The Holodomor was about killing millions of people in the Ukraine for the exact same reason that Mao killed tens of millions of Chinese farmers. Because Communist ‘science’ required it. Which is never mentioned in the movie at all.Last night I had the chance to watch the docu-drama, Mr. Jones.
In fact there was no communist or Soviet iconography in the film, which was in fact as ubiquitous as Nazi icons were in Nazi Germany. (Early Nazi art was actually taken from Soviet art as we learn in The Soviet Story. A more real attempt to educate rather than deflect.)
While on the one hand, it is refreshing to see any pop culture reference to the Holomodor, something which pretty much no one knows about thanks in no small part to the subject of Mr. Jones, a certain historical class monster, Walter Durante, it is highly disturbing that at no point do they say why it happened.
