Dr. Leonid Davydenko, head of the Public Law Department and director of General Service Legal Clinic at the Odessa National University of Law, Ukraine, will analyze the terrific results of politically engineering cataclysm organized by one the most cruel dictators in the world–Joseph Stalin–in his war against Ukrainians, the largest national minority in Soviet Union.

The intention of this lecture is to analyze if the international definition of genocide is applicable to the Great Famine and what must be done by the international community to prevent similar tragedies in the future: learning from the past.
