Myronivskyi district

Kyivskа region

Victims: 221

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

During the Holodomor, the village belonged to Bohuslavskyi district. Before the Holodomor of 1932-1933, the number of the yards in the village, where the collective farm named after Shevchenko was created, was 453. After 1933, this number strongly decreased. The starting point of the collectivization was the demolishing of the church in 1929. Later the village activists were confiscating the food products, grain, and cattle, leaving the inhabitants with no chance to survive. 5 families were dekulakized, including Makar Viktorovych Bezverkhyi.

According to the memories of the village citizens who survived the starvation, during Holodomor years 221 persons died, among them 67 were children. Only 31 surnames are established, 7 of them are children.

In 2008, at the mass burial, located at the village cemetery, the Memorial cross was installed for the costs of Myronivskyi Cereal and Mixed Feed Plant.
