The exhibition project: “From the Holodomor to the Russian-Ukrainian War. 1932—2024”. 

13 May 2024

On May 17, 2024, the Museum of Resistance in the city of Limoges (France) will present the exhibition project: “From the Holodomor to the Russian-Ukrainian War. 1932—2024”. The Holodomor Museum provided items from its collection for the exhibition. The exhibits have already gone to France.

The Holodomor is little known to the French, so the project will open a new page of history for them. The organisers expect that after learning about the Ukrainian tragedy, Europeans and the French in particular will make intellectual and political efforts to help Ukraine. The exhibition aims to connect the past with the present and to show that the Holodomor and the modern war against Ukraine were equally caused by Russian imperialism. The war is a direct consequence of the fact that Russia, as the heir of the USSR, did not condemn the crimes of the past and retained criminal intentions.

The Holodomor Museum shared exhibits that tell the stories of victims and eyewitnesses of the Holodomor, people who saved others from starvation, as well as communist propaganda materials and artefacts belonging to the Ukrainian diaspora.

In addition to the objects, the exposition will feature the banner exhibition “Holodomor: Soviet Genocide of Ukrainians” about the Bolshevik occupation of Ukraine, the looting of the peasantry under the guise of “dekulakization” and the planned organisation of the Holodomor.

The events of the Russian war against Ukraine will be told through the photos of the photographer Yurii Bilak, who visited destroyed Ukrainian cities and villages and reproduced the consequences of Russian crimes.

The exhibition will last until September 23, 2024.
