“Please describe to me a genocidal event in history where people were systematically rounded up throughout an entire continent using modern communication and mechanization, shipped like commercial product to multiple centralized hubs to be processed as cattle in meat packing and slaughtered by the millions in a matter of a few short years.”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn calculated the death count of Soviet victims who were shipped to gulags and labor camps at 60 million — ten times the number of Jewish victims of Hitler. The events overlap so similar “modern communication and mechanization” were used in both cases.
That is ten million people over how many years? 1918 to, say, 1974 when he left the Soviet Union? Well, that isn’t the point anyway.
The Soviets weren’t putting everyone on those trains to kill them. The Nazis were, after they used whatever resources were left.
People left the Gulag with the blessings of the Soviet government. People weren’t released from concentration camps except by death or liberation.
