Most peasant families had five or six children, and some mothers killed their weakest children in order to feed the others. Burtianski said at one point, he avoided buying meat from a vendor because he suspected it was human flesh. When the authorities heard about the incident, he was forced to attend the trial of a man and his two sons who were suspected of murdering people for food.
Burtianski says during the trial one of the sons admitted in chilling terms to eating the flesh of his own mother, who had died of starvation. "He said, 'Thank you to Father Stalin for depriving us of food. Our mother died of hunger and we ate her, our own dead mother. And after our mother we did not take pity on anyone. We would not have spared Stalin himself.'"

I wouldn't be able to do that. I would however like to know my neighbor's answers to this question. I wouldn't want to be the one they choose for dinner with their starving eyes!

One would have to be pretty desperate to even think of eating another human being, even if that person was already dead through no fault of your own; but to contemplate sacrificing one member of your family to feed the others is beyond abominable.
To answer your question directly, I'd rather starve to death before I sacrificed and ate a member of my family.
