Holodomor Memorial to Victims of the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide of 1932-1933
The National Park Service (NPS) and the Government of Ukraine propose to establish a memorial to the victims of the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide that took place between 1932 and 1933. The Ukrainian government is authorized to establish a memorial on federal land in the District of Columbia. The purpose of the proposed memorial is to honor the victims of the manmade famine that occurred in Ukraine between 1932 and 1933 and to inform and educate the public about those events because the famine is largely unknown in the United States. The site of the proposed memorial was approved by the NPS, the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC), and the Commission of Fine Arts in 2008, and is bounded by Massachusetts Avenue NW and F and North Capitol Streets NW.
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the NPS and the Ukrainian government are preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to identify alternative designs and assess the potential impacts of the proposal. The NPS is the lead federal agency, and the NCPC is a cooperating agency. Concurrently, the agencies will conduct consultation under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA).
