This memorial is dedicated to the Ukrainian people who died in the great famine of 1932-1933. It is a unique triangular site near Union Station which required precision coordination to fit the stone in a fashion for high visibility.
Due to the small size of the site and heavy road traffic, we needed to execute a highly unusual coordination of logistics and deliveries. Rugo furnished and installed textured 3″ black slate, sourced from the United Kingdom, and as well as black granite paving, benches, and walls which were all integrated with the bronze bas-relief statue.
