Creating the Holodomor Museum Together
as public-private partnership
In 2016, Ukraine returned to construction of phase II of the memorial complex commemorating Holodomor victims, the Holodomor Museum itself.

In 2008, the Hall of Remembrance was built and opened, and the park area was arranged. This was phase I of the complex but development of the project was postponed for 8 years for political reasons and to please the Kremlin's policy.

Not until the Dignity Revolution was the Ukrainian public demand heard by the government. The process of creating the Holodomor Museum started in 2016, at the request from the World Ukrainian Congress and the Public Committee for Commemorating Victims of the 1932–1933 Holodomor-Genocide to the President of Ukraine and the Government.

At a meeting of the Steering Committee to prepare and conduct events on the 85th anniversary of the 1932–1933 Holodomor in Ukraine on 15 January 2018, it was decided "to work out a mechanism for raising extra-budgetary funds and charitable support, including from foreign donors, to implement the project." At the same time were agreed main approaches to the project implementation under the public-private partnership principle and namely:

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine finances and takes responsibility for construction of the museum building;

The Holodomor Museum Foundation is responsible for financing the creation of the Museum's Main Exhibition with the raised charity non-government funds.

"Our Ukrainian nation was maimed by the Holodomor. Those who came through woes, torture and family losses have changed forever. Therefore, the Museum and all work around it should be aimed at reviving our nation. The whole of Ukraine should take part in this construction."

Holodomor Museum Foundation
The International Charitable Foundation for the Development of the Holodomor Victims Memorial (International Charitable Foundation of the Holodomor Museum since March 2021) was established at the initiative of the Public Committee for Commemorating Victims of the 1932–1933 Holodomor-Genocide, the World Ukrainian Congress and the Vasyl Stus Memorial All-Ukraine Human Rights Society.

Civil society through the International Foundation of the Holodomor Museum is responsible for financing creation of the Main Exhibition the Holodomor Museum. The future museum exhibition will show everyone the truth about one of the biggest crimes in human history: The Holodomor-Genocide, a designed slaughter of millions of Ukrainians. At the same time, this complex will testify to Ukrainians' strength, solidarity and dignity and to years-long struggle for life in the sovereign successful Ukrainian state.

For the first time in the history of museology in independent Ukraine, the best Ukrainian museologists, international experts and a designer consortium of the world's leading companies are involved in the work on the exhibition.

Over three years of its operation, the Holodomor Museum Foundation gained public support in the implementation of the project to create the Main Exhibition of the Holodomor Museum.

In 2018, the Holodomor Museum Foundation launched the fundraising campaign Road to Truth, which enables everyone to join the creation of the main exhibition of the Holodomor Museum through four benefactor packages.

Benefactors: why we support
the Project
Values that we have in our company, which has been responsible for improving the quality of Ukrainians' life for decades, are totally concordant with those in the Holodomor Museum Creating Project. After all, lessons of the past and culture of remembrance form the foundation of our future. We believe that it is impossible to succeed without mutual support and everyone's participation in developing the ecosystem of the humanitarian space of the Ukrainian State.
Filia Zhebrovska
Chairperson of the Supervisory Board at Farmak,
Member of the Supervisory Board of the Holodomor Museum Foundation

We have a troubled history and burden of the past under belt. Until 30 years ago, we could not speak broadly about many chapters in the Ukrainian history. Many of them were not studied in-depth. Today it is a pleasure for me that we spend much effort on discovering the historical truth and honoring it properly. Now the Holodomor Museum is a project unifying the whole Ukraine. East and west, south and north. Our company has always backed initiatives honoring Ukrainian history and culture.
Taras Kytsmei
Co-founder and Member of the Board at SoftServe
Our charitable foundation has been supporting big time social and cultural projects in Ukraine for many years. Given our civic position, we certainly could not pass by creation of the world's first Holodomor Museum, because we are convinced that business and civil society leaders and all those who connect their future with Ukraine should coalesce around it.

Art nights for benefactors
At the initiative of the Holodomor Museum Foundation, 2021 embarks upon a series of art nights in the capital cities of Ukrainian Oblasts for the benefactors of the Project to create the main exhibition of the Holodomor Museum.

The Lviv region was the first Oblast to endorse the idea by the International Foundation of the Holodomor Museum to hold art nights that band together the museum-complex benefactors.

On 18 December 2021, the Lviv National Opera is hosting the First Art Evening for Holodomor Museum main exhibition benefactors, entitled 'What Perished Is To Rise Again'.
