Victims: 211

The population of Kyrykivka urban-type settlement (Velyka Pysarivka district, Sumy region) suffered from Holodomor-genocide of 1932-1933. According to the memoirs of the Holodomor witnesses, mortality in the village was massive. Around the courtyards drove carts that picked up the dead, stacked them in tombs barely covered with earth. In 1992, on the initiative of M. H. Bilan, the settlement council head, and I. M. Horban, school principal, a memorial sign to the Holodomor victims of 1932-1933 was installed.
