The unveiling of the exhibition dedicated to the Holodomor

The Great Famine or as the Ukrainians call it Holodomor, was a crime. The artificially provoked famine in the Soviet Union between 1932 and 1933 caused mass deaths particularly in Ukraine. The number of victims cannot be accurately estimated. It surely affected millions of the people. The famine took the lives of the weakest – especially the elders and children. In the summer of 1933, were 25,000 people dying an avarage a day. There were also cases of cannibalism.

The exhibition 'Soviet Holodomor - Genocide in Ukraine. We were killed because we were Ukrainians ... "came to Bialystok from the National Museum of the Holodomor-Genocide in Kiev. It presents the results of Ukrainian researches on the Great Famine. Some of the materials presented in the exhibition can be shocking, but they definitely make that if someone sees them will never forget about this crime. Because this cannot be forgotten. The exhibition was presented in Poland for the first time as part of cooperation between the Sybir Memorial Museum and the National Museum of the Holodomor-Genocide. The meeting was attended by Dr. Julia Kocur - a representative of the Kiev Museum.

The event took place on November 20, 2019 at 13.30 in the Exhibition and Conference Center of Białystok Archdiocese at Kościelna 1A Street in Białystok. We kindly invite you to watch photos.
