On Saturday, Nov. 24, 2007, Ukraine will mark the 75th anniversary of the terrible famine of 1932-33 in which millions of Soviet citizens perished. But this mass starvation was no act of nature: it was engineered by Stalin and Soviet authorities to force stubborn peasants to give up their privately held plots of land and join collective farms. Now President Viktor Yushchenko is leading efforts to seek international recognition of the tragedy as an act of genocide. (AP Photo/Krasylivka School Museum, HO)
