Turkish students will held a research project about Holodomor in Ukraine

8 February 2019

Students from the Middle East University volunteered to be interested in the topic of the Holodomor in Ukraine, reports Ukrinform.

“We are interested in Ukraine, its history. When we learned about the Holodomor, we wanted to know more and began to seek information. We did not expect it to be so difficult. There is no so much information in foreign languages, in particular in Turkish. In fact, it’s not easy to make a true impression of that period. The positive thing is that new books have recently been released, which is very important,” the students told about their work.For the study of the Holodomor in Ukraine, Cardellen Adjar, Furkan Durgutlu, Volkan Aydiner took up. Not only do they explore sources and work with archives, they also communicate with people and specialists who know about 30-ies and listen to their memories. Subsequently, students intend to continue their scientific work on this topic.

We remind that in 2018, with the assistance of the Ukrainian embassy in Ankara, two books on the Holodomor were published in Turkish: Stanislav Kulchytsky “The Holodomor in Ukraine 1932-33. How? Why?” and Volodymyr Vasylenko “Methodology of Legal Evaluation of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as a Genocide Crime”. Also, in December in Ankara, a scientific conference devoted to the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor of 1932-33 was held.
