Abstract

The article examines the topic of the Ukrainian Holodomor-genocide of 1932–1933 in the context of the social, political and educational challenges that have arisen since the proclamation of independence and are relevant today. In the focus of the article there is the genocidal theory of implementation and comprehension of tragic events in Ukrainian history. This theory underlies not only the overwhelming majority of academic studies, but is also deeply rooted in traumatic experience of the "collective unconscious". It continues to exist as an important segment of national memory. It is proved that the understanding of this problem should occur not only within the scientific interdisciplinary studies, but also during the development of a "memorial-patriotic" course in the political and educational spheres, taking into account previous mistakes, in order to prevent the repetition of such tragic events in the future, to mobilize spiritual forces and constructive potential for the creation of a Ukrainian political nation in the 21st century.
