WE REMEMBER - THE WORLD ACKNOWLEDGES

In honor of the millions victims of Stalin's Holodomor

November 30, 2008

        The educational and memorial exhibition honoring 75th anniversary of Holodomor (Great Famine)

alt   The exhibition "Holodomor Through the Eyes of Ukrainian Artists" was held in November, 2008 at the Ukrainian
   House, Kyiv. More than 450 artworks from the private collection were on display, including paintings, graphics,
   posters, linocuts, folk art, photos, etc...

   For almost 70 years the Ukrainian artists were not allowed to depict in their artworks this horrible tragedy
   happened in Ukraine. Thus, almost all artworks are dated after 1988, when it was officially recognized that
   millions of Ukrainians were starved to death in 1932-1933. So, the artists could turn to this painful subject.
  For the first time the collection was displayed in November 2000, at the Teacher's House, Kyiv. The exhibition  had a title "Tragedy and Hope Of the Ukrainian Nation". It was one of the first exhibitions on this subject.
Since then the exhibition was displayed at different memorial events. 
In 2006-2007, at the Order of the President of Ukraine and supported by the Ministry of Culture part of the collection was displayed at the traveling exhibitions in all oblast centers and big cities of Ukraine. The exhibition was a big success, was widely covered in mass media, and was attended by a lot of people.
At the exhibition "We Remember - The World Acknowledges" are displayed the original artworks of the Ukrainian artists Mykola Bondarenko, Nestor Kyzenko, Nina Marchenko, Yuri Shevtsov, Volodymyr Kutkin, Ivan Novobranets, Ilko Myronenko, Vira Kuleba, and others. Their artworks are impressive, exciting, and shocking. They are reminiscent of their childhood memories, stories told by fathers and grandfathers.
The aim of the exhibition is to visually show the biggest tragedy of the Ukrainian nation. Today Ukrainians need to know more about the horrible events of their history under the soviets. And the world has to acknowledge the fact that the Ukrainian nation lost millions of people as a result of artificial famine (Holodomor) in 1932-1933.
