The Welsh journalist Gareth Jones didn’t write, as expected by the Soviets, about the greatness of the Soviet Union. Instead he wrote about what he became an eyewitness of; one of the greatest crimes against humanity known as The Great Ukrainian Famine: the starvation of over four(4)million Ukrainians. When OGPU (predecessor of NKVD and KGB)found out about this, they started a massive countermove of denial and disinformation to discredit Gareth Jones' reports. To Stalin's and OGPU's help came celebrities like George Bernard Shaw and the American Pulitzer Price winner Walter Duranty. Listen to Professor Ray Gamache's own words on his extraordinary book 'Gareth Jones: Eyewitness to the Holodomor' and Josef Stalin's rather unknown monstrous crime against humanity.
