Covering the Holodomor: Memory Eternal

In the film it has been investigated the role of the media in overcoming the silence around violations of human rights. The storyline focuses on the international press that was 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 that Ukrainian mass murder in 1930, and journalist Gareth Jones and Malcolm Muggeridge, who tried to tell the truth. It also raised the important question: 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 to view at the Museum in English and French.
