"Genocide is the most potent of all crimes against humanity because it is an effort to systematically wipe out a people and a culture as well as individual lives." ~ Jerry Costello
My first experience presenting at the Undergraduate Research Conference was in April of 2011, I presented a post on the Holodomor also known as Stalin's Mass Hunger Campeign. I presented a poster with two other students Karla Disla and Kelvin Marmolejos. The Holodomor occured between 1932 and 1933 in Soviet Occupied Ukraine. During this time over 70% of Ukraine's farmland was collectivized and all the food produced on it was sent back to the USSR. This resulted in the death of between 2.4 and 7.5 million with a missing population of as many as 6 million from the loss of unborn life. The death tolls were so high because this genocide coincided with one of the worst famines in Ukrainian history.
Below are pictures of the poster.
