November 26 is the Holodomor Remembrance Day.

The Holodomor of 1932–1933 led to the loss of millions of lives and became the result of collectivization of agriculture, grain procurement and other manifestations of Stalinist economic policy in Ukraine. If collective farms of entire villages were not able to fulfill the plan for grain requisitions, they were put to “the black list”. That meant that industrial products would no longer be imported to these territories. According to various estimates, from 3 to 7 million Ukrainian became the victim of the Holodomor, which was over 80% of victims, among whom there also were Russians, Poles, Jews, Germans and representatives of other ethnic groups that lived in the UkrSSR. In 2006 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has officially recognized the Holodomor of 1932-33 as the genocide against the Ukrainian nation.

“Tkuma” Ukrainian Institute for Holocaust Studies and Museum “Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine” commemorate all victims of that terrible tragedy of 1932-33 and make practical efforts to preserve the memory of this genocide.
