The 2013-2014 Euromaidan Revolution's call for justice, dignity, and liberty brought Ukraine, which had 'disappeared ' behind the Iron Curtain for decades after the horrors of World War II, into the world's public consciousness. Yet, the country was soon almost forgotten again. In early 2022, the rapid escalation of Putin's war on Ukraine has put the country back into the spotlight. Without knowing the country's past, one cannot understand its present.

This anthology tackles the complex history of terror and violence in Ukraine - from the millionfold starvation of the Holodomor to the changing occupation regimes, from the 'Shoah by Bullets' to the Chornobyl disaster. Those ready to delve deeper into the checkered, painful history of the country will better understand Ukraine's current quest for independence, freedom, and democracy.
