The entire thrust of the book to the point I'm at is that the Russians and Stalin engaged in political mass murder just as the Nazi's did. That Poles, Ukrainians and Belarusians suffered under both Soviet Communist and Nazi Facist genocides during this period.
To deny this fact is no different that denying the Jewish Holocaust.
In any event, I'm sure you "having family from Russia" makes you an expert on the era, and your word alone surely holds more sway than hundreds of pages of documented and cited references.
