Repetition of immense crimes against humanity is made less likely when the responsible societies acknowledge the crimes, apologize, make amends, and accept the injunction "never again to anyone". This book is concerned in part with the 2 century holocaust in British India that commenced with the Great Bengal Famine of 1769-1770 (10 million victims), concluded with the World War II Bengal Famine (6-7 million victims), and took hundreds of millions of lives in between through imposed deprivation. However, these events have been largely written out of history and removed from general perception. In the absence of effective global action, these horrors will be repeated on an unimaginably larger scale in the coming century.
