After visiting the exhibition for an hour the Ukrainian political leader and member of Parliament wrote the following in the holodomor exhibition visitor's book:

"The Holodomor of 1932-33 in Ukraine was the biggest tragedy in the history of the Ukrainian people. The exhibition calls on those who visit it not to let anything like this happen again: neither physical, nor spiritual, nor language holodomor.

We are very grateful to the organizers and sponsors of the holodomor exhibition and especially to Mr. Morgan Williams [U.S.-Ukraine Foundation], that he has gathered such an exhibition about holodomor and organized its display in the days when Ukraine commemorates the 70th anniversary of the holodomor.

A lot of thanks to him and our deep respect,

People's Deputy of Ukraine
Hennadiy Udovenko"
