What's worse? The Holocaust or Holodomor?
What people were responsible for each?
I asked what Holodmor was in Polls and Suveys.
A response: "Someone from Harry Potter"

Stalin was to blame for the Holodomor but the famine was also a consequence of the economic problems associated with changes implemented during the period of Soviet industrialization. If there were lots and lots to eat, and if the headmen were skillfull people would not perish.
In the case of the holocaust, people died not because the headmen were skilless and incompetent , but because they wanted to kill all who were jewish, gypsy,homosexual, ill, disabled., whatever.....

It's estimated about the same amount of people were killed during each. The Holomodor lasted less than 2 years but the Holocaust lasted at least 6 years. The people were killed by a much faster rate during the Holomodor so in that respect you could say the Holomodor was worse.
Stalin and the Communists were responsible for the Holomodor and Hitler and the Nazis were responsible for the Holocaust.

They were equally bad. You can't make value judgments about what genocide was worse. In terms of people killed, the Holocaust probably killed more people, but they both killed several million.
The primary person responsible for each was Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, respectively.

It was Europe-wide,targetted sevral different groups,was organized on an industrial scale with an industrial methodology,and was based on an absurd racial theory.
Which is not to say that the Holodomor was not brutal,terrible,and horrific - it's worth wider study and wider awareness.It was confined to one area of the Soviet Union,unlike the Hlocaust.
