    Epifaniy: We must remember Holodomor victims to build real future and know our history

    On September 7, Metropolitan Epifaniy of Kyiv and All Ukraine took part in the grand opening of the renovated exposition at the Holodomor Museum Memorial Hall, which was modernized as part of the first phase of reconstruction.

    That’s according to the Spiritual Front of Ukraine with reference to the OCU press service.

    The head of the local Ukrainian Orthodox Church said the opening of the renovated Hall of Remembrance at the Holodomor-Genocide Museum is important to perpetuate the memory of those who died in the terrible famine in Ukraine in 1932-1933.

    “We have to remember them in order to build a real future, to know our true, objective history. If we remember, we will never allow such things in the future,” His Beatitude concluded.

    The event was also attended by Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine Oleksandr Tkachenko, patrons and philanthropists who took part in establishing the museum, as well as other guests.

    Alison Marshall, a UK resident, speaking at the opening of the exhibition, said she found in her attic letters about the Holodomor, sent by her grandfather, engineer Jerry Berman, who stayed in Stanytsia Luhanska in 1932-1933. The woman decided to hand the letters to the museum
