Eugene Genovese

Genovese was born in Brooklyn, New York. Raised in a working-class ethnic Italian family, he was active in the Communist youth movement until he was expelled “for having zigged when I was supposed to zag.”

In the 1990s, the American historian Eugene Genovese, having turned against Communism, wrote: “In a noble effort to liberate the human race from violence and oppression, we broke all records for mass slaughter … we have a disquieting number of corpses to account for.”
