Hey, I’m Ukrainian by heritage, we had one of those too! Maybe that was one of the reasons I got my Irish phase back in high school~

The first time I heard about Holodomor, it brought to mind the Great Famine, too.

Most Irish people call it "The Famine" in English, I think this should be an acceptable translation.
