20 Million Souls
Stalin’s Red Holocaust and the siege-mobilized terror-command system that drove the killing machine epitomize Soviet dystopia. They mock all claims of utopian intent and accomplishment. The proof long eluded researchers, but the archival revolution which began in Gorbachev’s waning days ﬁnally produced the smoking gun. We now know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there were millions of indictable Soviet crimes against humanity 1929-38, and additional millions 1939-53. We now know as well beyond a reasonable doubt that there were more than 13 million Red Holocaust victims 1929-53, and that this ﬁgure could rise above 20 million.
