Today is Holodomor remembrance day.
The Holodomor is the planned starvation of the Ukrainian people in the 1930s by the Soviets in order to force them to submit to Stalinism. It was the genocide famously denied by Walter Duranty of the New York Times.
Virtually no Americans know about this. Millions died yet this horror has been swept down the memory hole. My Russian professor in college was a survivor of the Holomodor. She told stories of her mother sneaking out at night, just to find a little dropped grain, so she could feed her daughter. She snuck out at night because the penalty for scavenging for food was death.
