The Famine of 1932-1933 is one of the most terrible national tragedies and one of the greatest humanitarian catastrophes in history. Ukraine is located in the Central Europe and is famous for its immensely fertile soil. It is also the country where peasants were dying en masse with a vain hope to get any kind of aid.
The historic truth about the crime committed by Stalin’s totalitarian regime is being revealed now, bringing out the nation’s genetic memory about it.
The goal of the exhibition is to show the work of those who were trying to reveal the truth about the Famine of 1932-1933 to the world and to commemorate the starved to death in Ukraine.
Having realized the mechanism of the Soviet repressive system at the time of the most severe repressions, we will be able to create the mechanisms of preventing totalitarian regimes from coming to the fore anytime in the future. In the meantime, the tragedy of Ukraine should be a warning to all other nations that do not wish anything like this to happen in their countries.
The exhibition consists of three main parts: the information posters, the documents in the exhibition cases and the “Unknown famine” movie.
The “Holodomor as an Act of Genocide: the Path to Truth”exhibition will be open for visitors at the Memory Hall of the National Museum “The Memorial in Commemoration of Famines’ Victims in Ukraine” from 21 August to 24 September 2013.
