In the early 1930s Stalin imposed a deadly famine on the Ukraine in order to stifle Ukrainian nationalism and the resistance of its peasants to collectivization. About 5,000,000 Ukrainians died of starvation and associated diseases, all in effect murdered by Stalin. There are few photographs of the victims on the internet, and some of what I could find have been shown in the other rooms. Here is the face of one victim, a starving, emaciated boy. Given the death toll of this famine, he probably died as well. Documentation: Lethal Politics: Soviet Genocide and Mass Murder.
