very strange...
I have never heard in Soviet propaganda about the number of deaths from starvation in America during the Great Depression ...
I heard phrases from Americans on American forums "
1. 5 to 7 million people died.
2. "American rabbit" is a fried rat that was sold to hungry Americans.
Have you ever heard of this?
I include the deaths from the "dust bowl which are estimated to be in the thousands

My great grandparents and some of their cousins ate 'fried rabbit.' How many died? From starvation, malnutrition, bad diets that caused mortal diseases, etc?

Nobody knows. Whatever the number it was, far more would have died if it had not been for federal and state and local relief programs.

Oh, no one will hear a Russian make a comparison with American starvation rates: the Russians would look terrible in comparison.
