Red famine: Stalin’s war on Ukraine

by Anne Applebaum. First U.S. edition. New York: Doubleday. 2017

"Red Famine", a book about the Holodomor, (Ukrainian famine genocide of 1032-33) by Anne Applebaum “From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Gulag and the National Book Award finalist Iron Curtain, a revelatory history of one of Stalin’s greatest crimes–the consequences of which still resonate today ….”  (from the cover).

Red Famine is the most comprehensive analysis of the Holodomor in English since historian Robert Conquest’s Harvest of Sorrow in 1986.  It  brings much new archival research to light –  interspersed with chilling excerpts from victims, survivors, witnesses and perpetrators –  ultimately demonstrating the intentionality of Stalin’s genocide.
