The population of Malyn town (Zhytomyrska oblast) suffered from the Holodomor-genocide of 1932-1933.
The eyewitness Mykhailo Mykhailovych Vlasenko (born in 1911) told about the Holodomor in the town: “I go to the factory, and the corpses lie around everywhere, like the firewood. There was not even a day without such situation. My brother Ivan lived in Leningrad, everything was fine with food there. He dried two sacks of rusk, and my mother asked me to take them. I was going on the roof of the carriage, I had to give one suck to the police as bribe, because there were the “borderlines,” it was forbidden to take any food. This is how I and my mom survived due to this sack of the rusk. Every morning, from the railway station, several wagons were moving. They were riding through the whole city, along the central street, and collected the new corpses.”
The mass burial place is located at the cemetery.
In Malyn town, the memorial to the Holodomor of 1932-1933 victims is installed on Ohiyenka Street (near the railway station).
