*The Holodomor refers most specifically to the brutal artificial famine imposed on the Ukrainian people in 1932-33 by Stalin’s regime.
*In its broadest sense, it refers to the Ukrainian genocide that began in 1929 with the massive waves of deadly deportations of Ukraine’s prospering peasant farmers as well as the deportations and executions of Ukraine’s religious, academic and cultural leaders, culminating in the devastating forced famine that killed millions more innocent men, women and children.
*The genocide in fact continued for several more years with the further destruction of Ukraine’s political leadership, the resettlement of Ukraine’s depopulated areas with other ethnic groups, the blatant public denial of famine, and the prosecution of those who dared to speak of it publicly.
Wonder when people are going to wake up to who the Bolsheviks actually were, and how many 10's and 10's of millions they eradicated.
Wonder if that'll ever make the National Curriculum....lol.....fat chance.
