Silenced Voices of the Starved Children

Holodomor – Silenced Voices of the Starved Children is a collection of forty stories told out of their first-hand experiences of the Ukrainian terror-famine of 1932–33 by survivors who later migrated to Western Australia.

The text is complemented by reproductions of paintings rendered in the style of that era to provide a visual dimension to the harrowing story.
