‘Gareth Jones. Di­ary’

Kyiv Post - - Entertainment Guide -

Kyiv’s Lavra Gallery will open an ex­hi­bi­tion to mark the Me­mo­rial Day of Holodomor Vic­tims. The ex­hi­bi­tion is ded­i­cated to out­stand­ing Bri­tish jour­nal­ist Gareth Jones, who was the first one to pub­li­cize Holodomor, a famine and an act of geno­cide es­tab­lished by Soviet au­thor­i­ties in Ukraine and Rus­sia’s south­ern re­gion of Kuban in 1932-1933, which killed at least 3.9 mil­lion peo­ple. “Gareth Jones. Di­ary” fea­tures quotes from the jour­nal­ist’s di­ary and in­stal­la­tions, which re­flect on them. The or­ga­niz­ers say that the vis­i­tors will have an op­por­tu­nity to find out about the trips Jones took to Ukraine, in what con­di­tions he did his in­ves­ti­ga­tions and how he was op­posed.

“Gareth Jones. Di­ary.” Lavra Gallery (9 Lavrska St.) Nov. 20 - Dec. 10. Mon-Fri. 12-6 p.m. Free
