61 years ago today, one of the most evil men in human history died.
Had he died 25 years earlier, tens of millions of lives would have been saved, not least the estimated 10 million Ukrainians who perished in the Holdomir, the man-made famine promoted by Stalin and his allies in the Politburo.
74 years ago today, Stalin signed the order for the murder of an estimated 40,000 Polish officers held in camps in the Katyn Forest.
Why is it so hard to recognize evil? Why is it that cultural icons such a Pete Seeger – a devout Stalinist in his day – are accorded honor?
Not everyone was so blind.
