|Senior lecturer in English named to international committee|
Ronald Vossler, senior lecturer in the English department, has been named by the Ukrainian World Congress to the International Co-ordination Committee for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the famine in Ukraine.
The committee to which Vossler has been named will use a Ukrainian parliamentary resolution to spur their efforts to have a United Nations resolution passed naming the Soviet era famine of 1932-1933 as a genocide.
The committee of experts will work with the administration of Ukraine's President Yuschenko to plan and co-ordinate activities to highlight the anniversary of the genocide; the committee will also pursue class action law suits on behalf of victims of the Soviet engineered famine, and against the Russian Federation as successor to the USSR.
Vossler's books and films, focused on the plight of the Soviet era German minority during Stalin's collectivization era, have helped draw national and international attention to the topic.
