Why this petition matters

What is the Holodomor?

The Holodomor was the man-made famine-genocide perpetrated by Joseph Stalin and the Soviet-Communist regime in 1932-1933 against the Ukrainian people, which killed millions of innocent men, women and children who perished from forced starvation.

What does the word ‘Holodomor’ mean?

The Ukrainian word "Holodomor" means "death inflicted by starvation" or "extermination by hunger".

Why have most people never heard of it?

Stalin and the Soviet-Communist regime set out to erase the Holodomor from history, by waging an international propaganda campaign to deny and cover up the truth about the regime's complicity in the Ukrainian genocide. At the height of the famine, while millions of Ukrainians starved, the USSR flooded foreign markets with grain exports and sought to prevent journalists from reporting on Ukraine's famine-struck heartland. For decades, the world was unaware of the policy contrived by the Kremlin to starve and break the Ukrainian nation.

Present-day Russia continues to deny the Holodomor. But more than 17 countries, including Canada, have recognized the Holodomor as an act of genocide perpetrated against the Ukrainian people.

To this day, the word "Holodomor" remains absent from major English dictionaries. But thanks to the work of thousands of journalists, historians, educators, and researchers, the word "Holodomor" has become an internationally-recognized term referring to Stalin's state-imposed genocidal famine of the Ukrainian people.
