Between 1914 and 1954, the Ukrainian-speaking territories in East Central Europe suffered almost 15 million “excess deaths” as well as large-scale evacuations and population transfers, the consequences of two world wars, revolutions, famines, genocidal campaigns, and purges. George Liber argues that these events made and re-made Ukraine’s boundaries, institutionalized its national identities, and pruned its population according to various state-sponsored political, racial, and social ideologies. In short, the two world wars, the Holodomor, and the Holocaust played critical roles in forming today’s Ukraine. George O. Liber is Professor of History at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. His previous books include Soviet Nationality Policy, Urban Growth and Identity Change in the Ukrainian SSR, 1923-1934 and Alexander Dovzhenko: A Life in Soviet Film. Co-sponsored by the Holodomor Research and Education Consortium (Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, University of Alberta) and St. Vladimir Institute
