To remember. 75 years since the tragedy in Khatyn

97
Exactly 75 years ago - March 22 1943 of the year - Khatyn was burned down by Nazi occupiers and their accomplices. For three quarters of a century, the very name of this Belarusian village is significant. This is a reminder of the atrocities of the Nazi punitive detachments during the Great Patriotic War in the territory of the Soviet Union.


To remember. 75 years since the tragedy in Khatyn


With the wording “for possible cooperation with partisans”, in Khatyn, 149 people, including young children, were burnt alive and shot. Collaborationists from the 115 battalion of the “Schutzmanshafta” - a unit formed from the security police, local traitors and mainly from representatives of the OUN (* banned in the Russian Federation) - former members of the so-called. "Bukovinsky Kuren" (Melnikov). Representatives of the SS 36 Division (Oscar Dierlewanger Division) also directly participated in the commission of a war crime.

History Kept the names of the direct perpetrators of the atrocities in Khatyn:
commanders - Major Konstantin Smovsky, Major Ivan Shudrya;
company commander: Vinnitsa;
platoon: Lieutenant Meleshko, Pasichnik;
Chief of Staff: Grigory Vasyura;
Private staff: Corporal (machine gunner) I. Kozinchenko, Private G. Spivak, S. Sakhno, O. Knap, T. Topchiy, I. Petrichuk, Vladimir Katryuk, Lakusta, Lukovich, Shcherban, Varlamov, Khrenov, Egorov, Subbotin, Iskander , Khachaturian.


In 1986, a trial was held in Minsk over Grigory Vasury. During the process, it was established that he personally executed more than 360 women, old people, children in the territories occupied by the Nazis (the Khatyn crime - among others). By decision of the military tribunal of the Belarusian Military District, Vasyur was found guilty and sentenced to death. Only after 43, after the terrible tragedy in Khatyn.

And V.Katryuk died at all in his death in the 2015 year, having fled at the time to Canada. Canada has a long tradition of welcoming Nazi criminals.

Site Memorial complex "Khatyn" reminds:
None of the most detailed geographic map you will not find this Belarusian village today. It was destroyed by the Nazis in the spring of 1943. Khatyn - the former village of the Logoisk district of the Minsk region of Belarus - has become a symbol of the tragedy of the Belarusian people, a mournful page in the history of the Great Patriotic War. In memory of the victims 2 million 230 thousand inhabitants of Belarus in 1969, a memorial complex was built on the site of the village of Khatyn burned together with the inhabitants, which embodies the idea of ​​courage and disobedience of the people who brought innumerable victims in the name of Victory.


The tragedy of Khatyn is one of many thousands of facts testifying to the purposeful policy of genocide during the Nazi occupation.

We remember.

    We remember that, but very poorly remind the Europeans. The Jews remember that they were also destroyed by packs around the world and I think it is worthy of respect that Israel approved May 9 as a public holiday (not 8, but 9!) As Victory Day ... well, they also remember on the former Soviet lands. And the rest of Europe and America is already a light bulb. The old people remember them, because they saw how our tanks walked on their land, but the youth do not even know the dates.

        I don’t know who it is that it’s inflated. The biggest victims on the territory of Belarus were the Jews of Minsk - about 80, from 000 to 43 died in Bialystok; 000 to 58 in Pinsk; 000 24 - in Brest, 000 25 - in Bobruisk, Vitebsk and Grodno. About 000 - in Slutsk; 22 - in Lida; 000-20 000 - in Baranovnchi; 20 - in Mogilev.

        Only in the territory of Western Belarus, annexed to the USSR after the outbreak of World War II in 1941 - 1944, from 528 to 569 thousand Jews were exterminated (including from 370 to 395 thousand people in the modern borders of the Republic of Belarus).

        In Belarus, every fourth resident of the republic died at the hands of the Nazi occupiers. Of these, one in three was Jewish. By the number of Holocaust victims in the USSR - over 800 people - Belarus ranks second after Ukraine. Once you know that Belarus knows about the city of Borisov, the murder began at 000 a.m. from October 3 to 19 with the ghetto's entourage. The first to take the men to the place of execution were men. There were not enough Borisov policemen to organize the removal and murder of such a mass of people, so the Germans brought additional units from neighboring police stations. In the morning, the remaining Jews began to be taken to death. Trucks filled with women and children moved from Polotskaya Street to the airfield, where shooting holes were dug. All day the cars went one after another, transporting Jews to the place of murder, and came back with the things of those killed. But there were still not enough cars, and policemen drove groups of women and children on foot, beating them with iron rods. Everything happened from morning to night in front of the local population. It was impossible to escape, because policemen stood along the streets and immediately shot at those who tried to hide [20] [6] [7].

