Holodomor Websites & other Internet Resources:
Well organized English language website for basic facts and online access to memoirs and testimonies, selected research and education materials, popular press articles and miscellaneous opinion pieces, links to websites, as well as lists of books and articles in the “bibliography” section that are not online. Generally annotated. Maintained under the auspices of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, Toronto Branch.
~ Holodomor Research and Education Consortium Website of a recently founded consortium based in Canada, which “conducts and promotes research, publishes and disseminates authoritative information, prepares educational materials.” Currently offers concise Holodomor background information, access to the papers of their sponsored conferences, results of major survivor testimony projects, some including primary source images e.g. the Maniak collection ; and more. Also, the Education section presents a wealth of teaching resources.
Several other English language Holodomor websites exist around the world, each presenting some unique features and perspectives; updating with regard to informational content tends to be spotty. Two of the more well-developed sites:
~ Ucrainica Research Institute Canada based website, featuring primarily scholar generated content.
~ Ukrainian Genocide Famine 1932-1933 Website of the Ukrainian Genocide Famine Foundation – USA, based in Chicago.
Key websites from Ukraine for Holodomor information:
~ Famine-Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933
Website of the National Archives of Ukraine/ Державна архівна служба України, special section on the Holodomor. Wealth of primary documents, mostly in Ukrainian; includes thumbnails of verified Holodomor photographs beginning here. Not updated since 2008, but still maintained and very valuable to researchers. Ukrainian language access: Електронний Архів Голодомору
~ Holodomor. Пам’ять про Голодомор. Ukrainian language only website of the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance /Український Інститут Національної Пам’яті. Offers numerous up-to-date educational and public information resources about the Holodomor; e.g. a very good downloadable exhibit; booklets, video clips, info-graphics, links, etc. Some materials are available in English and described elsewhere on this website; e.g.: Holodomor: Communist Genocide in Ukraine (2016; booklet with authentic photos); People of Truth series; Holodomor info-graphics (editions in 3 languages).
~ Holodomor A gateway to research materials on the Holodomor presented by the Institute of History of Ukraine, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine/ Інститут історії України Національної академії наук України. This up-to-date and very well-maintained scholarly website is particularly helpful in linking directly to online text for most of the resources it lists. Search in both English or Ukrainian; most text in Ukrainian.
~ Famines One of several webpages available in English (Google translation) as well as in the original Ukrainian from the website of Ukraine’s National Museum “Memorial to Holodomor victims” /Національний музей «Меморіал жертв Голодомору in Kyiv. Particularly useful for some of its photo documentation by region. Another page of interest presents past exhibits (shows); Another, articles. Unfortunately, the Google translation to English is not only awkward, but sometimes totally misrepresents the meaning of the original text. Language selection available on each page.
