The massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia (Polish: rzeź wołyńska, literally: Volhynian slaughter; Ukrainian: Волинська трагедія, Volyn tragedy), were part of an ethnic cleansing operation carried out in Nazi German-occupied Poland by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA)'s North Command in the regions of Volhynia (Reichskommissariat Ukraine) and their South Command in Eastern Galicia (General Government) beginning in March 1943 and lasting until the end of 1944. The peak of the genocide took place in July and August 1943. Most of the victims were women and children.[4] UPA's methods were particularly savage, and resulted in 35,000–60,000 Polish deaths in Volhynia and 25,000–40,000 in Eastern Galicia, for the total of between 76,000 and 106,000 casualties.

The killings were directly linked with the policies of the Bandera faction of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN-B) and its military arm, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, whose goal as specified at the Second Conference of the OUN-B on 17–23 February 1943 (or March 1943 according to other sources) was to purge all non-Ukrainians from the future Ukrainian state.[10] Not limiting their activities to the purging of Polish civilians, UPA also wanted to erase all traces of the Polish presence in the area. The violence was endorsed by a significant number of the Ukrainian Orthodox clergy who supported UPA's nationalist cause. The massacres led to a civil conflict between Polish and Ukrainian forces in the German-occupied territories, with the Polish Home Army in Volhynia responding to the Ukrainian attacks.

In 2008, the massacres committed by the Ukrainian nationalists against ethnic Poles in Volhynia and Galicia were described by Poland's Institute of National Remembrance as bearing the distinct characteristics of a genocide, and on 22 July 2016, the Parliament of Poland passed a resolution recognizing the massacres as genocide.

On June 22, 1941 the territories of eastern Poland occupied by the Soviet Union were attacked by German, Slovak, and Hungarian forces. The Red Army in Volhynia was able to resist only for a couple of days. On June 30, 1941 the Soviets withdrew eastward and Volhynia was overrun by the Nazis, with support from Ukrainian nationalists carrying out acts of sabotage. The OUN organized the Ukrainian People's Militia, which staged pogroms and assisted the Germans with roundups and executions of Poles, Jews, and those deemed as communist or Soviet activists, most notably in the city of Lwów, Stanisławów, Korosten and Sokal among other locations.

Videos from Fallen US Soldiers You Tube channels delves deeply into the subject of Nazism in West Ukraine, collaboration with Hitler's army, and the role that Zionism plays in the recruitment of young neo-Nazis today.

The UK government repatriated 7,100 members of the Ukrainian Waffen SS in 1947.

Ukrainian SS ‘Galicia’ Division allowed to settle in Britain

August 2005

Recent releases at The National Archives

Home office papers reveal how 7,100 Ukrainian men from the 14th Waffen SS ‘Galicia’ Division were allowed to settle in Britain in order to protect them from persecution in Stalinist controlled Ukraine. The documents follow the case of the Ukrainian soldiers, from their capture in Italy by British forces to Britain’s reaction to an Italian treaty with the Soviet Union to repatriate the men.

Svoboda (Freedom) seen marching in the video up top (alongside the Right Sector) is also an extreme right-wing political party that has morphed into other prominent parties in the Ukrainian parliament, but has been dubbed by its critics as a neo-Nazi organization. Britain’s Channel 4 News reported in 2014 that Svoboda has assumed a “leading role” in the violent street protests in Kiev, with affiliated paramilitary groups prominently involved in the extreme violence including use of weapons and flaming molotov cocktails being thrown onto police. Svoboda flags and banners were prominently featured in the demonstrations at Kiev’s Independence Square in 2103-2014.

Screen Shot 2018-01-28 at 12.32.48 PM.png

Svoboda has now morphed into The Peoples Front which holds 82 seats of the Ukrainian Rada's 450 seats, and The Self Reliance Party which holds 33 seats, and the Radical Party led by the well known violent fascist Oleg Lyashko, which holds 22 seats.

Further, Svoboda is linked to other far-right groups across Europe through its membership in the Alliance of European National Movements, which includes the British National Party (BNP) of the United Kingdom and Jobbik, the neo-fascist, anti-Semitic and anti-Roma party of Hungary. The leader of Svoboda, Oleh Tyahnybok, who has appeared at the 2013-2014 Kiev protests, has a long history of making inflammatory anti-Semitic statements. Another top Svoboda member, Yuriy Mykhalchyshyn, a deputy in parliament, often quotes Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, as well as other Third Reich luminaries like Ernst Rohm and Gregor Strasser.

The US ambassador in Kiev, Geoffrey Pyatt, said in 2014 that he had been "positively impressed" by Svoboda's evolution in opposition and by its behavior in parliament. "They have demonstrated their democratic bona fides," the ambassador asserted. Igor Kolomoisky, the President of the United Jewish Community of Ukraine, stated in 2010 that the party has clearly shifted from the far-right to the center.

Note that Igor Kolomoisky, the billionaire oligarch owner of Privat Bank is involved in providing direct support to the Right Sector Azov and Aidar battalions that continue to conduct war crimes against the innocent civilian population in the breakaway regions of east Ukraine.

– GUNS AND MONEY –

Dnipro-1’s headquarters are on the ground floor of the Dnipropetrovsk administration building. Upstairs sits the regional governor, Igor Kolomoisky. The arrangement is no accident: Kolomoisky, one of Ukraine’s most controversial billionaires, funds the paramilitary, which returns the favour in these troubled times by boosting the banking and industrial tycoon’s personal security and political clout.

All the signs are of a flourishing military enterprise. Young men with Kalashnikovs and pistols and several well dressed women working on laptops fill the anteroom to Bereza’s office.

Dnipro-1 has 700 men — “officially,” Bereza says with an enigmatic smile.

