Movie review: 'Bitter Harvest' tells little-known story of Soviet atrocity

Not many people are familiar with the word "Holodomor." Not in the same way that we're familiar with the word "Holocaust." But a genocide is a genocide, even when kept secret. The truth is that up to 10 million Ukrainians died in a man-made famine in 1932-1933 under Josef Stalin's singular brand of Communist fascism: He crushed Ukrainian resistance and attempts at independence by demanding every last speck of grain from "The Bread Basket of Europe" and denying foreign aid. The regime claimed the deaths were caused by "malnutrition," and the truth about the Holodomor wasn't known until the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. In 2003, it was finally acknowledged by the United Nations.
