88th Anniversary of Holodomor-Genocide
The communist totalitarian regime in 1932-1933 committed a particularly serious crime – genocide against Ukrainian nation. As a result of comprehensive forensic examinations, it was established that in 1932-1933 the communist totalitarian regime killed 10 million 500 thousand Ukrainians, including 4 million children.
The organizers of the genocide created not only a system of extermination of Ukrainians, but a mechanism for hiding the consequences of the crime from the public and the international community as well. The reasons and motives of a particularly serious crime of genocide are the prevention of the restoration of the Ukrainian state and the destruction of the national liberation movement.
National Museum of the Holodomor-Genocide, as a center honoring the memory of the victims of the Holodomor , has prepared educational, exhibition, and scientific projects dedicated to the 88th anniversary of the Holodomor-Genocide of 1932-1933.
