Season 2 Episode 4
In the years 1932-1933, Ukraine suffered a famine that historians estimate killed over four million Ukrainians. As a result of the famine, women had to come up with different survival strategies and methods for procuring and preparing food for themselves and their families. Senior history major Alissa Zajac joins Hollie Marquess to discuss women’s roles in food procurement and preparation during the Holodomor.
