Remember - means to fight' during their march in memory of the victims of the Holodomor famine in western Ukrainian city of Lviv on November 29, 2013. Ukraine marked 80 years since the Stalin-era Holodomor famine, one of the darkest pages in its entire history that left millions dead and which is regarded by many as a genocide. The 1932-33 famine took place as harvests dwindled and Josef Stalin's Soviet police enforced the brutal policy of collectivising agriculture by requisitioning grain and other foodstuffs.
