James Mace Memorial Panel

New evidence on how the famine was eye-witnessed and concealed.

IAUS Congress, Donetsk, Ukraine, on Wednesday 29th June 2005.

Chaired by Professor Mark von Hagen (a.m.) and Vasyl' Marochko (p.m.)



Ukrainian President, Victor Yushchenko, on hearing of Jim's death in May 2004 was quoted in "Our Ukraine" Press,, Kyiv, Ukraine, on Wed, May 5, 2004:

KYIV - "My heart bled when I learned about this great loss. James Mace - an eminent historian and a remarkable person - passed away. An American professor and academic historian had a unique feature, rare in our times: complete integrity, he wanted to learn the truth and spoke nothing but the truth."


Jim's last trip to New York, 2003:

These are some of the last photos taken of Jim whilst in New York during the 70th Holodomor Commemorations in 2003:

Vasyl' Marochko (Ukrainian Academy of Sciences) "Sucasna ukrajins'ka ta
rosijs'ka istoriohrafija na holod v Ukrajini: porivniannja pokolin'"


Marochko criticised the Ukrainian government and academia for inadequate support for his historical centre, based on a similar Polish Institute of National Memory.  He also told about the once-considerable collaboration between Ukrainian and Russian historians, but how each side held to its own position.  The Ukrainians insist that the famine was man-made and deliberate, if not genocide by Stalin and his leadership against Ukraine, while the Russians emphasize the all-Soviet character of the famine and downplay the aspect of man-made or deliberate.

He also said that the archives contain an considerable amount of documents on cannibalism, and no one so far has felt prepared to dig into them. He concluded by saying the more time passes, the more we will know how awful that was - thanks to the documents that will surface...
