Kyivan Yaroslava Muzychenko gave our Museum a selection of books about the Holodomor

4 May 2023

Our museum book collection has been replenished! Ethnologist, journalist and research associate of the National Centre of Folk Culture “Ivan Honchar Museum” Yaroslava Muzychenko donated her library of books on the Holodomor to our institution. These are almost two dozen publications, including “Humanity in an inhuman time”, “With a guardian angel and a photo of life” by Volodymyr Zalizniak, “Crime” by Petro Kardash, “Red Apocalypse: Through the Holodomor and Dekulakization” by Dmytro Hoychenko, as well as books of witnesses’ memories of the Holodomor, recorded in different regions of Ukraine, and other thematic literature.

Ms Yaroslava worked for a long time on the topic of the Holodomor as a journalist and museum employee, including our museum, so she collected a considerable collection of books on this topic. Ms Yaroslava decided to transfer the literature from her private library to our Museum, so that a wider circle of interested people would have access to these publications.

We will remind you that books and rare printed editions of the period of collectivization and the Holodomor were previously donated to our museum by philanthropist Dmytro Pirkl and patron Andrii Kravchenko.

The National Museum of the Holodomor-genocide invites everyone who cares: if you have unique things related to the period of 1932-1933 – photos, letters, documents or other rarities, tell us about them by writing to [email protected]. Or by phone at (044) 254-45-12.

Unique heirlooms of your family can become valuable exhibits in the exposition, the creation of which is currently underway.
