The killing of 10 million Christians by the Jewish Bolsheviks under Joseph Stalin 1932-1933 in Ukraine.

Wait—aren’t all dead bodies created equal? Why the galloping disparity in public awareness of these dueling atrocities?
Some would say it’s because Western academia is dominated by leftists who are loath to acknowledge their chosen creed’s historical capacity for totalitarian cruelty.

I’ll pick “all of the above.”
