In Search of Salvation


Attempted struggle with bays, forcible policy of nomads’ transition to settled life as well as intensive collectivization campaign and meat stocking led to mass reduction of livestock with subsequent famine. Its scale surpassed the leanest years in Kazakhstan, which took place in 1918-1919 and in 1921-1922. This famine carried away almost four million people, the majority of deaths occurred on the territory of the republic.