        The manager of the police department, Joseph Maitak, provided the murderers with enough vodka, and the policemen killed people while they were drinking. Before the execution, the victims were ordered to completely undress and lay face down - according to the cynical expression of the burgomaster Stankevich: “by the sardine method” to save space. When the row of the pit was filled, the Jews had to fill the bodies with a layer of sand and ram [6]. Many people were only injured - they were buried alive. The Germans who watched all this took pictures of what was happening and often laughed [7]. Blood flowed through a thin layer of earth, which was used to sprinkle the dead, and so that it would not fall into the Berezina and cause an epidemic, it was ordered to additionally fill the grave with quicklime and another layer of sand [1] [2] [18].

        According to German reports, only for October 20-21, 1941, 7245 Borisov Jews were shot [8] [19]. In total, taking into account other, less massive executions and killings, the number of Jewish victims in Borisov is approximately 9000 people [1] [7] [20] [21].

        About 1500 Jews with specialties needed by the Germans were temporarily left alive. Later, Jews from Poland, the Czech Republic and Austria were added to them. All of them were killed in 1942 [2].

        In 1943, the Germans, trying to hide the traces of crimes, forced a team of prisoners of war to dig up the bodies of murdered Jews and burn them at the stake, after which all performers were shot [1

          The whole world understands the tragedy of the Jewish and many other peoples who did not want to swear allegiance to the Nazis.
          It’s just not at all clear why, in spite of such massive repressions and Jewish victims, there were practically no victims in the multinational army, which fought against fascism in 1941-1945.

          Hello namesake! hi I’m not saying that the Jews weren’t destroyed - you are right in saying that a lot of them died in Belarus.
          I say that the number of 6 million deaths is several times overstated. In all territories occupied by fascist Germany there were not so many Jews. And how many of them left to save themselves?
          But stating such a huge number of victims, Israel secured a comfortable life, and concessions as a people affected.

            Good day namesake, I’m a small person and I can’t answer for global figures, I’ll tell about my family, my grandfather, a Jew, was drafted to the front from the city of Stalin at 41, and died somewhere near Stalingrad, the funeral is kept at our place, as well as letters from postcards from the front, a Jewish grandmother with children, and was evacuated together with the factory to Uzbekistan. As some wrote that the Jews left for warmer regions, it’s true, but only in the place where the factory was producing cartridges. I can’t answer for European Jews, judging according to many reports, they fled with great financial benefits, I know one thing was my communists, and they gave their lives for the Soviet Union. From the Ukrainian side, grandfather and grandmother went through the whole war and reached Berlin

          It’s an amazing thing, as even a Nazi crime like Khatyn is used by some to spit on Russia. This is certainly nothing sacred! And yet, always things should be called by their proper names. The name has both a feat and a crime! There should not be any tolerance and perverted forms of internationalism! If the SS division was commanded by Dirlewanger, and directly by the executioners in Khatyn, Smovsky, Vinnitsa, Meleshko, Pasechnik and Vasyura, then everyone is able to conclude who these ghouls are and where!

              If you got on your foot in the subway in the morning, then with a great desire and here you can parallelize the power! Now further about the homeland and the government - you deigned to say that modern Russia, thanks to the elite, has surrendered to liberal fascism. For example, I myself, my family, friends and colleagues, and in general I consider my environment to be part of Russia. Russia is our land, people who consider this land their homeland, our faith, culture, history ... I don’t know in our villages, regions and cities whose population surrendered to some kind of fascism thanks to someone or something! As for the liberals themselves, their percentage in Russia, thank God, is at the level of statistical error, but the hatred of many of them towards Russia and the Russians and the authorities is simply going through the roof! So, there is nothing special to analyze here. And speaking for Russia all the more in this context is also not necessary! If someone gave up there then you take a closer look and analyze for yourself maybe it is not Russian at all ?! Maybe it's all those same mankurts of nationality that do not have statistical error ?! And the last thing - I consider the dispute over the good or bad Russian authorities in an article about the Khatyn tragedy inappropriate!

The Romans simplified the scheme - 12 species, in each 2 biases with the possibility of synthesis. This is beautifully described in Roman law - the foundation of our legal relationship.

      since it’s forbidden to incite ethnic hatred on the site, let's not generalize, Ukrainians or even Jews, the 118th punitive battalion was formed from the military personnel at the beginning of the war, had nothing to do with Bendera, Vasyura was a lieutenant of the Red Army, According to German documents, The 118th security battalion was transferred to Belarus only in July 1943 and could not participate in the punitive operation in Khatyn. Soviet collaborators also served in the Dirlewanger battalion, and they could be mistaken for fighters of the 118th security battalion. Probably, only the 1st company of the 118th battalion was operating in the Khatyn region, which could be transferred to Belarus in March.

      The 118th battalion later in August 1944 switched to the side of the French partisans, where it formed the backbone of the 2nd Ukrainian Taras Shevchenko battalion. Many of the soldiers of this battalion later served in the French Foreign Legion. Nevertheless, after the war, a number of soldiers and officers of the 118th battalion were sentenced to death or lengthy imprisonment for this crime, although they denied participation in the operation in Khatyn. In particular, in December 1986, the former head of the 118th battalion, Grigory Vasyur, was sentenced to death in Minsk, although he was not in Khatyn. I would like the true participants to be punished for this atrocity, although most likely they are dead. 10 battalions took part in the destruction operation in Belarus, including 8 Latvians, one Lithuanian and one Ukrainian.

