Join and light a candle in memory of the Communist genocide victims.

Holodomor is a Ukrainian term meaning killing by starvation. This is the name given to the national catastrophe of 1932 - 1933, which claimed millions of lives. The famine did not emerge as a result of natural disasters such as drought or crop failure. This was part of a deliberate policy of theCommunist regime aimed at physical elimination of the Ukrainians.

DEATH RATES IN JUNE OF 1933:
EVERY MINUTE - 24 PEOPLE
EVERY HOUR - 1,440 PEOPLE
EVERY DAY - 34,560 PEOPLE

These terrible crimes and the deliberate policy of hiding their consequences made it impossible to estimate the exact number of innocent people who died from famine in 1932-1933. Research of the Mykhailo Ptukha Institute of Demography and Social Studies of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences estimated that Ukraine lost 4.5 million people because of the Holodomor. Specifically, 3.9 million people died and 600 thousand babies died prematurely.
