On May 19, 2021, the website of the Global Holodomor Descendants Network was launched and the registration of descendants began.
The Holodomor Descendants’ Network, established by the Ukrainian World Congress on the initiative of its International Coordinating Committee for Holodomor Awareness and Recognition in November 2020, is the first global community aimed at uniting the relatives of the survivors of the Holodomor of 1932–1933 in Ukraine.
The network collects and protects the stories of families affected by the Holodomor genocide and raises awareness among the descendants of Holodomor victims about the long-term consequences of the genocide, preserves and honours the memory of innocent victims, as well as defends the true facts about the Holodomor to counter misinformation
