A survivor’s account of Ukraine’s great famine in the 1930s, the Holodomor, when sev­er­al mil­lion peo­ple died. The mass killing of Ukrain­ian Jews by Nazi Ger­many dur­ing World War Two, and how Artek, on the shores of the Black Sea in Crimea, became the Sovi­et Union’s most pop­u­lar hol­i­day camp.
