In the introduction for this edition, Orwell explains his experiences during the Spanish Civil war and his connection to what he describes as âthe negative impact of Soviet myth in Western socialist movement. Â Shevchenko first read the book in English while living in a displaced persons camp. He chose to publish it under the title âKolghosp Tvarynâ which directly referenced collectivized farms instead of choosing the more direct translation of âFerma Tvaryn.

In March 1947, Shevchenko printed around 5, 000 copies to distribute among the Ukrainian refugees in the displaced persons camps of postwar Germany and Austria. But only 2, 000 books were given out; U. S. Soldiers, suspecting the books of being anti-Stalin propaganda, confiscated the rest and handed them over to Soviet authorities to be destroyed.
