Eyewitness to the Horror: Gareth Jones and the Holodomor in Ukraine - Politics


"We are waiting for death," said Ukrainian peasants to British journalist Gareth Jones in 1933. In the same year, he made Stalin's Holodomor crime public. Now a biography traces his short life.

The attack of Putin's Russia on the Ukraine brought the term Holodomor back into consciousness. 90 years ago, Stalin starved Ukraine to further industrialization. The tragedy, whose victims are estimated at three to seven million people, went down in history as "killing by starvation". A biography now reports on the British Gareth Jones, who was the first Western eyewitness to make the horrible death public.
