chornyvolk said:The Ukrainian Genocide Myth from Hitler to Harvard
by Douglas Tottle
Published 1987 in Canada
Unlike the rest of the books in this on-line library, I do not physically possess this book. I am including it here, however, because of its importance and its rarity. This book is currently out of print and extremely rare. A worldwide library search reveals that this book is only present in 28 libraries, only one of them a public library, the rest being academic libraries. Of the 28 library locations possessing the book 14 are in America.
I had a copy of the book. I remember they were initially selling it at the Ukrainian Bookstore on Bloor in Toronto. This was flagstore for the Ukrainian workers movement in Canada and sold artifacts from Ukraine and some stuff from Russia. Above the store was a publishin house which also printed newspapers and magzines for the.
The book didn't sell very well, and after a time they would hand out copies for free to anyone that would buy anything else. In time they had a box near the door and you could take as many copies of the book as you want. With the demise of the Soviet Union the store closed shop because it no longer got free or cheap materials from Ukraine. They had a big sale and I bought 2 dozen banduras. The thousands of copies they had in their warehouse behand the store were thrown out.
It is indeed a rare book, because few people have copies. Not many people took it seriously. It was based on materials sent to them from the Ukraina Society in Kyiv which was a front for the KGB.
The book is tainted and not worthy of consideration.
