Yes, the "Holodomor" is a fascist lie. It was regarded as such in the mid-1930s, when major fascist organizations such as those of Goebbels and Hearst invented it and promulgated it: even major bourgeois newspapers in the U$ rejected it as the rubbish that it was. After World War II, however, the imperialists revived it with plenty of help from the Ukrainian "nationalists", often of Nazi pedigree, whom they rehabilitated to serve as spies and propagandists against the international communist movement (especially the glorious Soviet Union). Tottle exposes the history of this fascist project right up into the mid-1980s, and an article that appeared in the <i>Village Voice</i> gave further details about fraudulent propaganda (a film, a set of textbooks, a whole institute at Harvard) produced to spread the lies through the schools, television, and elsewhere. In Kanada, an ethnically Ukrainian organization with a long communist heritage (it was in fact smashed by the Kanadian state decades ago but came back in a different form) also denounced it in a couple of articles published in the late 1980s. Unfortunately, I don't have copies of the Kanadian group's articles.

Please do not use the word "Holodomor", which only lends the lie legitimacy. The word was designed to look like <i>Holocaust</i> so as to suggest that the great Soviet Union had targeted Ukrainians for extinction in the manner of the Nazis' genocidal program. It is not a standard term from historiography (see the references to bourgeois scholarship posted here by other comrades); it's just a piece of bourgeois propaganda that we should reject.
