*  The original has Holodomor in the plural, since there were in fact three “holodomors” or famines in Ukraine, all to some extent manmade and devastating in their effect.  Since the word Holodomor is finally becoming recognized in the world, it seems wiser to use Holodomor for the Famine of 1932-1933.  [translator’s note]
