– 13thMarch – Louis Fischer & The Thomas Walker Affair
combined with Walker’s subsequent (re)arrest effectively for half a century …
–Destroyed the complete
credibility of the Worldwide ‘Conservative’
press’ allegations of any Soviet famine
in the 1930s.
–Furthermore, in 1933, when Gareth claimed millions were dying, Fischer then scoffed: “Who counted them? How could anyone march through a country count a million people?”
–But in 1935, without ever mentioning Gareth’s name or even attacking his 1935 articles directly – Gareth’s eyewitnessobservations of 1933 were not only tarnished by the same brush as Walker’s, but were completely forgotten for nearly 70 years.
