'Be kind. Save Somalia' urges Ukrainian genocidal famine Holodomor survivor

Stefan Horlatsch survived the Holodomor as a 12-year-old boy.

Horlatsch's family had their land in the Zaporizhia region of eastern Ukraine, livestock and grain forcibly seized by Soviet authorities during the famine-genocide. Eleven members of his family perished.
