Holodomor and historical memory in Ukrainian, Polish, and Russian cultures

There are 4 comments on the www.day.kiev.ua story from Nov 25, 2008, titled Holodomor and historical memory in Ukrainian, Polish, and Russian cultures. In it, www.day.kiev.ua reports that:

The sign over the entrance gate to the Soviet Solovki concentration camp read: “We Shall Force Humankind into Happiness with an Iron Hand.” The sign over the main gate to a Nazi concentration camp read: “Arbeit macht frei” —“Work Makes You Free.” It is hard to say which of the two formulas is more cynical. They both are, because at the time an individual could only expect to find happiness and freedom in the afterlife.

Yet you fools still support Georgia? Why? Stalin caused everything and the georgians have a Stalin statue and a Stalin museum in the town of Gori. Georgia used Stalin methods against South Ossetia.
