  1. You should read the [The Gulag Archipelago](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gulag_Archipelago)

    HORRIFIC ACCOUNT of this exactly.

    It’s as bad if not worse as the Holocaust. Related directly to this and Stallin in The USSR/Russia

    It’s not typically taught in United States schools… But what went on during that era in Communist Russia was nothing less than the most horrific type of evil one could possibly imagine.

    I’m not sure if my comparison to the holocaust is even accurate because that event of course was unbelievably horrific to even imagine… That’s such a thing could happen…

    But you should check out the above link… That book will change your life.

    I don’t think it’s possible to truly understand the depth of what a human being or a culture of human beings are capable of in terms of inflicting pure evil on others until you read that book.

  2. A large portion of them were deported to the soviet state of Kazakhstan. In fact decades later, a Khazak Olympic skater of Korean heritage won the Bronze figure skating medal at, ironically, the Seoul Winter Olympics in Korea.

  3. Check out the nazino tragedy, also known as cannibal island. Tragedy is too soft term in my opinion, considering it was done on purpose not on accident. Marxism is such a wonderful source of atrocities.
