Myronivskyi district

Kyivskа region

Victims: 500

The population of Khodoriv village (Myronivskyi district, Kyivska region) suffered from the Holodomor-genocide of 1932-1933 in Ukraine.

During the Holodomor years, the village belonged to Rzhyshchivskyi district.

In 1929, the first kolkhoz named after Shevchenko was organized. Before the Holodomor, there were more than 400 yards in the village, where about 1500 people lived. After the Holodomor, about 380 yards and 1000 people left. One third of the inhabitants of the village died from starvation. 23 persons, executed by starvation, are identified, 19 of them are children.

The active executives of the policy of Ukrainian peasants’ subjection were their co-villagers L. P. Zahorodko, Arion Vasylenko, Tymish Kerekeza, P. O. Dryhota, M. S. Oleksiienko, Vasyl Burian and his wife Yevheniia.

In the 30s’, Khodoriv was the town with the river pier. Next to it, there were large storages of “Zahotzerno” (“Grain Provision”). In the first half of 1933, they were full of the wheat from the grain procurements from the harvest of 1932 not only from the nearby villages, but also from the neighboring districts. The grain decayed (ticks appeared there) and become unsuitable for export. That’s why, according to the instructions of the authorities, grain was secretly thrown into the Dnieper.

One third of the inhabitants of the village died from starvation. In 2007, at the mass grave, located at the village cemetery, the metal Memorial cross was installed by I. M. Krokhmal.
