Upon first reading the diary of Anne Frank, I have become interested in other "similar" types of narratives. Miron Dolot certainly gives us a captivating and sometimes heartwrenching account of when Stalin and his henchmen in Moscow carried out this policy against the poor Ukrainians during the early 1930s. This famine did not only effect Ukraine but Kazakhstan and possibly other areas as well. The story of the famine told by a young teenage boy is very insightful. Such a sorrowful chapter of history.
"Harvest of Sorrow" by Robert Conquest is another good book on the same subject. This one, however, is briefer compared to Conquest's book and can be read in the course of a weekend.
Dolot's book should be read by all interested in European history. I also agree, that it should be used in schools.

28 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Kurt A. Johnson on 9 July 2004
Format: Paperback
In 1929, Joseph Stalin ordered the collectivization of all Ukrainian farms. During the resulting upheaval, some seven million Ukrainians died of starvation. But, while it ended with mass starvation, the Soviet program of oppression started with property confiscation, arbitrary arrests, judicial and extrajudicial murder, and a whole constellation of unspeakable mistreatment.
One of the survivors of this holocaust was a young Ukrainian boy, who survived the conflagration and World War II, and succeeded in escaping to the United States. Written under the pseudonym of Miron Dolot, this heart-rending book tells the story of what he saw throughout the holocaust, and what he felt and thought.
I originally picked up this book because my own family, who were Russian Mennonites, left Ukraine before this time, but all of the relatives that stayed were annihilated to the last man, woman and child. Even so, I dare anyone to read this book and not be moved. The author does an excellent job of bringing the heartless insanity of this holocaust home to right where you live.
So, if you are interested in Russian or Ukrainian history, then I highly recommend this moving book to you.

24 of 27 people found the following review helpful By Solo Walker VINE VOICE on 4 Aug. 2004
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author describes life in his village during this period. Firstly, outsiders, urban dwellers appeared spouting the party line, endlessly calling meetings to browbeat with torrid, repetitive speeches from petty party officials the paradise of collective agriculture over independant farming.
This ultimately culminated in systematic slaughter and banishment of children, women and menfolk to hellish frozen wastelands. Most never ever returned.
The Communist party, not content with starving the populace into submission delved to new petty depths. They took all animals, seeds, machinery, horses, food and anything else the rural population held in high esteem. Pets such as cats and dogs were gunned down on the street. The Ukraine national symbol - the nightingale - unwittingly became the next victim - teams of shooters blasted it out of the sky, whilst Ukrainian farmers and their families starved, very slowly to death.
Read this and do not let the propogandists/politicians of any society lead us to believe what they are saying, let us judge with our own eyes.
Very best wishes to you all

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 18 May 1999
Format: Paperback
Miron Dolot (pseud.) lived through the 1930s famine in the Ukraine, and this book presents an unmoderated account of the horrors he observed. Dolot relates the misery of the peasants, the fear that dominated their lives, and the frightening indifference of communist agents. Before the end of the book, I was in tears. The descriptions of agents plundering food from people's homes, travelling roads lined with corpses, and arresting people for the pettiest offenses make this book a "must read" for anyone who has doubts about the intent of the government's policy.

Format: Paperback
I read this book carefully in a span of 24 hours. Surely this book has "legs", by which I mean word of mouth alone may be enough to someday put this book on the required reading lists of schools of some future era. This 231 page memoir is as powerful and as riveting as the best of fiction. It certainly provides one with a deeper understanding of George Orwell's "Animal Farm". If it is possible to recommend this book more than I am doing, it is only because I do not know how, that I do not.
