The "Holodomor: Through The Eyes of Ukrainian Artists" exhibition at the Ukrainian House in Kyiv consists of over 250 original artworks by outstanding Ukrainian artists which show in a very moving, compelling and visual way all aspects of this tragedy against the Ukrainian people. The exhibition consists of artworks assembled over the past 12 years in Ukraine and is the largest exhibition of artworks ever held about the Holodomor. The exhibition will close on Sunday, Nov 30th.

There are several other Holodomor historical, informational and dramatic exhibitions now at the Ukrainian House including those from the Ukrainian Institute of Memory, the Ukraine 3000 Foundation, the SBU, the Archival Department and the Ministry of Culture. All of the exhibitions together comprise the largest exhibition ever held to commemorate the millions of victims of the Holodomor and to remember the political system and government leaders that caused millions to die.

For further information contact the International Holodomor Committee of the Ukrainian World Congress. The Ukrainian World Congress is an umbrella organization which has been representing and coordinating between Ukrainian Diaspora organizations since 1967.

On Saturday November 22 at 5 p.m., the Official Holodomor Commemorative Requiem Service, will take place at the Taras Shevchenko National Opera House, Kyiv, Ukraine. (By invitation only.)
