The Holodomor was a very long time ago. Many question why so much time and energy is devoted to this issue. However, when we meet with survivors, when we hear them speak of their experiences, although we can never fully understand, it helps bring us closer to that period in history that had such an impact on what defines Ukrainians as a nation, and who they are today. The contribution of survivors to understanding the Holodomor is invaluable.
We thank the survivors who have participated in this project. By sharing their stories they have ensured that the truth of the Holodomor will be forever documented in the history books.
