I think everyone should visit this museum. It is a part of our history that we should never forget. It leaves you with a good reason to think about how lucky you are living today

On way to the Kyevo Pecherska Lavra near the Soviet era war memorial is a monument to the Stalin famine in Ukraine that caused the deaths of millions. The statue of the hungry little girl is especially poignant.

I love the sculpture of the little malnourished girl outside the memorial and museum. It is powerful and well done. The same sculpture is in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The museum underground is small, but still worth a look. For those that only speak English, there...More

I think this is a must see. So many people don't know anything about this terrible time in Ukraine when Stalin starved millions of people

This memorial tells the story of the Holodomor, the artificially-induced famine that killed millions during Stalin's era. It is easy to find in the large park near the Arsenalna metro station - even the announcer lets you know you should go down here to see...More
