Transcript of 8 Stages Of Genicide

"Why them? Who was there to help?" Stalin's forced famine Genocide is the mass extermination of a certain type of group. The "Holodomor" (extermination by hunger) happened in the Ukraine in 1932-1933 When and Where? Joesph Stalin the Soviet Union Dictator was a very paranoid man who often thought that authority leaders, political enemies and common people were out to get him. He viewed them as potential threats. His reason for killing so many people was political, as well as inability to care for people.So he would kill those whom he thought would try to overthrow him from power, Stalin wanted collectivization of the harvest in Ukraine to support industrialization in the Soviet Union. the Ukrainians resisted to collectivization and they had revolted to Stalin's power. Stalin forced famine among the country, killing millions.Stain was a psychopath,he knew the people he ruled over were starving, he knew it would breed a conspiracy to oust him, in his mind, he was doing them both a favor. Many others he had killed was to instill fear in others that may have opposed him in any way. why the genocide happened. Ukrainians,Cossacks(are a group of predominantly East Slavic people who originally were members of democratic, semi-military and semi-naval communities in Ukraine and Southern Russia.), military leaders, and the Kulaks(the higher-income farmers who had larger farms than most Russian peasants).These are all of Stalin's victims who suffered. Who were the victims and the perpetrators? 8 stages of Genocide What is GENOCIDE? The Worlds Reaction Facts and Statistics The people of ukraine wrote books, pamphlets, and articles. No one payed any attention ot them because of academics. the genocide is barely mentioned, when it is in the books it is called a famine, not a genocide. What finally got the worlds attention is the doctumentary "Harvest of Dispair", It was played some televison networks. Again in 1986 the genocide was recognized with the book "The Harvest of Sorrow" by Professor Robert Conquest. He studied the genocide and its history. In 1987 they admitted to the famine, they were going to publish another book but Moscow had changed the policy, and no book was ever published and the famine was kept silent once again. Still today the new president of Russia rejects that it was a genocide because the victims were random, and a lot of people in Ukraine still don't know about the genocide that Stalin had created. Victims Perpetrators The KGB ( Komitet gosudarstvennoy bezopasnosti)The KGB was the intelligence and internal security agency of the former Soviet Union. The KGB kept an eye on public and private opinions,and possible revolutionary plots within Russia. They were secret undercover police. And also Stalin the leader of the soviet union.

Classification- Step 1
Ukraine had thought of themselves as separate from the Russian identity, with a very distinctive Ukrainian culture. They could be classified by their race and the location of the land they inhabited, making them easy targets.


Symbolization- Step 2
Symbolization wasn't huge in the Holodomor, but anyone who resisted was classified as a *kulak, and Ukrainian peasants were easy to identify, because of were they lived.

Dehumanization- Step 3
Ukrainians were deemed as traitors to the Soviet Union and as such were beneath the Russians. Many Ukrainians who ventured into the city in search of food were violently turned back by Soviet Union supporters. For their apparent betrayal of the Soviet Union's unification of Russia, they were considered to be subhuman and beneath the Russians help.

Organization- Step 4
The entire genocide was organized by the state, with the diversion of food awy from this class a direct intention.


Polarization- Step 5
Stalin raised the quota of grain production by 44%, taking away the Ukrainian peasants food source and income. Stalin set up blockades and checkpoints in many of the rural villages and on the Ukrainian/Polish border to prevent peasants from crossing over into Poland for food. This effectively cut Ukraine off from any international aid and also, let the western world feign ignorance to the rising death toll.

Preparation- Step 6
Mass deportation of Ukraine’s intelligencia, anyone with influence was a threat.

Extermination- Step 7
Regulation of December 6 1932 (for villages considered to be "underperforming"). Stalin placed a ban on supply of any goods or food, requisition of any food or grain found on site, ban of any trade, and confiscation of all financial resources) led to millions dying of starvation and disease, furthermore thousands were sentenced to death under an unfair judicial process.

Denial- Step 8
Denial was prominent during the famine, and though there were some accounts of the millions starving, Stalin denied the existence of any such genocide. Very few foreign journalists were allowed into the Soviet Union during this time, one those journalists was Pulitzer-prize winner Walter Duranty. He is most notable for his fervent denial of any famine taking place in the Ukraine. He is infamously quoted for saying, “Any report of a famine in Russia today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda. There is no actual starvation or deaths from starvation, but there is a widespread mortality from diseases due to malnutrition.” Roughly translated this means, that Ukrainians weren’t dying from lack of food; they were just eating the wrong type of food. Even now, many countries, including Russia do not recognize Holodomor as genocide. There are only a small number that do recognize the Holodomor, one of them is Canada.
