The results were simply devastating. As rural families gave preference to their children with any remaining morsels of food, the parents perished first, suffering a slow and hideous death before the eyes of their children. An exodus of desperate, starving orphans followed, wandering the countryside in search of food, en route to the cities.
In Kharkiv City alone, around ten thousand orphans were hidden away by the Soviet authorities, in the vast hangars of the Kholodnaya Gora Buildings.
This Terror Famine in the Ukraine, known as ‘The Holodomor’ claimed an estimated six millions lives in a single year, and is the setting for William Spencer’s astonishing new novel THE WAY OF VENGEANCE, a story of passion, courage and survival against impossible odds.
"I chose The Holodomor as the backdrop to my novel in memory of my late mother-in-law, who was a childhood survivor of this terror famine, and also to commemorate the vast loss of Ukrainian lives during this national tragedy of Holocaust proportions, that is surprisingly little know in the western world," said the Author, who spent more than two thousand hours of research and writing on the five star acclaimed project.
