Myronivskyi district

Kyivskа region

Victims: 357

The population of Yakhny village (Myronivskyi district, Kyivska region) suffered from the Holodomor-genocide of 1932-1933 in Ukraine. 357 persons died. Among them, only 33 names are successfully identified.

During the Holodomor years, the village belonged to Bohuslavskyi district. In the village, there was the collective farm named after Kaganovich.

In the period of collectivization and dekulakization, among other peasants, Dovbnia Anatolii Herasymovych, who had 9 children, was dekulakized. In order to fulfill the non-completed grain procurement plan of collective farm named after Kaganovich, the grain, other food products, and cattle were confiscated from the inhabitants of the village, who were left with no means for survival.

During the Holodomor, there was the maidan (the kindergarten) in the village. Many peasants survived due to the Vladyslavskyi cereal plant (they were able to eat the husk of the millet). Every day the cart was going along the village, bringing the bodies to the local cemetery. Dead and half-live people were thrown to the pits.

At the cemetery, there is the place of mass burial of the Holodomor victims, where the local inhabitants installed the wooden cross. In April of 2016, the public figures of the village installed the monument to the Holodomor victims.
