Description

The Holodomor Reader is a wide-ranging collection of key texts and source materials, many of which have never before appeared in English, on the genocidal famine (Holodomor) of 1932–33 in Soviet Ukraine. The subject is introduced in an extensive interpretive essay, and the material is presented in six sections: scholarship; legal assessments, findings, and resolutions; eyewitness accounts and memoirs; survivor testimonies, memoirs, diaries, and letters; Soviet, Ukrainian, British, German, Italian, and Polish documents; and works of literature. Each section is prefaced with introductory remarks describing the contents. The book also contains a guide to further reading and a map.

Besides turning a spotlight on this human catastrophe, whose magnitude did not become generally apparent until the Soviet collapse, this book presents ample evidence that the Holodomor was a genocide perpetrated by Joseph Stalin and his henchmen. The Reader is an indispensable guide for all those interested in the Holodomor, genocide, or Stalinism.

The publication of this book has been funded by a generous donation from the estate of Edward Brodacky (1926–2007), who settled in London, England, after the Second World War.
