|English Department senior lecturer receives fellowship|
Senior lecturer Ron Vossler (English) has been awarded the 2006-2007 Larry Remele Fellowship from the North Dakota Humanities Council, for his project titled "Blood Washes Blood?: Genocide and Ethnic Revenge in Ukraine, 1915-1945."
This project draws upon a decade of Vossler's research, including numerous trips to Ukraine and Moldova, filmed interviews with survivors of Soviet-era collectivization, conversations with ethnic Germans who once served in SS Divisions, as well as translations of articles and personal letters derived from German language newspapers in the Dakotas.
Besides examining genocides against ethnic Germans and Jews in Ukraine, this study also reveals surprising connections between the Holocaust and the Soviet-era collectivization period that preceded it.
Funded by the North Dakota Humanities Council, Vossler will present a series of free public presentations on this project around North Dakota.
