................"The special contribution of the editors of this book, Marco
Carynnyk, Lubomyr Luciuk, and Bohdan Kordan, is to have uncovered
contemporary descriptions of the famine relayed to the West in British
diplomatic pouches. Largely ignored or suppressed at the time, and
forgotten since, these urgent messages now constitute one of the most
important sources we have of this colossal human tragedy. Much of the
information is these pages comes from the simple accounts of a variety
of observers--British diplomats and consular officials, of course , but also
of relief workers, trade officials, newspaper correspondents and the like.
Much also is the "cri de coeur" of the starved and outcast, who managed
to communicate their terrible experiences directly to outsiders who must
have appeared to them as creatures from another planet.........."
