Holodomor (1932–1933)

The history of the Great Famine of 1932–33, known as the Holodomor, started
when the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin ordered the collectivisation of agriculture.
The term ‘Holodomor’ is often used to encompass the starvation of the farmers as
well as a broader assault on the Ukrainian nation, which included an attack on the
cultural, religious and political leadership of Ukraine, most of which was under
Soviet power at that time.