        I did not say a word about the nationality of the performers. So the claims about inciting ethnic hatred are not addressed.
        Yes, I really said that the closest hotbed of fascism is Ukraine.
        Do you disagree with this? Do you dig up evidence yourself or help you?

    It is bad that the ideologists of the USSR were silent about who actually burned Khatyn. It was believed that these were German punishers. Also, as the Hungarians did not recall Voronezh, the Romanians of Odessa. Because, like brothers, like, in the camp. The Poles are the Army of Sandersres, and the Army of Craiova.

My grandfather died in Belarus, in the Shabunsky forest, I myself served in Minsk, this land is not a stranger to me. The Germans and their accomplices were real beasts and cannibals. Even as they retreated, they committed atrocities, took away things and food from the locals, shot them, burned houses.

And Belarusians suffered no less than Jews, only their extermination was not recognized as genocide. if someone during the Second World War hid in Belarus (Jews, runaway prisoners and prisoners of war, then they survived, and who stayed in Poland or went to Ukraine, then they died, their locals simply gave out gastapos.

      No, I got it wrong. It was the 118-th battalion of schutzmannschaft. Although initially they tried to make it mono-ethnic, the national composition was still motley.
      You can carefully look at the names.
      As for why Soviet propaganda was silent, it’s not a secret. It's not about the friendship of nations even.
      It’s just that Soviet ideologists cut off some not very convenient facts. In order not to spoil them beyond any doubt the heroic struggle of the Soviet people. The mentioned battalion was a German military formation and okay. And what composition there is no longer important.
      And actually, they, ideologists were right. Moreover, such practice is worldwide.
      Therefore, in the Soviet period, the topic of neither the UPA, nor the ROA, nor the Cossack formations, nor the Lokot republic was specifically massaged.

      Well and yet, many couch strategists have only two colors, black and white. And when on the topic of betrayal, all the more so.
      Meanwhile, there are not so many absolute traitors as absolute heroes. Most are such that in different circumstances they behave differently.
      One and the same person may throw a grenade under a tank, or maybe, being stunned, extracted by the Germans from a sleepy trench, raise their hands. Despite the fact that it is not the first day at the front and in the personal account it is not empty.
      The Germans understood this very well, because they easily turned a blind eye to the previous heroism, if they managed to persuade a person to their side (which they knew how well). You will not return the dead for anyone, but getting a skilled fighter is much better than shooting.
      By the end of the war, our people also understood this, therefore there is nothing to be surprised at the facts when in the liberated territories the former policemen were poisoned directly into the troops.

          it’s one thing to get wounded prisoners, but cutting one’s throat is another.



          Well, I'm not a schoolboy, that's why there is a different opinion.
          Capturing, not even of his own free will, is not one, this is the first step. For it is already in the hands of the enemy and depend on his will. And then, according to the circumstances. They can just break. For example, a pistol with one cartridge is offered to two, with an offer to take and shoot a comrade. A primitive dilemma: "if I don’t have it, then he means me," but how well it worked.
          And against those that: “a better bullet in the forehead than I will become a killer”, there was another method, of slow bending.
          First, you just sit on the camp rations, without any requirements there. They’ll just forget about you. You can certainly strangle yourself, open your veins, but there are many of these? The man is still hopeful.
          Then they will offer to work. Whatever dig, wear. Sin seems to be small, but feeding is better, as it does not agree.
          And there it suddenly turns out that you are, for example, a driver. And to turn a steering wheel, it is not to rub a shovel of a callus. And again, soldering is even better as a qualified technician. True, here you need to wear a uniform, so without the insignia, consider it a robe.
          And since it’s the driver, it’s not the camp hut to live, but the barracks. With the entire service of the troops, sentry for the barracks, fleet.
          Oh, and you can't protect a vehicle fleet without a carbine, but the equipment. So, too, sort of like a watchman, these are not executions.
          True, along with the carbine, insignia were already slapped, so too a trifle, we will consider them badges.
          Only the command of the driver, who already with the rank, weapon, somehow became more trusted. For example, carry special teams. Which are already engaged in executions. So it's just to carry, do not shoot yourself.
          And again, an unexpected person, it turns out to be a full-time driver of this team.
          And there, your immediate commander at one fine moment, - Enough for you to sit in the cockpit. Come here, otherwise your carbine will rust soon.
          Say a tipping point?
          Yes figs there. If you do not understand, then they will explain that for a long time in the team. And from the fact that you turned the steering wheel, and they shot, nothing changes. Together they did one thing, so now you are wandering.

            and I'm not a schoolboy, but the “friend or foe” system should work. Some things cannot be done, under any circumstances. “Once Papuan” does not roll.
