My Dearest Dido - The Holodomor Story is a haunting account of the innocent victims of Stalin's vicious regime. In the name of communism, Stalin and his armed units branded Ukrainians traitors and tortured, beat, starved, and shot them - often for the simple crime of eating stalks of grain. This heart-breaking record is based on the voices of survivors and told through letters between Dido Bohdan and his granddaughter Hanusia. Dido was a child during the 1932-1933 Holodomor. The Great Ukrainian Famine was a five-year plan engineered by Stalin that starved millions of people. Stalin attempted to control Ukraine by destroying families, crushing communities, silencing media, and eradicating Ukrainian culture. Marion Mutala is the best-selling Canadian author of the "Baba's Babushka" books. This award-winning series explores and celebrates Ukrainian culture and traditions.
