Kyivskа region

Victims: 100

The population of Kypiachka 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 1930, 40% of the population was collectivized. In 1932, the forced total “freewill” collectivization reached 99% of the population. There was the collective farm called “Nove Zhyttia” (“New Life”), where was the canteen. However, one meal a day (balanda – rare soup) did not save the peasants from the death from starvation. There were the cases of plutocracy in the village.

Ivan Ivanovych Hamanenko and his co-villager were burying the dead. They were riding the cart through the village, picking the corpses of the dead up, and burying them in the large ditches at the cemetery.

During the Holodomor of 1932-1933, about 600 people died in the village. Only 59 persons are identified, 21 of them are children.

In 1996, at the mass burial place (village cemetery), the mound was heaped up, and the memorial cross was installed.
