The Worst of the Madness New York Review of Books, 11Nov2010; Anne Applebaum [W.Z.]
Although Anne Applebaum and the authors of Bloodlands and Stalin's Genocides do an admirable job of placing the politics associated with the Holodomor and World War II in a more realistic context, she (and perhaps the other two authors) fails to include the Ukrainian independence struggle during WWII into the equation. The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact of 23Aug1939 and the Katyn Massacre of April 1940 really were harbingers of things to come -- not only in Poland -- but in Western Ukraine, where the OUN-UPA resisted the Soviet-German-Soviet occupations and struggled for an independent Ukraine well into the 1950s.
The world is slowly starting to realize that the Holodomor was Stalin's (successful?) attempt to break the back of the independence movement in Eastern Ukraine. However, few people realize that the arrests, tortures, murders and especially the deportations to Siberia from 1944 to 1953 were Stalin's (partially-successful?) response to the OUN-UPA struggle for independence in Western Ukraine. Both events left the indigenous people traumatized, broken and resigned to their fate.

Despite having to work from a wheelchair, Volodymyr Katelnytsky was a professional journalist, who was very involved in Ukrainian affairs during the 1990's. As President of the Demjanjuk Defense Committee in Kyiv, he submitted an appeal on behalf of John Demjanjuk to the Supreme Court of Israel shortly before they overturned the guilty verdict of the lower court on 29Jul1993.
On the night of 07/08Jul1997, Mr. Katelnytsky and his 81-year-old mother were torture-murdered in their apartment in a most brutal fashion. His material on the John Demjanjuk case disappeared. Their murderers were never apprehended.
