Holodomor Truth!

I am going to share one interesting piece of information with you guys. It is the holodomor truth! You might be wondering what is it about. It is nothing but the truth about 'Holodomor of 1932-1933'. Scholarly arguments and facts about the 'Golodomor' in the Soviet Union.

So now the first question that might strike your mind is, what is a holodomor? The term 'Golodomor' means the mass hunger or the great hunger that caused millions of victims throughout the Soviet Union in 1932-1933. It is estimated around 6-8 million peasants deaths during the famine of 1932-1933.

The Soviet famine of 1932-1933 affected most major grain-producing agricultural areas of the Soviet Union, including Northern Caucasus, Volga Region, South Urals, West Siberia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. The Communist governments of the Soviet Republics seized grains from the peasantry and exported most of their Republic's agricultural output to the West in order to sustain the rapid economic transformation "Industrialization" and "Collectivization", a policy designed by Joseph Stalin.

These were some of the quotes which I found in their website. They have many such interesting information and answers for questions like:

Was the Golodomor a genocide?

Golodomor or Holodomor?

Though it may not be the happiest piece of article for reading, it would still give a good read and something that will increase your general knowledge.
