Following are excerpts of testimony by eyewitnesses to the man-made famine of 1932-33 in Ukraine who appeared at the Philadelphia regional hearing of the U.S. Commission on the Ukraine Famine on June 5. Margarita Borzakivska, Philadelphia:
…In 1929 the forced collectivization of agriculture began in the villages of Podillia, where I lived and studied to be a designer of ceramics and glass. Almost 800 people studied in the institute which I attended in the town of Kamianets-Podilsky.
