Myronivskyi district

Kyivskа region

Victims: 2500

The population of Zelenky village (Myronivskyi district, Kyivska region) suffered from Holodomor-genocide of 1932-1933. According to the calculation of Zelenky village council (made in 1993), Holodomor killed about 2.5 thousand man, women, and children. Before Holodomor, there were 1630 yards in the village, after it the number decreased to approximately 1580.

As the grain procurement plan was not completed, Zelenky village was put onto the “black board”. This meant total isolation of the village, the cancellation of supplies carrying to the village, the termination of cooperative and state trading, the prohibition of trading for collective farms, their members and individual farmers. After this did not help to activate the grain procurements, in autumn of 1932, the “red brigade” consisting of 20 people from Myronivka village had come to Zelenky. The searches and confiscations recrudesced. Everything eatable and things that could have been changed for food (clothes, embroidered shawls, towels) were confiscated.

Holodomor finished after the new harvest was collected, in autumn of 1933. However, people, mostly children, still were dying in 1934, from dysentery, anemia, other diseases caused by starvation.

In the village, there are several places of mass burials, where the corpses of people killed by starvation were brought. In one pit, 50 to 100 bodies were buried. At the village cemeteries, the memorial monuments (big crosses and the mound) are installed. In the center of the village, the monument to Holodomor victims was installed.
Here you can see the coordinates of one of the mass graves. Also there is the photo of Holodomor victims monument, which is located in the center of the village.
