MINNEAPOLIS – Four researchers of the Holodomor presented their findings at the annual meeting of the Oral History Association (OHA). The theme of the international conference, which took place October 4-7 in Minneapolis, was “Engaging Audiences: Oral History and the Public.”

Brent Bezo, Natlia Khanenko-Friesen, Sophia Isajiw and William Noll engaged conference participants in a roundtable discussion “Intergenerational Consequences of the Holodomor in Ukraine (1932-1933 Famine): What Oral History Accounts from Ukraine and the Diaspora Tell Us.” Their participation was supported by the Holodomor Research and Education Consortium (HREC) of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, University of Alberta.
