About Lesson

This video delves into the escalation of victimization among groups prior to genocide, cautioning against oversimplifying identities as either victims or perpetrators. It delves into the Soviet Union’s de-kulakization policy, which labelled prosperous peasant farmers as parasites, triggering mass persecution and leading to millions of deaths, especially in Ukraine.


The narrative underscores the harrowing individual tragedies that unfolded during de-kulakization, where mothers were forced to surrender all their grain, resulting in starvation and death for those who resisted.


Ultimately, the video serves as a stark reminder of the perils of extreme victimhood narratives and the importance of nuanced understanding and empathy in preventing catastrophic consequences.
