Ninety years ago, a dark chapter in human history was written, the Holodomor, a man-made famine that ravaged Ukraine from 1932 to 1933. This series of atrocities that led to the loss of millions of innocent lives, was the result of genocide by Josef Stalin. The Holodomor90 campaign aims to create a collective movement towards remembrance and recognition on the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor. Together we can ensure that the legacy of those who perished continues to teach and inspire.

The Holodomor: A Brief History

The Holodomor was a famine engineered by Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin’s regime. Food was used as a tool of oppression against millions of Ukrainians. Targeting Ukrainian farmers and their families, the resulting oppression was a brutal response to resistance against forced collectivization. The term “Holodomor” translates to “death by hunger” or “killing by hunger,” a somber testament to the calculated cruelty of the official state policy directed from Moscow.


Commemoration and Reflection: Our Mission

On the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor genocide, the Holodomor90 mission is to create a hub of information for individuals and communities around the world to connect, remember, and pay tribute to victims of the Holodomor.
