Holocaust and Genocide Studies

A guide to resources on the Holocaust and other instances of genocide


The Holodomor was a man-made famine of biblical proportions that took place in Ukraine in 1932-1933. The death toll of 5-7 million has led to comparisons with the Holocaust. It resulted from policies of agricultural collectivization and aggressive quotas levied by the Soviet government, which were staunchly resisted by the Ukrainian peasantry ("Ukraine," Encyclopedia Britannica).
