Most brought candles, pots of grain or wheat cones to lay at the Memorial.  

Activist have also been distributing loafs of bread among participants. “In 1932-33 only those who were giving bread were giving the future. This was the only way to survive. Today we share bread to share the memory of genocide. This is how we will not let this crime happen again,” said historian Volodymyr Viatrovych.
