The plaque commemorates Ukrainians who died as a result of the subsequent forced collectivisation by the Soviets and the man-made famine in 1932 and 1933, and all those who died from political oppression between 1917 and 1991.

The Ukrainian Famine was premeditated by the Soviet Union as a means to undermine the nationalistic pride of the Ukrainian people. It served to control and further oppress the Ukrainian people by denying them the basic vital essentials they needed to survive. The Ukrainian Famine is also known as Holodomor, meaning “death by hunger.”
