Norman M. Naimark


On his book Stalin’s Genocides

Cover Interview of November 02, 2010

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“Genocide definition should include social and political groups.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“The obligation of protecting ethnic and national groups, as well as religious and racial ones, from mass murder should not obviate the need to protect political and social groups from the same horrendous crime.”

On the second:

“Soviet mass killing in the 1930s were examples of intentional mass killing.”
