Holodomor (1932–1933)

Holodomor (1932–1933)

The history of the Great Famine of 1932–33, known as the Holodomor, started
when the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin ordered the collectivisation of agriculture.
The term ‘Holodomor’ is often used to encompass the starvation of the farmers as
well as a broader assault on the Ukrainian nation, which included an attack on the
cultural, religious and political leadership of Ukraine, most of which was under
Soviet power at that time.


With the teaching resources from this lesson students can:
• get basic information about the Holodomor
• reflect on why remembrance about the genocides is important and talk about the remembrance of the Holodomor

Webinar: Remembering the Holodomor

The Holodomor, known as the Great Famine of 1932-1933 and the genocide of the Ukrainian nation, is a tragic testament to a long-running disinformation campaign.
Our webinar aims to honour the memory of the victims of the Holodomor and equip educators with the tools to raise students' awareness of disinformation and fake news. We presented free educational resources developed by ENRS to help educators tackle this challenging chapter of Ukrainian history.
• Daria Chudinova from Holodomor Museum in Kyiv, who will present the museum's experiences in the area of the Holodomor education with different target groups, among other students and teenagers
• Karolina Stojek-Sawicka, teacher from Liceum Ogólnokształcące (Secondary School) nr V, Wrocław, Poland, who used educational materials developed by ENRS with her students, will share her experiences and provide tips on how to conduct a lesson about the Holodomor
