Holodomor Memorial

A memorial to victims of the famine in Soviet Ukraine which struck in 1932 and 1933 has been installed in Washington, a short distance from the US Capitol.

The famine it commemorates is known in Ukraine as Holodomor. Like a number of historians of recent years, including the late Robert Conquest and Yale professor Timothy Snyder, the memorial calls the famine a genocide which was intentionally carried out by the regime of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin.
