Holodomor

A combination of the Ukrainian words holod, meaning "hunger," and mor, meaning "plague," the term Holodomor refers to the Ukrainian famine that led to millions of deaths in 1932 and 1933. Though some scholars note that natural causes—such as weather and a poor harvest—might have contributed to the famine, most modern historians agree that it was a direct result of the policies of the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin.

Worse than the "Holocaust", although not so often spoken about.

It is possible to discern a difference between Holocaust and Holodomor.
Holocaust has been created by the government of a one Nation to exterminate another Nation that did not occupy at that time their own country as being expelled from it a long time ago.

Holodomor has been created by the government of a political entity constituting at that time a part of a bigger country. Certain Nikita Khrushchev, Ukrainian, played an important role in the politics of Ukrainian SSR in the effect resulting in millions of deaths his fellow Ukrainians. Of course, Georgian Stalin also was important at that time.

At the very end the best piece of it.

Jews did not elect Nazis to govern in Germany.

Ukrainian peasantry and working class did elect Nikita Khrushchev, as earlier did elect communist rule as guaranteeing justice, employment, and end of hunger.

Maybe it is actually a good idea to talk more about Holodomor to Holocaust. To remember who created what.

I forgot to add that it was the same Nikita Khrushchev, expert in the field of agriculture, who later on ceded Crimea occupied by 95% Russians to Ukrainian SSR.

I have a good grasp of history, but today, this event is news to me. I guess there are probably many more details that got "lost" during the last century. Beware of censorship by ommission?

I would like to know why the map of the countries which officially recognise the holomodor as an act of genocide showed on tfd is radically different than that showed on the wikipedia

HOLODOMOR : The famine-genocide of Ukraine, 1932-1933.



On November 28th 2006, the Verkhovna Rada (Parliament of Ukraine) passed a decree defining the Holodomor as a deliberate Act of Genocide. Although the Russian government continues to call Ukraine's depiction of the famine a "one-sided falsification of history," it is recognized as genocide by approximately two dozen nations, and is now the focus of considerable international research and documentation.
