  The term "Holodomor" was coined from the Ukrainian noun  "holod"
  (hunger, starvation, famine) and the verb "moryty" (to cause to be
  wasted, to kill). As a result of Holodomor 1932-1933 the Ukrainian
  Soviet Republic lost, according to various estimates, several million
  people died, overwhelmingly ethnic Ukrainians.

  Because the posters are true testimony of Holodomor 1932-1933 in
  Ukraine they will give the opportunity for future generations to learn
  about the biggest tragedy in Ukraine's history.
  
  The posters are made from original artworks of the educational and 
 memorial collection "Holodomor: Through the Eyes of Ukrainian Artists".
The collection was started in 1998 as a part of the program to visually tell the world about Holodomor. There are about 450 artworks in the collection: paintings, graphics, posters, linocuts, folk art, photographs, etc. For almost 70 years Ukrainian artists were not allowed to depict this horrible tragedy. Thus, most of the artworks were created after 1988 when for the first time it was officially recognized that millions of Ukrainians were starved to death in 1932-1933 and the artists were allowed to touch this painful subject...
