"German lawmakers have put forth a resolution to raise awareness of the 1932-1933 famine that led to the deaths of millions of Ukrainians as a result of Soviet leader Josef Stalin's policies", reads a recent article on "Deutsche Welle".
so-called “Holodomor” is one of the most favorite subjects of
anti-communist sovietologists and historians around the world, being for
decades at the forefront of the imperialist propaganda against Stalin
and the Soviet Union. The mythology of anti-communism attributes the
famine to a supposedly organized plan of the Bolsheviks aimed to
exterminate the Ukrainian people in order to force the rural population
to accept the Collectivization. But, what is the truth?
true that during the 1932-1933 period, Ukraine went through a great and
extremely painful for the people famine. But the famine wasn't a
deliberately organized conspiracy of the Bolsheviks for the
extermination of the Ukrainian population. There are specific,
historically confirmed, reasons that led to the famine.
The civil war unleashed by the Kulaks and other reactionary groups against the Collectivization policy led to disasters. In this contexts, the Kulaks and their allies carried out extensive sabotages, destroyed agricultural machinery and production, put obstacles to harvesting, killed animals, etc. Between 1929 and the mid-1930s, more than 1,800 terrorist acts were carried out.

anti-communist conspiracy theory behind the Holodomor has been proved to
be a well-crafted propaganda by the Nazis which penetrated into the
American Press in 1930s (see “Chicago American”, William Randolph
Hearst) and from there was spread widely, within the context of the Cold
War campaign against the Soviet Union.
One of the best works that have exposed the anti-communist conspiracy theory on the Ukrainian Famine is Douglas Tottle's 1987 book "Fraud Famine and Fascism" (click to download). Furthermore, a number of bourgeois historians and specialists on Russian history (e.g. Mark Tauger, R.W. Davies, St, Wheatcroft, etc) have challenged and debunked the false theory of "man-made famine".
