- Lazar Moiseyevich Kaganovich (Kogan), of Jewish descent,
was born in Kubany, near Kiev, Ukraine, in 1893. In 1911 he joined the
Jewish-founded Communist Party and became involved with the Bolsheviks
(Lower East Side New York Jews). Kaganovich took an active part in the
1917 takeover of Christian Russia by Communism and rose rapidly in the
- From 1925 to 1928, he was first secretary of the party
organization in Ukraine and by 1930 was a full member of the Politburo.
- Kaganovich was one of a small group of Stalin's top sadists
pushing for very high rates of collectivization after 1929. He became Stalin's
butcher of Christian Russians during the late 1920s and early 1930s when
the Kremlin launched its war against the kulaks (small landowners who were
Christians) and implemented a ruthless policy of land collectivization.
The resulting state-organized forced famine, was a planned genocide and
killed 7,000,000 Ukrainians between 1932 and 1933, and inflicted enormous
suffering on the Soviet Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan.
- Josef Stalin (Dzhugashvili) altered census figures to
hide the millions of famine deaths when the Ukraine and northern Caucasus
region had an extremely poor harvest in 1932, just as Stalin was demanding
heavy requisitions of grain to sell abroad to finance his industrialization
program which was on top of enforced collective farming of 1929. Stalin
is conservatively estimated to have been responsible for the murder and/or
starvation of 40,000,000 Russians and Ukrainians during his reign of terror,
while the total deaths resulting from the de-kulaklization and famine,
by way of Kaganovich, can be conservatively estimated at about 14,500,000.
- On any analysis, Kaganovich, was one of the worst mass
murderers in history, and little wonder that during World War II large
numbers of Ukrainians greeted the Germans as liberators, with many joining
the Waffen-SS to keep Communism from enslaving all of Europe.
