I don’t like war. I do not think it is fair geopolitics for one country to invade and conquer another country for no reason and to occupy or annex it to its own territory. It’s the worst of all. Russia is now waging war against Ukraine.
Innocent people in war endure bloody beatings and beatings.
Had it not been for Adolf Hitler, there would have been no Holocaust. Hitler initiated and caused the Holocaust.
Russia’s war against Ukraine
Without the insane, wicked, and arrogant Vladimir Putin, Russia would not have invaded Ukraine.
The event is the February 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The people of Ukraine suffered a lot under the Russians.
Holodomor, also known as the terror famine or Great Famine, was a famine in Soviet Ukraine, part of a larger Soviet famine, from 1932 to 1933 that killed millions of Ukrainians. Terms Holdomore Emphasizes man-made and so-called deliberate famines, the denial of outside aid, the confiscation of all household food, and restrictions on the movement of populations that affected Ukraine’s major grain-producing regions. Millions of Ukrainians, most of them ethnic Ukrainians, have died of starvation in unprecedented peace crises in Ukraine’s history. Since 2006, Haldomore Ukraine and 15 other countries have been recognized by the Soviet government as the genocide of the Ukrainian people.
What did the Ukrainians do to the Jews?
In February 1905, a program took place in Odessa, Ukraine, the worst anti-Semitic program in Odessa’s history, in which the Ukrainian people killed 300 Jews and injured thousands more. Another program took place in Ekaterinoslav, at which time the best sons of Ukraine killed 120 Jews.
The program was conducted in 64 cities, including Odessa, Ekaterinoslav, Kyiv, Simferopol, Romney, Kremenchug, Nikolayev, Chernigov, Kamenets-Podolsky and Elisavetgrad, as well as 626 villages. The program lasted several days.
The Ukrainian murderers who killed the Jews were proud train workers, local shopkeepers, artisans and industrialists.
During the Russian Civil War, between 1917-1922, the proud sons of Ukraine continued to kill Jews. A total of 1,236 acts of violence against Jews have been reported in 524 cities in Ukraine. The death toll is estimated at between 30,000 and 60,000. Out of the 1,236 registered programs, 493 Ukrainian People’s Republican soldiers were under the command of Simon Petliura (* Simon Vasilyevich Petliura was a Ukrainian politician and journalist. By 307 and by Anton Denikin’s * Army 213. (* Anton Ivanovich Denikin was a Russian Lieutenant General in the Imperial Russian Army) , Later served as Russia’s Deputy Supreme Ruler during the 1917-1922 Russian Civil War. He was also a military leader of South Russia as Commander-in-Chief).
The Ukrainian people were happy “Help” During World War II, Nazi German people killed Jews – Shoh = Holocaust.
In 1941, Operation Barbarossa * (* Operation Barbarossa was the code name for the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi-Germany and some of its axis allies, beginning Sunday, June 22, 1941, during World War II. And the German king) destroyed the Jewish population of Ukraine and reduced it from 870,000 to 17,000.
The Nazi-German genocide could not have been accomplished without the help of the local Ukrainian people, as the Germans lacked the manpower to destroy all communities, especially to reach the remote villages.
OUN * -B-Stepan Bandera (* Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists) was an anti-Semitic and Nazi ally; His faction in the Ukrainian rebel army is openly in favor of violence against Jews. In August 1941, at the OUN Second Congress in Krakow, Poland, the OUN-B adopted anti-Semitism. Twenty so-called “foreign” nationalities were listed as enemies of Ukraine. Jews were first enlisted. The congressional resolution states: “The OUN fights the Jews in support of the Muscovite-Bolshevik regime.”
On September 1, 1941, the Ukrainian language newspaper Volhyn wrote: “The element of settling in our cities (Jews) should disappear completely from our cities. The Jewish problem is already in the process of being resolved. “
Between 1943 and 1945, members of the Ukrainian rebel army killed thousands of poles across Volhnia, an area that was in Nazi-occupied Poland and is part of present-day Ukraine. Polish historians say the death toll could be as high as 100,000, while Ukrainians say it is only between 20,000 and 30,000! In 2016, the Polish parliament recognized the killings as genocide, a term Ukraine rejects.
In the city of Lviv (Russian Lviv) the program was the two Aqzia (genocide) of the Jews which took place from June 30 to July 2 and July 25-29, 1941. According to Iyad Vashem, initially six thousand Jews were killed. Through the Ukrainian nationalist and newly formed Ukrainian militia riots.
Ukrainian nationalists are German security police and Einsatzgrupen * (* Einsatzgrupen was Schutzstaffel * [*Schutzstaffel or SS; was a major paramilitary organization under Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Nazi Germany, and later throughout German-occupied Europe during World War II]) Nazi German paramilitary death squads who were initially responsible for the massacre in German-occupied Europe during World War II.
Ukrainian Militia in the former Polish cities where there was a large Polish-Jewish presence compiled a list of targets for KdS branch offices and assisted in roundups, such as Stanislav, Olodzimierez Oliski, Lauk (Lutsk), as well as Zaitomir, Rivne and. Among other locations.
In Korostan, militias rounded up 238 Jews “A source of constant unrest” And committed the murders themselves. In Sokal, on June 30, 1941, they arrested 183 Jews and sentenced them to death. “Commissioners.” Other locations follow.
By August 7, 1941, Ukrainian People’s Militia stations had been established in most of the territory conquered by Wehrmacht.
The first mention of Jews living in Korostan (then Iscorostan) is found in 1765. In 1939, the Jewish population of Corostein was 10,991, which is about 36 percent of its total population. Korosten was captured by German troops on August 7, 1941. The Jewish population in and around Korosten was devastated by a series of massacres in August and September 1941. The Ukrainians in Korosten killed the Jews themselves, not once. Even with the presence of Nazi-Germans.
Jews in today’s Ukraine
Ukrainian Jewish makeup and culture are difficult to understand considering its sad and painful history.
Despite centuries of anti-Semitism, pogroms, and relentless persecution that reduced the Jewish population to the pockets of Eastern Europe before the Holocaust, such as * The Pale of Settlement * was a western part of the Russian Empire where Jews were allowed to live in and out of it, permanently or temporarily (mostly forbidden), including a large part of modern Ukraine, which had its shtetls * (* A shtetl or shtetel was a small town with a large Ashkenazi Jewish population). , Mostly located in Central and Eastern Europe before the Holocaust), it was a lively setting for a movie like “The violinist on the roof of the house,” Today, Ukraine is home to one of the largest Jewish communities in the world.
It is estimated that on the eve of World War II – the Holocaust – there were more than 1.5 million Jews living in what is now Ukraine.
Considering that an estimated 1 million Ukrainian Jews were killed in the Holocaust, surprisingly, the 1989 census indicated that about half a million Jews lived in Ukraine before the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Under Soviet rule, to which Vladimir Putin extended a laudable hand, Jews were persecuted and even deprived of the right to emigrate, forcing them to hide most of their religious practices in anti-Semitic societies.
What do people in Ukraine think?
Do Ukrainians think that they have forgotten their past oppression, cruelty and murder of Jews? I hope the current President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, who is a Jew, remembers.
My mother, a Holocaust survivor, told me that the Ukrainians who guarded her when she was a forced labor slave of the Nazis were more brutal than the Nazi guards.
During Russia’s war against Ukraine, I pray for the safety of Ukrainian Jews trapped in Ukraine. I pray for the people of Ukraine to fight the war started by the mad Putin and this war will not turn into the third world war.
God show us His power.
