A group of Armenians stood out in the cold in 1915. They were forced to travel hundreds of miles during the rough winter. They traveled from Armenia into what is now known as Syria.
A small Armenian child was standing outside of a building in Syria in 1915. A lot of children and adults starved to death because of the lack of food given to them. The Armenians were en route from Armenia to Syria.
A person from the Ukraine was starved to death during Holodomor. The government stopped supplying food to the citizens. Over a million Ukrainians were killed in 1933 and 1934 by this famine.
Holodomor was a famine-turned-genocide that started in 1933. The genocide continued into 1933 and killed almost 2 million Ukrainians. The genocide took place in the Ukrainian SSR. This picture describes how the genocide was a struggle for food in the Ukrainian SSR.
