Folk craftswoman Valentina Melnik from the Cherkasy region has made more than ten original dolls on the theme of the Holodomor. She participates in the Dolls for the Unborn project, dedicated to children who were never born in 1932-1933.
The project was started in 2018 by Tato Zolochevska (Tato Zolo) from Bremen (Germany).It is an annual virtual thematic exhibition of creative works and memories of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine.
