Myronivskyi district

Kyivskа region

Victims: 130

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

In the period of 1932-1933, the village belonged to Rzhyshchivskyi district. The number of the yards before the Holodomor was 50, after the Holodomor it decreased to 24.

The forced collectivization was reached by the methods of coercion and repressions. Instead of about one third of the peasants’ farms, which were the members of the kolkhoz at the beginning of 1932, 99% of the population belonged to the collective farms at the end of the year.

Wanting to complete the too high, unrealistic grain procurement plan, the authorities of Tarasivka sent the people with no dignity and conscience, but with party and Komsomol documents in the pockets, to go to the peasants’ yards. They were taking all the food stocks to the last grain and bean from their co-villagers. They well knew what the results would be, but the will of the higher party and state authorities was more important for them.

More than 130 people died from starvation in Tarasivka. Only 19 dead are identified, 8 of them are children. In 1996, at the mass burial place, located at the cemetery, the mound was heaped up and the wooden cross was installed for the costs of the Collective Agricultural Enterprise “Russia”.
