanford community.

USAS members set up an informational table, distributing booklets and answering questions from passersby. The booklets provided a detailed account of the famine, its causes under the Soviet regime, and the devastating human cost. Visuals played a key role in conveying the gravity of the Holodomor. The USAS displayed a series of informational posters, which incorporated infographics to illustrate the scale of the famine, primary sources such as excerpts from diaries or official documents lending historical weight, and photographs capturing the human suffering during that time.

The Stanford community had the opportunity to learn more about this tragic genocide. We hope the memory of the famine and its victims will not be forgotten.
