    Holocaust is a term that strictly applies to the Jewish victims who were murdered in cold blood by the Nazis. What happened to Ukrainians also happened to other Soviet nationalities such as Byelorussians, Georgians, Armenians, and Meskheti Turks who were deported to Siberia en mass! Stalin never singled out Ukrainians for complete annihilation, the way Jews were in Europe. Don?t compare the holocaust to atrocities committed by Joseph Stalin. There were no comprehensive systematic plans to exterminate Ukrainians. In another words to wipe them out completely from the face of the earth! But Hitler and the Nazi party in Germany did have such plans for the Jews and they scrupulously carried them out. Nazis committed genocide in Eastern Europe, no doubt! For example, gypsies, polish officers and intelligencia, and Russian prisoners war were also killed. However holocaust scholars wish to preserve the dignity and the sanctity of the term holocaust for the Jewish victims, because strictly for them plans and processes, tools and instruments of destruction were intensified.
