U.S. Committee for Ukrainian Holodomor Genocide Awareness started this petition to The New York Times and Pulitzer Prize Board

Walter Duranty was the recipient of the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in 1932 for his reporting in The New York Times of Joseph Stalin’s collectivization program, called The Five-Year Plan, which served as a vehicle for the genocide of 7-10 million Ukrainians, called Holodomor. Denying publicly any famine, Walter Duranty did in private acknowledge Stalin’s atrocities but continued to lie in order to have access to Stalin.

The Pulitzer Prize is a distinguished and highly coveted award given to deserving journalists who stake their reputation on the truth. In Duranty’s case, it was given to a man who did not live up to journalistic ethics or standards of the award, but instead spread false news worldwide of a totalitarian regime.

The Holodomor was the biggest cover-up of the 20th century. It is still not very well known, since it was silenced for over 50 years, and truthful journalists were negated and mocked by Duranty, who was considered the authority on everything Soviet.

In 2003 after a comprehensive international campaign launched by the Ukrainian community and a study undertaken by Columbia University’s Professor Mark von Hagen, The New York Times and the Pulitzer Prize Board concluded that “there was no clear and convincing evidence of deliberate deception” to remove Walter Duranty’s Pulitzer.

The U.S. Committee for Ukrainian Holodomor-Genocide Awareness requests your support in petitioning the Pulitzer Prize Board to revoke Duranty’s undeserved prize. After nearly 90 years, journalistic ethics and the truth about Stalin’s genocide of the Ukrainian nation need to be recognized. Crimes against humanity deserve accountability. Stripping Walter Duranty of his Pulitzer Prize would be a grand gesture of atonement for the wrongs committed by The New York Times and the Pulitzer Prize Board.      Revoke!
