Every year since 1997 Kazakhstan celebrates the Day of Remembrance of victims of one of the most tragic pages of the history of Kazakhstan – mass political repressions and the terrible famine of 1931-1933, which caused the death of millions of people. According to historians, during Stalin’s regime more than 100 thousand Kazakhstan people were repressed, of whom almost every fourth was shot. Kazakh intelligentsia was mercilessly and brutally executed, and approximately one third of the population of Kazakhstan perished from starvation.

Since 1997 every year Kazakhstan prople have remembered all the people who were subjected to repression by the authorities in the country and abroad; they have remembered their relatives and friends who never returned from the camps or died of starvation; they have remembered the millions of people who by the will of fate were on Kazakh soil during the deportation. Remembering that terrible time, every resident of Kazakhstan should be aware of the scale of the tragedy and its consequences for the history of our country.
