Covering the Holodomor: Memory Eternal
The film investigates the role of the media in overcoming the silence around violations of human rights. The storyline focuses on the international press that published information about the Holodomor. The central focus is the fight of the media: Walter Duranty, who sympathized with the policies of Stalin and denied the mass murder of Ukrainians in the early 1930s, and journalists Gareth Jones and Malcolm Muggeridge, who tried to tell the truth. It also raises the important questions: what is the role and function of the media in shaping public opinion on human rights violations? What can we do as individuals, as communities, as nations, to ensure that genocides such as the Holodomor never happen again?
The film is available at the Museum in Ukrainian, English and French.
