Every year on the fourth Saturday of November, Ukraine commemorates the victims of the Holodomor (famine-genocide) of 1932–1933 and the mass artificial famines of 1921–1923 and 1946–1947.
In 2023, the Day of Remembrance of the Holodomor Victims falls on November 25. Join the National Minute of Silence at 4:00 p.m. on this day. Think of the millions of human lives that Ukraine lost as a result of the Holodomor and massive artificial famines.
This year, for the second time, we will honor the victims of the Stalinist genocide in the conditions of a full-scale war, which is accompanied by Russia’s genocidal actions against Ukrainians. Tragic events and crimes unfolding in front of our eyes demonstrate: living memory is extremely important; those who commit crimes against humanity must be condemned by the world community and the victims honored. We also call on people all over the world to light a fire in their homes as a sign of mourning for the dead, faith in Ukraine’s victory, and willingness to make efforts to prevent genocides from happening again.
