Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin
Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art
2320 W. Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60622

For acclaimed historian Dr. Timothy Snyder, “bloodlands” is the region encompassing modern Poland, Ukraine, the Baltic States, Belarus and the edge of western Russia, where most of the politically motivated mass murders of civilians in Europe took place. Beginning with Stalin’s political famine in Ukraine in 1933, and the Great Terror in 1937-38, followed by Nazi and Soviet destruction of the educated classes in Poland, the killings also included the deliberate starvation of some 3 million Soviet POWs by the Nazis, the massacre more than 20,000 Polish officers at Katyn, and countless mass executions of civilians throughout the region by both Soviet and Nazi regimes. The bloodletting continued through 1945, destroying more than 14 million lives.

Dr. Snyder is Professor of History at Yale University and author of four highly regarded books, including The Reconstruction of Nations, Sketches from a Secret War and The Secret Lives of a Habsburg Archduke. He received his doctorate from the University of Oxford and has held fellowships in Paris, Vienna, Warsaw and at Harvard
