Of Despair" is an outstanding, highly recommended, documentary
video produced by Slavko Nowjtski several years ago about the Great
Soviet-Ukraine Famine of 1932-1933. This video is now available

Called the forgotten Holocaust--when Stalin was dumping millions
of tons of wheat on Western markets, while in Ukraine, men, women
and children were starving at the rate of 25,000 per day. Seven
to ten million people perished in a famine caused by ruthless decree.
Rare archival footage and intensely moving eye-witness accounts
of survivors and noted authorities. Roughly one-quarter of the population
of Ukraine perished through brutal starvation. "Harvest of Despair",
through its stark, haunting images, provides the eloquent testimony
and leaves a legacy for future generations.
The documentary is available in English or Ukrainian. The $ 25.00
included postage and handling.
