Take everything, make sure not one piece of grain is left! Do you understand?! MARSH!
Mama..? What going on?
Shhh.. it's going to be okay..
GIVE ME YOUR FOOD! YOUR CROPS! EVERYTHING OR YOU DIE!
Ukraine had one of the best wheat systems in the world. Their soil was very fertilized making it great for growing crops.
Joseph Stalin was a Soviet revolutionary and politician of Georgian ethnicity governing the Soviet Union. He wanted to take away all the crops from Ukraine and take every piece of grain back to Russia to grow for himself.
COME WITH ME OR I SHOOT HER!
Russian Soldiers forced Ukrainians to give all of their food to them. If they refused, they would be tortured or instantly killed.
GO WITHOUT US!
Many Ukrainians that were killed were placed in wagons and dumped in ditches. Others that were alive were left to starve.
Innocent people and kids were tortured, starved, and were killed by the Russian Armies.
When people tried to cross the border, they were shot dead or captured. About 9-15 million Ukrainians died from this tragic event.
