Stalin- not Hitler for a welcome change

The Communists starved the Ukrainians under Stalin. The New York Times via Walter Duranty, covered up their crimes. Bitter Harvest is a fictional action- drama based on one man's story that lived through it. Now, finally a movie that is not about Hitler (national socialism) but about the real threat America faces from the left- International socialism ( communism) - still being covered up by the same lying media. Walter Duranty is best known for his stringent denial of the genocide of the Ukrainian people, known as Holodomor. Duranty refused to report on the man-made famine that killed up to twelve million people. Duranty also claimed other journalists who reported the truth of the USSR, such as Malcolm Muggeridge and Gareth Jones, were liars. Muggeridge went on to call Duranty "the greatest liar I have met in journalism." Some of Duranty's most well known lies and falsehoods about Holodomor are: "There is no famine or actual starvation nor is there likely to be." --New York Times, Nov. 15, 1931, page 1 "Any report of a famine in Russia is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda." --New York Times, August 23, 1933 "Enemies and foreign critics can say what they please. Weaklings and despondents at home may groan under the burden, but the youth and strength of the Russian people is essentially at one with the Kremlin's program, believes it worthwhile and supports it, however hard be the sledding." --New York Times, December 9, 1932, page 6 "You can't make an omelet without breaking eggs." --New York Times, May 14, 1933, page 18 "There is no actual starvation or deaths from starvation but there is widespread mortality from diseases due to malnutrition." --New York Times, March 31, 1933, page 13 Duranty also admitted privately that the genocide was happening. Bruce S. Thornton wrote: Walter Duranty stands as perhaps the quintessential fellow-traveler, killing news reports of famine and writing that Ukrainians were "healthier and more cheerful" than he had expected, and that markets were overflowing with food—this at the height of Stalin's slaughter of the kulaks.

Let's Speak Aloud about Fascism

Well known stories like Hitler Fascism and Holocost. SO MANY FILMS ABOUT IT AND EXHIBITIONS.

However, The Biggest TRAGEDY in a history is HOLODOMOR that took place in last century in Ukraine. And until now there are not so many films or museums exhibitions yet.

This STORY is based on Director Family story where they got luck to run away from the hell. I expect new wave of films about this and as well I hope nothing like that would never happen at any corner of the planet...

You MUST watch it, but It will not be easy to watch this movie.... historical facts and one of the first movies about this page of history.

I watched this movie in cinema... Noone jew popcorn, people cryied... The movie makes you rethink and hunger to learn more about real history, a tragedy previously unknown nobody, until 1991 it was forbidden to talk about it and after many people were afraid, they could not believe USSR and Stalin regime finnished.

Director of the film made a great job, based on successful history of his family... to survive! And only God knows... the real number of death only in 1932-33, from 20 to 40 mln... dead and halfalive bodies were collected in villages of Ukraine and thrown in one big pit, where people were still half alive... hard to imagiine. The bread / wheat from ukrainian villages/cities were collected and taken to Moscow from where Stalin sold it out all over the globe, while Ukrainians had 0 seed to eat.

Now this must be shown in every school of the world. The tragedy must be told. We all hope nothing common will be repeated at any other point of the globe... but we still have some countries.... living in regimen where flow out of information is impossible.
