FYI: This is absolutely not true. I wouldn’t go so far as the guy above and say it’s Nazi propaganda, but just check the threads on /r/AskHistorians to see that there are a variety of factors that cause the Holodomor to not really be considered a genocide by most historians today.
The idea that the Holodomor - in all its tragedy - is comparable to the Holocaust is something that’s been weaponized by Ukrainian nationalists, though. Even though it isn’t really true.
When I say it's nazi propaganda I mean that Goebbels used it to fear monger against the bolsheviks, usually exaggerating/making up details.
Great standard to have “not really a genocide”
I don’t know what you mean.
Either something is or isn’t a genocide. There are various characteristics regarding intentionality that this entails. In general, historical consensus is that the Holodomor is not a genocide.
Ukrainian nationalists will tell you otherwise, but that isn’t standard historical consensus. That’s all I’m saying.
