Victims of Holodomor #ukraine
I have recently come across a website in Ukrainian listing known victims of Holodomor in 1932-1933. The website is https://victimsholodomor.org.ua/ . My question is whether the people listed are verifiably victims of Holodomor (meaning that they have died of starvation or malnutrition-related illness) or the list automatically includes everyone who verifiably died during that period.
The reason I am asking is because quite surprisingly I found my great-great-grandmother Gitlya Barenboym on the list, and I have my doubts that she died of starvation or malnutrition:
- She was 85 when she died, which correlates with her children and grandchildren who also lived into their 80's.
- She is listed as living with her son. Everything I know about this son (who himself lived until the age of 93) is that he was a good man and would not have let his mother starve.
- That whole side of the family has always been close-knit and extremely capable. In fact, I would expect these people to be the least likely among my relatives to die during famine.
Thank you all in advance for your answers.
