Editorial Reviews

"Harvest of Despair" documents the Ukrainian terror famine of 1932-33, which caused the deaths of 7,000,000 people. Using interviews with survivors and scholars to supplement rare photographic evidence, it established that the terror famine was deliberately created by the Soviet Government as part of Stalin's decades-long effort to destroy the Ukrainian peasantry, who resisted the forced collectivization of their lands. Since its original release, it has received many international awards (including an Academy Award nomination) and has been featured on William F. Buckley's Firing Line program on the PBS television network. A powerful film, "Harvest of Despair" provides rare insight into one of this century's least-known but most vicious genocides.

B&W, 55 minutes.

This is a superb documentary of what happened in the Ukraine in 1932-33. Done to them by the Russians because of the greed and the cruelty of the Russians. Everyone should know this history of the Ukraine.

This is a riviting movie about the Ukrainian Holocaust, "Death by Starvation"! My mother is a Holocause survivor. Unbelievable how Durante of the New York Times chose to "NOT REPORT" this horrifying time to the American people and then he got a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting! A travesty for the NY Times to not "give-up" the Pulitzer Prize for the "cover-up"! I highly recommend this movie for all to see! It is something that should & will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN! 10 million Ukrainians perished by this famine. 10,000 villages were decimated!

Unfortunately, there was no Nuremberg trial for the Russians. Controlling information was the Communist regime's specialty, so relatively few are aware of the planned starvation of the Ukranians in 1932-1933. Holodomor killed 7 million...watch and learn!

This video is so indescribable that it is almost impossible to put words to this
absolutely disgraceful disgusting and completely incomprehensible degrading behaviour
of the perpetrators ,the soviet thugs, the Red Army, from Russia.
It is was with tearful horror that one watched the unfolding of this tragedy, in this video .
Free Gulags being brutalised by Godless thugs whose only desire was greed and the
death of the victims by slow painful starvation .
How could any man starve another to death to steal his property.
The only reason they seem to have prospered at this ,is, that they were state sponsered.
This raises the issue of why have these perpetrators never been prosecuted for War crimes.
Freedom always seems to come at a price and the price for the Gulag was His life.
Any freedom loving person needs to see this video so the complete hypocrisy of the
soviet ideal, is exposed, for all to see and for those who are thinking of meddling,
take up a more worth while direction in your life.

I found this video in the library at Taegu American Highschool in South Korea. At that time I was teaching government and US History. I found it very beneficial in both classes and it made my students stop and think about how fortunate we really are in America.

Watched it with a Korean missionary to the Ukraine. She cried and had many comments over how people she knew shared the same stories with her. Good job.
