The Ukrainian genocide famine of 1932-33, or Holodomor, was one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century. It was the direct result of a plan formulated by the Soviet regime to destroy the Ukrainian people. Stalin’s inner circle formulated as horrific plan: in the winter of 1932/33 all food supplies in Ukraine were taken away. Huge cordon was created so that nobody can leave. People were not allowed into the cities. Special guard-squads prevented the dying, starving people from boarding the trains. So, many died right in the railway stations, and by the railways leading to Kharkov, Kyiv, Krasnodar. In the space of ONE year, 7 million people were starved to death. Mankind has never seen a more efficient extermination program than the one in Ukraine during the winter of 1932 and 33. „The Soviet Story” is an award-winning documentary by director Edvins Snore that covers in detail the Ukrainian genocide famine.
