The Holodomor was a man-made famine perpetrated by Joseph Stalin in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR) in 1932 and 1933 that killed approximately 10 million Ukrainians. During the famine, which is also known as the "Famine-Genocide in Ukraine," millions of citizens of the Ukrainian SSR, the majority of whom were Ukrainians, died of starvation in a peacetime catastrophe unprecedented in the history of Ukraine. Since 2006, the Holodomor has been recognized by the independent country of Ukraine and several other countries as a genocide of the Ukrainian people. To honour those who perished in the Holodomor, monuments have been dedicated and public events are held annually on the fourth Sunday of November in Ukraine and worldwide. One such monument is here in the City of Windsor's Jackson Park in the Queen Elizabeth II Gardens.​
