The Holodomor Museum will show the world’s most valuable exhibit on the subject of the Holodomor

14 November 2022

The National Museum of the Holodomor-Genocide, with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, and the creative partner of the Postmen Information Agency project, presents a unique exhibition, “Leica that saw the Holodomor”.

For the first time in Ukraine and the world, visitors will be able to see the original album with photos of Kharkiv from 1933 and the Leica II camera that they were taken with. These objects belonged to the Austrian engineer Alexander Wienerberger and are the world’s most valuable exhibits from the Holodomor history, and the photos are evidence of the the crime commitment and confirmation that, despite the change in the name of the state and its leaders, Moscow’s intentions towards Ukraine have not changed, and the unpunished crime of genocide has found its continuation in the current war: 90 years ago, Kharkiv was dying of hunger, and today – from Russian bombs and bullets.

The exhibition opening will take place on November 23 at 12:00 in the Hall of Memory of the National Museum of Holodomor-Genocide (Kyiv, Lavrska St., 3).

The exhibition will last only on November 23-27, 2022.

Media accreditation for the event is required:
