Gareth Jones’ Diaries On Display

The diaries of the journalist who helped expose the Soviet Terror Famine in the Ukraine are now on display in Cambridge.  At the time of his writings he was denounced as a liar by Soviet sympathizers including Walter Duranty of the New York Times.  Had he not died in suspicious circumstances he would no doubt have been pleased to see that the truth of his accounts is now accepted, although he would perhaps be disappointed to see that one of the outlets for his writing, the Guardian (then the Manchester Guardian), frequently publishes articles explicitly and implicitly supportive of totalitarian revolutionary regimes past and present such as the GDR, Cuba and yes, the Soviet Union.
