aboutTheLogoAbout the Logo

The logo selected for the80th commemorative year, designed by Ukrainian Canadian artist Oleh Lesiuk, depicts five stalks of wheat delicately bound with a black ribbon. While serving as a reminder of the famine’s devastation, the wheat symbolizes the Ukrainian nation’s determination to live and prosper; the nation’s future. 

 

“Five Ears of Grain” Law
On August 7, 1932, Joseph Stalin authored a law with a sentence of death or 10 years’ imprisonment for the misappropriation of collective farm property. This law led to mass arrests and executions. Even children caught picking handfuls of grain from fields were convicted.
