PLUS: What particularly occurred in: the Famine of 1932-33; the "Polish Operation"; the "Great Terror"; the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact; the "Soviet invasion of Poland"; the "Katyn Massacre"; the Warsaw rebellion; and "Stalin's Anti-Semitism" (ISBN: 978-0-692-20099-5) through Grover Furr

"Bloodlands. Europe among Hitler and Stalin, by way of Timothy Snyder" (N.Y: simple Books, 2010) is by means of a long way the main profitable try and date to equate Stalin with Hitler, the Soviet Union with Nazi Germany. It has acquired dozens of rave experiences, prizes for historiography; and has been translated into 25 languages.

Snyder's major objective is Joseph Stalin. His broader declare is that the Soviets killed 6 to nine million blameless civilians whereas the Nazis have been killing approximately 14 million. Snyder reveals parallels among Soviet and Nazi crimes at each flip.

Grover Furr methodically checked each footnote to whatever that may be construed as a criminal offense through Stalin, the USSR, or pro-Soviet communists. Snyder's major assets are in Polish and Ukrainian, in hard-to-find books and articles. Many assets are reprinted in Blood Lies of their unique languages - Polish, Ukrainian, German, Russian - regularly with English translations.

Furr has came upon that each unmarried "crime" Snyder alleges is fake - a fabrication. usually Snyder's resources don't say what he claims. usually Snyder cites anticommunist Polish and Ukrainian secondary assets that do the mendacity for him. now not a unmarried accusation holds up.
Blood Lies exposes the lies and falsehoods in the back of Soviet background of the Stalin interval with a similar meticulous realization to element as Furr's 2011 paintings "Khrushchev Lied," and his 2013 e-book "The homicide of Sergei Kirov."
