23 November 2021

On November 23, a round table discussion on “How to talk to children about the Holodomor” was held as part of the annual commemoration of the Holodomor victims of 1932-1933.

Yana Gorodnyak, the head of the excursion and educational department of the National Museum of the Holodomor-Genocide, spoke about how to work with young people in museum expositions.

“Every year the number of the youngest listeners grows, so we have developed various interactive classes that are not traumatic, but interesting. For example, the game “Hide and Seek”, a master class in making a candle. For each age group, there is an educational lesson that will be useful to them. We talk to children about rights, fakes in the media, conduct online classes and video tours, which allow visiting the Museum from anywhere in the world, “ said Yana Gorodnyak.

She also noted that children should be introduced to the Holodomor, first of all, in the family, so that children can find out what will be discussed during the tour or lesson when they come to the Museum.
