Bush Authorizes Memorial To Victims Of Ukraine Famine

By Aussiegirl

My parents lived through this man-made famine as children. They never forgot what they saw and experienced. It has been one of the forgotten genocides in history. I'm glad to see it is finally being acknowledged. Let's not forget that genocide is going on at this moment in Darfur.

Bush Authorizes Memorial To Victims Of Ukraine Famine - RADIO FREE EUROPE / RADIO LIBERTY: "October 14, 2006 -- President George W. Bush has signed a law that authorizes the construction on U.S. government land of a memorial to the millions who died in Soviet Ukraine due to dictator Joseph Stalin's forced collectivization policies in the early 1930s.

The law authorizes the Ukrainian government to build the memorial in Washington.
The law says the 1932-33 famine that killed millions was manmade, not the result of natural causes, and that Stalin and those around him committed 'genocide' against Ukraine.
