Not worthy by Lubomyr Luciuk

Not worthy by Lubomyr Luciuk – Walter Duranty’s Pulitzer Prize and the New York Times – is a book published twenty years ago. It was edited by Lubomyr Luciuk, the Director of Research for the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association, who called for the stripping of Duranty’s Pulitzer Prize for his series of articles in 1931. Duranty received the prize in 1932.

The book is a mix of articles, letters to the New York Times and from them, the report issued by historian Mark von Hagen, who was commissioned by the newspaper to see if Duranty lied in his reporting for which he received the Pulitzer Prize. The chapters, many of only a few pages long, offer a great insight into the famine, the cover-up, what the rest knew in 1931 and in the following two years.

As the cover suggests, this is not an easy read. It has photos from Ukraine at the time of the famine, it has details and facts, and accounts. It is also why it should be read, the same way we read about the Holocaust. I think the book is very well made, a must read for anyone who studies Ukraine, as the chapters are written by the experts on Ukraine and soviet union.
