The book telling about the famine in Ukraine gets the Gelbert Prize


Anne Applebum, the Pulitzer Prize winner, received the Gelber Prize for her book 'Red Famine: Stalin's War on Ukraine'.

'Famines, then and now, are never the result of natural causes only; they are also the result of deliberate choices that leaders make. This is a magnificent book about a globally important issue that everyone should read', Janice Stein, the prize jury chairman, said.

The Lionel Gelber Prize was founded in 1989 by Canadian diplomat Lionel Gelber. The prize is a literary award for the world's best non-fiction book in English on foreign affairs that seeks to deepen public debate on significant international issues.
