In the spring of 1933, the rural population of Ukraine was dying at a rate of 25,000 a day, half of them children. The land that was known worldwide as the breadbasket of Europe was being ravaged by an artificial famine of unprecedented scale engineered by Stalin and his hangmen.

Let’s not forget the millions of innocent victims of that horrific man-made event.
