Storyline

A description of Josef Stalin's purges in Ukraine in the 1930s and 1940s. The 1917 Bolshevik (or Communist) Revolution laid the foundation for the later collectivization and subjugation of the peasant classes, along with the systematic quota-driven elimination of those who where perceived to be a threat to Stalin's policies. This film contains many survivor and eyewitness accounts of the resulting torture, executions, and mass burials. The film ends with current efforts to document the atrocities and the slow process of bringing the guilty to justice. Written by yortsnave

A powerful, moving account of the Stalinist terror in the 1930's & 1940's.
13 April 2002 | by Dave-792See all my reviews

"Eternal Memory: Voices From the Great Terror" is a very powerful documentary. While Hitler's genocide was going on in Western Europe, Stalin had accomplished an equally massive abuse of human rights in the former Soviet Union. This is a part of the terrible legacy of Stalin that I wasn't fully aware of. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the former Soviet Union or of human rights atrocities.
