Holodomor Survivor Ganna Frontenko shares famine story

Published on Apr 13, 2021
Holodomor (derived from морити голодом, moryty holodom, 'to kill by starvation') is а genocide of Ukrainian nation committed in 1932-1933. It was committed by leadership of the Soviet Union in order to suppress Ukrainians obedient and the ultimate elimination of Ukrainian opposition regime including efforts to build an independent from Moscow Ukrainian State. Desperate hunger drove people to sell off all of their possessions for any food they could find.

This horrific artificial famine eliminated 7 million people in the Ukrainian SSR and 3 million of Ukrainians abroad in the regions which were historically populated by Ukrainian: Kuban, the North Caucasus, Lower Volga and Kazakhstan. Some scholars believe that the famine was planned by Joseph Stalin to eliminate a Ukrainian independence movement.

In 2006 by the Law of Ukraine "About the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine" Holodomor was recognized as genocide against Ukrainian people. In 2010, by the resolution of Court of Appeal in Kyiv region was proved the genocidal nature of Holodomor, the intention of Stalin, Molotov, Kaganovich, Postyshev, Chubar, Khatayevych, Kosior to destroy a part of the Ukrainian nation.

We thank Ganna Frontenko of blessed memory who chose to share her story. By sharing her stories Ganna has ensured that the truth of the Holodomor will be forever documented in the history books. This movie reveals how Joseph Stalin starved millions in Ukrainian famine. Please share this important story as much as you can. THANK YOU.
