People of Truth. World to know

Exhibitions 20151125 - 20160529

November 25, 2015 – MAY 29, 2016.


Ukraine in 1932 – 1933 survived genocide – the Holodomor, which took millions of lives.

The communist regime not only tried to hide the truth about the Holodomor in Ukraine, but also destroyed all the memory of the crime. It was dangerous not only to write about it in the press, send letters to the party leaders or relatives abroad, but even to mention it in private diaries. Any careless record could destroy life and result in decades of GULAG camps. However, despite all the dangers in the hardest times there were people who felt their responsibility to tell the truth and could not be silent.

Each year Ukrainian Institute of National Memory offers a special topic to emphasize a particular aspect of the Holodomor. In 2015 this topic sounds like “The people of the truth. World to know ” –  a special commemoration of the victims who risked their careers, freedom or even life doing everything to preserve and spread the truth about the Holodomor.
