Ukrainians were taught to forget their history, he said

President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko opened the exhibition “Ukraine Remembers! Holodomor of 1932-1933 – Genocide of Ukrainian Nation” in the Ukrainian House in Kyiv.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, speaking at the opening ceremony, the President pointed out that the tragedy of the Ukraine’s Great Famine [Holodomor] may be regarded in several dimensions: in particular, in solely a human dimension, considering the scales of victims, and also the national and international dimensions.

Victor Yushchenko recalled that in Soviet times, Ukrainians were taught to forget their history, in particular, the tragedy of 1932-33.

He also stressed that a test number one for every Ukrainian is the question: “Is it a tragedy personally for you or not?”

According to Victor Yushchenko, the nation, which forgets about victims of such tragedies, has no perspective.
