Statues as Symbols

7 May 2022

Centuries may pass but the symboic power of statues remains as strong as ever. All across europe soviet era statues are being toppled in protest at Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Whilst these monumental effigies of the politically powerful are now smashed, the small and dignified commemoration of the last terror imposed on Ukraine by the Soviets - the Holdomor - remains standing. The Holdemor was a soviet engineered famine in Ukraine that resulted in millions of deaths. ( See https://www.invisiblewomen.org.uk/gettingattention/post/218 for more information).
