Beginning in 1917 and ending in the present day, Anne Applebaum’s new book tells the story of the famine engineered by Stalin in 1932-33 that was meant to destroy Ukraine.
Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine begins in 1917, with the Ukrainian revolution and the Ukrainian national movement that challenged Bolshevik rule. It ends in the present, with a discussion of the ongoing politics of memory in Ukraine. Red Famine bears witness to a genocide that killed nearly four million people, destroyed the aspirations of Ukraine for two generations and has real echoes in the politics of the present.
Anne Applebaum is Professor of Practice at the Institute for Global Affairs, LSE, and a columnist for the Washington Post. She divides her time between Britain and Poland.
