Blade, Family, and Food: reupload_cop_99 . 16m Here's a handy little guide for everyone who questions the Holodomor's existence or status as a genocide. (ie. the edgy 13-year-old in the comments) Did the Holodomor happen? Yes (UN General Assembly)(Davies) (Graziosi)(Marples)(Shapoval)(Tauger) Was it a genocide? Yes (UN General Assembly)(Davies) (Graziosi)(Marples)(Shapoval) How many people died? This number is disputed due to Soviet censorship and lack of third-party figures. However, the generally accepted tally 7-10 million deaths from 1932-33 (UN General Assembly) [Note: Both Russia and Ukraine were signatories of this UN Joint Statement, and as such, support this figure] Were Ukrainians disproportionately affected? Yes (UN General Assembly)(Davies) (Graziosi)(Marples)(Shapoval). More than 55% of the victims of the famine were ethnic Ukrainians (Graziosi). However, as per the 1926 census, they made up only 21.22% of the USSR (Marples). In the Ukrainian SSR (UkrSSR), mortality rates increased 368% between 1926-33. In the USSR, they increased a mere 188% (Graziosi). this caused by the W environment? No (Davies)(Graziosi)(Marples)(Shapoval). The 1921-1922 famine was more intense in terms of the drought and the areas affected. However, it caused less than 25% of the deaths of the Holodomor (Graziosi). Additionally, the 1945 crop was smaller than the 1932 crop - however, there were no hunger-caused deaths comparable to the Holodomor. In other words, the problem wasn't the lack of food. Was the Holodomor used as a tool to repress perceived Ukrainian resistance movements? Yes (Davies)(Graziosi)(Marples)(Shapoval). Soviet leaders believed Ukraine was "teem[ing] with nationalist agents and Polish spies" (Stalin). Stalin also spoke of his fear of "losing Ukraine", and wanted to transform it into a "Bolshevik fortress" (Marples)(Graziosi). In an August 1932 letter to Lazar Kaganovich, Stalin stated that "Ukraine was now the main issue" [emphasis original] (Graziosi). Soviet authorities used the implementation as a tool to repress these perceived resistance movements. Collectivization in the UkrSSR was implemented much more quickly than elsewhere (despite the lack of any logical reason for doing so) and unreasonable grain quotas were immediately imposed on the Ukrainians (Marples). Local reports of famine quickly became apparent to Soviet leadership, as shown by Viacheslav Molotov's report that "today we have to face, even in grain-producing areas, the specter of famine" (Marples). However, the Politburo ignored these reports, stating that "procurement plans must be respected at all cost" (Graziosi). As the famine spread, Stalin wrote a directive called "On the Prevention of Mass Departures of Starving Peasants of Ukraine and the North Caucasus" (January 22nd, 1933). This prevented the migration of Ukrainian peasants, condemning them to death by starvation. In addition, no individuals were permitted to bring food products into the UkrSSR without the government's permission. No such ban was ever implemented in any other Soviet republic (Shapoval). If I still believe that the Holodomor didn't happen, what should I do? So you've decided to commit seppuku. Now what? To help you with the task, here is a handy tutorial. Enjoy! Step #1:Purchase a Sharp Sword! A dull blade can lead to ragged cutting and the expenditure of much "elbow grease" during the ceremony. Therefore, it is important that the sword be razor-sharp. Step #2:Find a Buddy! One of the most important parts of seppuku is the kaishaku, or assistant. The kaishaku's task is to slice off your head after you have completed the ceremony, and should therefore be a close friend, family member, or crudely jilted ex-lover. Step #3: Decide Where to Die! You only die once, so the location of your seppuku ceremony should be as pleasant as possible. I suggest a sunny field, a well-tended garden, or the pleasantly air-conditioned lobby of an upscale office building Step #4: Go for It! Kneel down in your chosen location and slowly insert the sword into your abdomen. The desired spot is about three inches left or right of your navel, depending on which hand you use. Once the sword is inserted, gently slice it across your stomach, then upward toward your chest. Remove sword when finished Step #5: Inspect Your Work! If done properly, most of your internal organs should have spilled out across your lap. If no internal organs are visible, repeat act until the job has been done correctly. Once finished, your kaishaku should then lop off your head in one clean blow Davies,R.W., and S. G. Wheatcroft. The Years of Hunger: Soviet Agriculture, 1931-1933. Palgrave Macmillan, 2009.
