The facebook page of the Tychyna Museum in Kyiv currently has information on Holodomor.org.uk and a photograph of my visit to the Holodomor memorial in Pisky.
The museum has been distributing information on the Holodomor in the days running up to the commemoration and the facebook page and website are a valuable source of information about not only Pavlo Tychyna but also the cultural activities organised by this valuable institution and its director Tetiana Sosnowska.
This is a quote from a communist leader speaking in the Kharkiv region in 1934:
"Famine in Ukraine was brought on to decrease the number of Ukrainians, replace the dead with people from other parts of the USSR, and thereby to kill the slightest thought of any Ukrainian independence."
- V. Danilov et al., Sovetskaia derevnia glazami OGPU_NKVD. T. 3, kn. 2. Moscow 2004. P. 572
