85th Commemoration of the Holodomor

Free

The Holodomor (UkrainianГолодомор) (derived from морити голодом, “to kill by starvation”) was a man-made famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933 that killed millions of Ukrainians. It is also known as the Terror-Famine and Famine-Genocide in Ukraine,\ or The Ukrainian Genocide of 1932–33.

It was a famine which affected the major grain-producing areas of the country. During the Holodomor, millions of of Ukrainians died of starvation in a peacetime catastrophe unprecedented in the history of Ukraine.

 Since 2006, the Holodomor has been recognized by Ukraine and 15 other countries as a genocide of the Ukrainian people carried out by Stalin.

We invite you commemorate this tragedy with us as we mourn those who dies and celebrate those who survived.
