"While we do not have enough bread, the peasants should give a natural tax in the form of bread to the Soviet economy for fear of a merciless massacre." Leon Trotsky
The Holodomor (literal translation Death by hunger) was a man-made famine in the Ukrainian SSR, part of the Soviet famine of 1932–1933. During the famine, which is also known as the "terror-famine in Ukraine" and "famine-genocide in Ukraine", millions of Ukrainians died of starvation in a peacetime catastrophe unprecedented in the history of Ukraine.
It is not often mentioned in the news of the Russian invasion, but memories of it almost certainly animates the resistance the Ukrainians are putting up to the attack. These are a few pieces of Ukrainian artwork remembering the Holodomor.
