Documentary films are an excellent way of connecting students with complex historical content. They provide background information, an analysis of the event, and present points of interest for further study. In the case of the Holodomor the cover-up and denial are an integral part of the study of this genocide and the use of archival materials, with eye witness accounts, differing viewpoints helps shed some insight into understanding the events of the past.
