Member of the European Parliament, Co-Chair of Euronest Rebecca Harms will also take part at the conference.

The Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine was a dark tragic page of the European history, which was almost unknown to the broad public and international community as the totalitarian regime hid its crimes behind a wall of lies. It is high time to highlight the truth about the Holodomor and pay a decent tribute to all those who suffered in this horrific tragedy.

Holodomor was a man-made artificial famine orchestrated by the Soviet regime in Ukraine in 1932 – 1933 that killed millions of Ukrainians. In 2006, Ukraine's Parliament recognized the Holodomor as an act of genocide against the Ukrainian people.
