Holodomor: To Inflict Death by Hunger

By Yushchenko's Presidential decree, yesterday, November 26th was deemed a national day of remembrance of the victims of the Holodomor and political repressions. A country-wide moment of silence was observed at 16:00. "Neeka's backlog" has a link to the Wikipedia entry for the Holodomor. I've been aware of the famine, of course, but it's been a long time since I read anything about it. Also when people talk about Walter Duranty I finally know the full story.
