Nazi Crimes in Ukraine


Published today in Times Record:

Just a few miles outside of Kiev there is a ravine called Babi Yar where, between Sept. 29-30, 1941, 33,771 Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis and their Ukrainian fascist collaborators during the Nazi campaign against the Soviet Union. By the summer of 1943, the ravine held as many as 100,000 corpses — Jews, Roma, prisoners of war and others.

How ironic. Recently, American General Ben Hodges, chief of the U.S. Army in Europe, awarded medals to a current group of Ukrainian fascists in Kiev’s Central Military Hospital. The medal, he said, is a symbol of the U.S. Army in Europe.

The Israeli government, much to its shame, is keeping its mouth shut. In the current scenario, Ukrainian separatists have become the Jews, the Ukrainian Fascists have remained unrepentant and the Nazis have morphed into Americans. We are indeed in the hands of historical ignoramuses.
