Slide 1: ==== ==== All about collectivism, please check this website: http://EzineArticles.com/ http://EzineArticles.com/ ==== ==== This article is about Soviet Holodomor -- the famine genocide of 1932-1933 that took the lives of millions Ukrainians. My interest in this historical event was triggered by an exhibit in The Ukrainian Museum in New York City. I was impressed by a poster based on 115 letters received by the Central Committee of the Ukrainian Communist Party. Some of them were addressed to Stalin. These were returned from Moscow to Ukraine with orders to punish the writers as enemies of the people. One of the authors, Mykola Reva, wrote: "Dear Joseph Vasirionovich [Stalin]; because you are our friend, teacher and father, I had a bold idea of writing to you the whole truth... The grain lay in storehouses while people were dying of starvation. And at the same time you, Joseph Vasirionovich, said that people are the most valuable capital." For writing this letter, Mykola Reva was sentenced to six years in prison. Another letter to Stalin written by a party member, in the name of students of the Technical School of Chemistry and Technology (Dnepropetrovsk), also described the worsening situation. It is clear that the authors believed that Stalin was not informed about what was going on. The letter ends "with communist greetings, I await your reply." The reply probably came in the form of an arrest and a long term gulag sentence. Some scholars argue that Holodomor should not be called genocide. Ukrainians, they say, were not the only ethnic group that was targeted. I do not know how many non-Ukrainians also lost their lives during collectivization, when grain and farm animals were forcefully taken away from those who resisted. Would the term mass murder be more acceptable to those scholars? How things are called is less important than what they are. According to Wikipedia, "Modern estimates for the total number of casualties of the famine within Soviet Ukraine range between 2.2 million (demographers' estimate) and 3-3.5 million (historians' estimate) though much higher figures are often quoted by the media and cited in political debates." To what extent was the second Soviet famine due to the forced collectivization and to what extent was it a punishment for anti-Soviet and nationalistic aspirations? I think that both factors were important. Unfavorable weather conditions might have contributed to the famine. The main factors, however, were political decisions of Bolsheviks. Stalin never recognized that the policy of collectivization was an error. His simply denied the reality of the famine. And he had a system for dealing with those who dared to disagree. Constant food shortages in the Soviet Union, and in other countries in which collectivization was introduced, confirmed that communist agrarian policy was based on a fundamental doctrinal error. It was an attempt to implement utopia by force. It's ironic--and tragic-that most of those who suffered had supported Lenin's revolution because individual ownership of land was promised to them.
