“Holodomor: Destruction of Identity” Exhibition Was Opened in Bucharest

2 December 2020

An exhibition of the National Museum of the Holodomor-Genocide “Holodomor: Destruction of Identity” opened in Ukraine at the Ukrainian Embassy in Bucharest to mark the 87th anniversary of the Holodomor of 1932–1933. It reveals the history of the destruction  of Ukrainian farmers—keeper of traditions, customs, language and culture by the communist totalitarian regime.

The genocide was directed against the Ukrainian intelligentsia, the Ukrainian church, against every active Ukrainian. It consisted in the destruction of the Ukrainian nation as such through the physical murder of Ukrainians, the humiliation of the Ukrainian language and culture, the falsification of Ukrainian history, the liquidation of entire institutions, and the erasure of the names of national heroes from the book of being of Ukraine.

Ukrainian diplomats in Romania have called on everyone to join the national minute of silence at 4 p.m. and light a Remembrance Candle in the windows of their homes.

We remind that in 2018, exhibitions on the Holodomor “Executed by Famine: Unknown Genocide of Ukrainians” and “Hungry Symphony” were presented in Romania.
