An Eyewitness Account of Genocide

Aussiegirl, the ever-brilliant author of Ultima Thule, has posted her mother`s account of the terrible famine in Ukraine during the early 1930`s. As you all should remember, this famine was an attempt at genocide by Uncle Joe Stalin, who wanted to be rid of the Ukrainian people. He cordoned off the country, shipped all of the food out, and waited for an entire nation to starve to death.

Aussiegirl writes:

Ukrainians call the genocidal famine “Holodomor”, which means “murder by famine”. At precisely 4 p.m. on Saturday, a national moment of silence was observed followed by the lighting of the candles.

I would like to honor the memories of those who died by publishing my own translation of my mother’s short memoir of those years. It is her testament to what she saw and experienced -- the death not only of millions of people, but of an entire way of life.

Go here to read this tremendous historical account.

Thanks for the kind remarks and the link, Tim. It's good to be reminded at Thanksgiving time of just how much we have to be thankful for in this great and rich and free country. God Bless America!!!
