The Holodomor (Ukrainian: Голодомор, 'Морити голодом', or hunger-extermination) was a man-made famine in the Ukrainian SSR between 1932 and 1933. During the famine, which is also known as the "Terror-Famine in Ukraine" and "Famine-Genocide in Ukraine", millions of Ukrainians died of starvation in a peacetime catastrophe unprecedented in the history of Ukraine.
This is the newest museum in Kiev, opened to full extend in 2009. It is dedicated to the terrible historical tragedy of Ukraine. Its inner structure is composed according to modern principles of organization of museum space – with use of interactive means, demonstration of films and appropriate acoustic filling. The museum obtained the status “national” not long ago. The memorial complex “White candle” has become the monument to one of the most tragic events for Ukrainian nation in the 20th century, along with the National “Chernobyl” museum and the National World War 2 Museum.

Pochi di noi hanno sentito parlare di Holodomor, una carestia provocata dall'uomo che uccise milioni di ucraini nel 1932 e nel 1933. Per saperne di più, dirigetevi all'Holodomor Memorial Museum, nel parco vicino alla Kiev Pechers Lavra. È piuttosto piccolo, composto da una sola stanza, ma estremamente commovente.
