Giving Tuesday 2023
Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving, this year falls on November 28th. We are asking you to continue providing much needed support for Ukraine. Even after nearly two years...
Exiled from Donetsk since the 2014 Russian occupation, Stiazhkina will give a presentation on the occasion of the upcoming publication of her two books in the English language, the novel “Cecil the Lion Had to Die” and “Ukraine, War, Love: A Donetsk Diary”. In her talk she will share some episodes from Donetsk’s recent history that are entangled with her own experiences. She will speak about life in the world of the last words, about the Kennedy brothers who lived and worked in Donetsk, about a referendum on Donetsk joining the United Kingdom, about a New York where few New Yorkers have ever been, about lectures given to rats in the Izolyatsia concentration camp, and about the choice to be Ukrainian as a choice of love and freedom.
