Books and sources on Soviet mass starvings and/or genocide ?

Post by Mostowka » 21 Mar 2004 19:41

Have for a while been perplexed and confused on all figures regarding deaths of Soviet citizens since 1917, I am here reffering to people sent to Siberia, hunger in Ukraine (and elsewhere), the purges of Staling (all periods) - you often hear drasticlly diffrent numbers ranging from 10 million to 40.

My question is whether there are any well written and "realiable" books and reports on this topic ? You often hear about the Soviet crimes against their own population but there seem to be few references to any known works.

Any tips are most welcome ! :)
