Excursions in Kiev & suburbs » Holodomor Memorial

Holodomor Memorial

The memorial complex and the 'Candle of Memory' monument are part of the installations junction in the Park of Undying Glory, which are dedicated to Holodomor events in Ukraine and were unveiled in 2008. Holodomor was officially acknowledged by governments of Ukraine, Australia, Hungary, Lithuania, Estonia, Italy, Argentina, Canada, Georgia, Poland, United States of America, Czech Republic and Columbia as genocide of Ukrainian people by Stalinist regime in the 30s. The 'Candle of Memory' is the central composition of the Memorial. It is represented by a 32-meter concrete chapel made in the shape of a white candle with gilded laced flame. The lower part of the candle is belted with four roods that resemble mill vanes. The roods-cages underneath the candle are decorated with golden statures of cranes. They all are encaged, but one manages to escape and that’s very symbolic. The facets of the Candle are covered with ornament that resembles traditional Ukrainian embroidery. The territory around the monument is surrounded by millstones.
A small figure of a girl pathetically embracing wheat spikelets symbolizes children perished from starvation and the Law of Five Spikelets that existed in the 30s. According to this law peasants accused in stealing kolkhoz property were imprisoned for 10 years. Even a few spikelets, culled by a child were also considered as stealing government property. The alley is made in the shape of tilled soil symbolizing fertility of Ukrainian black earth. The Memory Hall is the next strand of the Memorial Complex. 19 volumes of the National Memory Book of Holodomor victims of 1932-33 in Ukraine and its electronic version are represented here. That’s why every visitor has an ability to receive the information about Holodomor victims in any given inhabited locality of Ukraine. From the Memory Hall visitors pass to the central hall of the Memorial Museum and to symbolic 'black planks', granite slabs that have names of the inhabited localities harmed during Holodomor troubled years engraved on them. Currently research workers found 14 thousand names of localities that were part of Soviet Ukraine at that moment. That’s why the list isn’t complete and the work still continues. There’s an exhibition of the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory on display in the Memory Hall.Documentary films dedicated to Holodomor are also demonstrated in the Museum halls.

All this and much more you will learn from our guide who will take you around the memorial complex and answer all your questions.
