Americans are celebrating Thanksgiving, but Ukrainians are remembering Holodomor, the horrific famine in 1932-1933 when the policies of Stalin led to the deliberate starvation of millions of Ukrainians at the rate of twenty-five thousand peasants per day.  Can you conceive of that number?

The great historian of the Soviet Terror, Robert Conquest, has noted that this genocide had two terrible effects: over the next decade or so, more than ten million peasants died.  At the same time, the Communists who oversaw the mass murder were brutalized into becoming bureaucrats for whom terror was an acceptable, normal method of carrying out “the revolution”.  Chilling!

Michael Ledeen invites us to remember, and to put the blame where it belongs.

I have visited Kiev twice and looked at evidence of the Holodomor, which the Ukrainians have wisely collected, organized, and publicized.

And people claim that religious people have been responsible for widespread killing. Stalin’s atheistic regime deliberately put to death many more people than have ever been killed because of religious views.
