In 2006, U.S.Congress authorized the Government of Ukraine to establish a memorial on Federal land in the District of Columbia to honor the victims of the manmade famine that occurred in Ukraine in 1932–1933.
Since then the Government of Ukraine, in close cooperation with the Ukrainian community, has worked on the implementation of this project.
Dedication of the Holodomor Memorial is scheduled for November 7, 2015.
