The genocidal famine in Ukraine known as the Holodomor was caused by the cruel actions and policies of the totalitarian Stalinist regime.  The Holodomor claimed the lives of over 10 million Ukrainians, at the last count, in just over a year!

 

To remember the victims and bring public awareness to the most damning episode in the ruthless and tragic history of the Soviet power, the Ukrainian-American Community of San Francisco and Northern California respectfully offers this program to commemorate the 82nd year of this man-made famine-genocide.
