Holodomor commemorations around the world

The President of Ukraine, Viktor Yushchenko, has designated 2008 as the year of remembrance for the innocent victims of Holodomor – the man-made famine that claimed the lives of over 7 million Ukrainians between 1932-33. He has called on all nations of the world to acknowledge the famine as an act of genocide against the Ukrainian people – not for blame or revenge, but as a ‘resurrection of memory’ and an assertion of life.

Ukrainians all over the world have taken up the call to action and have organised events to raise awareness of the Holodomor – one of the worst atrocities in 20th century history. These pages provide a snapshot of events and action in other countries, along with links if you want to find out more.

The World Congress of Ukrainians has comprehensive information about events around the world.
