Considering that my mother was Ukrainian and that her mother came to Canada
in the 1890s during the mass exodus of the Doukhobours I find the following
article by Eric Margolis rather a fitting rebuttal to all the endless
Zionist-controlled media hullabaloo over the paramount importance of the "Jewish" holocaust and their relentless efforts to make their plight always
No. 1. Even more so, they tend to steer people¹s thinking toward the absurd
notion that their persecution and suffering was somehow the only one and any
other nation's genocide is either irrelevant or unworthy of mention.
Thanks to Eric Margolis' article below we can readily see that that this is
not the case. One point from Mr. Margolis' article is particularly
note-worthy during these times of massive seed patenting and hoarding by the
world's powerful elite. Many people argue that they are purposefully trying
to gain control of all seed production so they can, in turn, exploit the
masses and charge exorbitant prices for food. When one realizes what Stalin
and his Zionist controllers did to the Ukrainian nationalists of the 1930s
the thought occurs that possibly they have more than high food costs in mind
when it comes to controlling the people and their food sources. Coupled with Kissinger's public statement that it is imperative that millions of
"useless eaters" be eliminated from the world's population, it gives one
pause to reflect.
Thank you Mr. Margolis for bringing to people¹s attention one of the more
blatant acts of genocide inflicted upon the non-Jewish people of the
Ukraine. While your article is ten years old I feel the republishing of it
now is most apt.

In 1932, Soviet leader Josef Stalin unleashed genocide in Ukraine,
Stalin determined to force Ukraine's millions of independent farmers -
called kulaks - into collectivized Soviet agriculture, and to crush
Ukraine's growing spirit of nationalism.
Faced by resistance to collectivization, Stalin unleashed terror and
dispatched 25,000 fanatical young party militants from Moscow - earlier
versions of Mao's Red Guards - to force 10 million Ukrainian peasants into
collective farms. Secret police units of OGPU began selective executions of
When Stalin's red guards failed to make a dent in this immense number, OGPU
was ordered to begin mass executions. But there were simply not enough
Chekists (secret police) to kill so many people, so Stalin decided to
replace bullets with a much cheaper medium of death - mass starvation.
All seed stocks, grain, silage and farm animals were confiscated from
Ukraine's farms. (Ethiopia's Communist dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam used
the same method in the 1970s to force collectivization. The resulting
famine caused one million deaths.)
OGPU agents and Red Army troops sealed all roads and rail lines. Nothing
came in or out of Ukraine. Farms were searched and looted of food and fuel.
Ukrainians quickly began to die of hunger, cold and sickness.
When OGPU failed to meet weekly execution quotas, Stalin sent henchman Lazar
Kaganovitch to destroy Ukrainian resistance. Kaganovitch, the Soviet
Eichmann, made quota, shooting 10,000 Ukrainians weekly. Eighty per cent of
Ukrainian intellectuals were executed. A party member named Nikita
Khruschchev helped supervise the slaughter.
During the bitter winter of 1932-33, mass starvation created by Kaganovitch
and OGPU hit full force. Ukrainians ate their pets, boots and belts, plus
bark and roots. Some parents even ate infant children.
Britain, the U.S. and Canada were fully aware of the Ukrainian genocide and
Stalin's other monstrous crimes. (Soviet Leader Josef Stalin committed
genocide in the '30s, then became an ally against Hitler in the '40s)
The precise number of Ukrainians murdered by Stalin's custom-made famine and
Cheka firing squads remains unknown to this day. The KGB's archives and
recent work by Russian historians show at least seven million died.
Ukrainian historians put the figure at nine million or higher. Twenty-five
per cent of Ukraine's population was exterminated.
Six million other farmers across the Soviet Union were starved or shot
during collectivization. Stalin told Winston Churchill he liquidated 10
million peasants during the 1930s. Add mass executions by the Cheka in
Estonia, Lativia and Lithuania, the genocide of three million Muslims,
massacres of Cossacks and Volga Germans, and Soviet industrial genocide
accounted for at least 40 million victims, not including 20 million war
Kaganovitch and many senior OGPU officers (later, NKVD) were Jewish. The
predominance of Jews among Bolshevik leaders and the frightful crimes and
cruelty inflicted by Stalin's Checka on Ukraine, the Baltic states and
Poland led the victims of Red Terror to blame the Jewish people for both
communism and their suffering. As a direct result, during the subsequent
Nazi occupation of Eastern Europe, the region's innocent Jews became the
target of ferocious revenge by Ukrainians, Balts and Poles.
While the world is now fully aware of the destruction of Europe's Jews by
the Nazis, the story of the numerically larger holocaust in Ukraine has been
suppressed, or ignored. Ukraine's genocide occurred eight to nine years
before Hitler began the Jewish Holocaust and was committed, unlike Nazi
crimes, before the world's gaze. But Stalin's murder of millions was simply
denied or concealed by a left-wing conspiracy of silence that continues to
this day. In the strange moral geometry of mass murder, only Nazis are
Socialist luminaries like [George] Bernard Shaw, Beatrice and Sidney Webb and Premier
Edouard Herriot of France, toured Ukraine during 1932-33 and proclaimed
reports of famine were false. Shaw announced: "I did not see one
under-nourished person in Russia." New York Times correspondent Walter
Duranty, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his Russian reporting, wrote claims of
famine were "malignant propaganda." Seven million people were dying around
them, yet these fools saw nothing. The New York Times has never repudiated
Modern leftists do not care to be reminded their ideological and historical
roots are entwined with this century's greatest crime - the inevitable
result of enforced social engineering and Marxist theology.
Western historians delicately skirt the sordid fact that the governments of
Britain, the U.S. and Canada were fully aware of the Ukrainian genocide and
Stalin's other monstrous crimes. Yet they eagerly welcomed him as an ally
during the Second World War. Stalin, who Franklin Roosevelt called "Uncle
Joe", murdered four times more people than Adolph Hitler.
None of the Soviet mass murderers who committed genocide were ever brought
to justice. Lazar Kaganovitch died peacefully in Moscow a few years ago,
still wearing the Order of the Soviet Union and enjoying a generous state
