Ukraine’s Place in Europe: Toward a new understanding of interwar Ukrainian history (1921-1939)
This event, organized together with the Shevchenko Scientific Society and sponsored by: BCU Foundation and Ukrainian Cultural Centre Toronto, featured eminent Polish-Ukrainian Ola Hnatiuk and Roman Wysocki, who discussed their publishing project “Ukraine. Europe: 1921-1939,” the aim of which is to publish little-known documents that counteract falsifications of history, including a volume dedicated to documents of sociologist Olgerd Bochkovsky, who headed a Ukrainian emigre committee in Czechoslovakia that sought to bring international attention to the Holodomor and secure aid for the starving. Two volumes of Bochkovsky’s works have been published and the third is in print.
