Anne Applebaum is an American journalist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author who extensively writes about communism. In "Red Famine" she studies the 1929 Joseph Stalin's policy on agricultural collectivization which forced millions of peasants off their land and onto collective farms. The result was a catastrophic famine, the most lethal in European history with at least five million people dying between 1931-1933. Applebaum argues that more than 3 million of those dead were Ukrainians who perished not because they were accidental victims of a bad policy, but because the state deliberately set out to kill them. She sheds the light on Holodomor- a famine, artificially created on Stalin's orders, in order to destroy the Ukrainian independence movement. Now in paperback format
