There is a great piece in today's Daily Mail (London, England) on Ukraine's Great Hunger of 1932/33, and attempts by the Ukrainian government to have the famine declared a genocide. This is relevant to Volhynia, because many of us had family members caught up in what happened.

I have placed a link to the Daily Mail story on the main page at http://www.volhynia.com .

I have also added to the Volhynia site a newspaper story from 1933. It quotes the publisher of the Vancouver Sun, who went to the Soviet Union that year to see what life was life. He is no Walter Duranty, but he is cut from the same cloth.
