The sixth annual German-Ukrainian Historical Commission conference, postponed to 2021 due to the pandemic, will be held in Berlin on September 17th-18th, 2021. Cooperation partners are the Holodomor Research and Education Center in Ukraine and the Institute for Eastern European Studies of the FU Berlin. The conference is sponsored by the DAAD with funds from the German Federal Foreign Office (AA).

At its annual conference, the German-Ukrainian Historical Commission aims to shed light on the question of the genocidal nature of the Holodomor from a historical and international law perspective. In five panels of the conference, the members of the Commission and other historians from Ukraine, Germany, Belarus, Austria, the USA and Canada will deal with different aspects of the famine in Ukraine in 1932-1933.

On the evening of September 17th, the German-Ukrainian Historical Commission invites all interested parties to attend the keynote speech by Italian historian and Holodomor expert Andrea Graziosi, who will give a lecture on "Famines and Genocides: a Global Perspective".