“Unofficially, it’s 7,000.”

– DARK SIDE –

Questions over the far right leanings of some volunteer groups and allegations of involvement in the murder of civilians cast a long shadow. One of the most controversial is the Azov Battalion, which uses the Wolfsangel insignia — an ancient design that was resurrected in Hitler’s Germany. The Azov has been linked to Oleg Lyashko, a politician accused of neo-Nazi sympathies.

Right Sector, an ultra-nationalist party, also has its own battalion of several hundred men on the frontlines, even if the government refuses to register or pay them. Dasha Slutskovska, a 29-year-old volunteer from the battalion in Dnipropetrovsk, conceded that Right Sector has an image problem — they are relentlessly portrayed in Russia’s state-controlled media as fascists.

The followers of Stepan Bandera until the mid 50-ies in hiding from the Soviet authorities in the woods to avoid being shot...to me the grandmother told, how they changed the names, took refuge from the red army to escape retribution...Many of them lived to a ripe old age, and without answering for their actions...Now they are heroes of Ukraine, they are real fascists, in whose hands so much blood of innocent people.

same here in Baltics, they call them freedom-independence fighters and deny that they collaborated with nazi's,they hid in the woods too,around 20,000 of jews killed in Vilnius,it is denied that any jews were killed at all by our own but documents show that majority of nazi's were local volunteers, even the citizens didn't protest when they saw what they did to the jews, in history books they write that it was the Germans,they march every year now when celebrating Baltic country independence,I believe it was Latvia that had it's nazi front with majority being Latvian,not German. Also it is illegal here to carry nazi and soviet paraphernalia but no one cares for the nazi one, we invite Ukrainian nationalists with SS signs,we let our own citizens march with nazi paraphernalia during independence day. Soviet citizens have gone to jail just for praising soviet union, no one went to jail for collaborating with nazi's,all who survived lived here to ripe old age too, a lot had a great life in America after the war.

Latvia: Hundreds commemorate Waffen SS Latvian Legion in Riga

Thank you for sharing. Such a hard time of history, with two powers moving in from both sides. I read a beautiful biography called "The Rings of My Tree" about a Latvian woman on the run throughout Europe for the duration of the war. Having fled Russian Occupation, she found momentary comfort with German families, until she ended up having to run from there. I've read of Europeans who still honor the Nazis for the role they played in protecting them when fleeing east wasn't an option, albeit a flawed protection. I would hope that's the perspective they are coming from. But it's still hard to comprehend.

So many people affected on all sides. What I try to do with my posting is reveal facts that have been hidden from the public by global governments so that people can find out the truth about the wars and make informed decisions based upon such. During WW2 millions of people were, like the woman in your book, caught between a rock and a hard place. Its worth mentioning that Latvia also had a Waffen SS division and they were heavily instrumental in the siege of Soviet cities that led to the deaths of millions of people.

Unfortunately, the eastern European Waffen SS divisions are often covered up in western history because they don't fit the narrative related to post war Soviet occupation. Other countries with their own Waffen SS Divisions included Estonia, Croatia, Albania, Hungary, Slovenia, Belarussia, Romania, Bosnia and from the western European countries, French, Swedish, Finnish, Danish, Netherlands, Flanders, Italian, Dutch, Wallonian volunteer battalions.

@clarityofsignal Hey can you make a video on the Armenian and Azerbaijan War going on since the collapse of the Soviet Union and thanks for the videos keep them coming I enjoy reading about conflicts going around in the world.

Hi @californiacrypto, I am not very well researched on the subject but I will be glad to look into it and see if I can put together some interesting material for a post. I should mention though that I try to primarily focus on history in relation to what is occurring now, particularly in relation to major current hotspots on the Grand Chessboard and the nefarious actions of well known global elitists. A lot of the information I post comes from friends and contacts in the war zones, plus my own deeper research in regards to such.

👍 I enjoy reading your posts.

It's a time period that needs people to take the time and reveal facts that have been hidden about it. I agree with you. So much of history has been under wrap. I grew up in the Cold War era, so we at least knew a little bit, but I find that youth today in America are very uninformed about any of it, which is frightening.

Informative post, my mother-in-law was born near these locations at about the same time. Now I am curious to ask and learn more about her life. Her mother passed a few years back. I would have loved an opportunity to learn her experiences.

Family links always make the research and discovery more personal, and I thoroughly encourage you to research it deeply as history is corrupted over time by the 'winning' side in war.

Family stories are what also led me to look deeper on the subject of WW2. My nan was in Dagenham East London which was one of the most heavily bombed areas in the UK during WW2. She told me how the German Stuka bombers would fly following the Thames River and when they saw the factory lights of Dagenham and Barking at night they would start dropping their bombs early so they could get out of there without being shot down by British anti-aircraft guns. She witnessed many deaths and felt responsible for a few herself due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time. She was charged with looking after a little boy whose mother had to attend the funeral of his brother who had been killed by bombing. Then while taking the child to the public loo the building was hit by a bomb and that son was killed also. My nan had to explain this to the mother who was returning from her other sons funeral. She felt she was at fault. Her own children (my uncle and mother) were sent to Scotland for safety at the time. Thus, her stories gave me impetus to study the origins of the conflict and how different countries were drawn in. Alas, that research has now led me to create the Clarity of Signal website where I endeavour to expose the global elitists that profit from horrific war and human suffering. https://clarityofsignal.com

My wife said she was born in Rowne in 1944. Look at how close that is on your map. My wife also said that her grandpa had to remarry because locals had killed his first wife. My wife's mom has a half sister back in Poland who is from the first wife. This story is taking a twist for me personally now I am really interested. My mother-in-law will visit soon so I can learn more.

It was a great historical post
