New York commemorates the victims of the Holodomor in Ukraine
A solemn event was held in New York to commemorate the victims of the Holodomor, a terrible genocide that occurred in Ukraine in 1932-1933. The event took place on October 29, 2023 at Eisenhower Park in Westbury, New York.
The Consulate General of Ukraine in New York, together with the UCCA Long Island Chapter and with the participation of the St. Vladimir Ukrainian Parish Center, organized this annual event to honor the memory of the millions of victims of the Holodomor.
In 2018, the New York State Senate and Assembly passed a joint resolution on the 85th anniversary of the 1932–1933 Holodomor in Ukraine, recognizing the tragedy as genocide of the Ukrainian people. The Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Holodomor in Ukraine was established with the goal of making people remember the innocent victims and not forget about the crimes of the Soviet regime.
“Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Holodomor” is traditionally held next to the monument to the victims of the Holodomor, which was installed in Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. This annual event unites the Ukrainian community of New York State in their desire to commemorate the terrible events that occurred during the Holodomor and its victims.
