Seven million died in the 'forgotten' holocaust
#2
I think that it's good you brought this to light.  I think we should remember all the victims of Stalinism in our prayers in addition to all those millions murdered by the Nazis.

Although simplifying the history a bit, I think Margolis correctly states the reasons why the Ukrainian famines and other Soviet genocides have been forgotten.  The West liberated some of Hitler's concentration camps, so we got to see those.  The West didn't get to see the gulags.  Sure, our governments knew what was going on (and either ignored it because of World War II or they didn't wish to escalate the Cold War).
