This site you posted the link to is just relentless, the sheer weight of it. It's a stunning job of pulling together all the sources for the education effort, but I've come out of it numb. These are things we don't think of -- that a body could be so far gone that the food it needs could kill it. There are children dying this day in relief stations in Niger, Sudan, Somalia, with a bowl of rice in front of them and no strength to lift it nor anyone to feed them. The soldiers who liberated Dachau killed many prisoners with compassion, the same way. It doesn't seem that we've learned a thing, except how to forget that some kinds of damage are so profound you can't just reverse it with the simple application of what was missed.
I never knew about most of this, and certainly not to this detail.
This is a strange collection of illustrated news at the time of the famine/starvation, from the viewpoint of the British press. Strangely sanitized, perhaps, even describing the horrors with great physical accuracy sometimes, but a queer, repulsive detachment. http://vassun.vassar.edu/~sttaylor/FAMINE/
