Called the forgotten Holocaust - when Stalin was dumping millions of tons of wheat on Western markets, while Ukraine, men, women and children were dying of starvation at a rate of 25,000 a day. Seven to ten million people perished in a famine caused by ruthless decree. Rare archival footage and intensely moving eye-witness accounts of survivors and noted authorities. Roughly one-quarter of the population of Ukraine perished through brutal starvation. HARVEST OF DESPAIR, through its stark, haunting images provides the eloquent testimony and leaves a legacy for future generations. In 1985, the film won First Prize at the Houston International Festival.
