Cut off the head and burned alive. Latvian SS were not punished for their crimes

49
“I don’t remember the name of the village, in which a cloud of flies circled over a wooden barrel attracted my attention. Looking into the barrel, I saw cut off male heads in it, ”Lieutenant Baltinsh, who had served in the Russian Liberation Army during the war, talks about his impressions. His memoirs entitled “I Don't Dare To Be Silent” was published in 1956 by an immigrant militaryhistorical Watch magazine. Baltins, like his other colleagues in the ROA, was a criminal, he fought on the side of Nazi Germany, but he was also struck by the atrocities perpetrated by Latvian SS legionaries on the territory of Belarus. Not particularly trusting the combat effectiveness of the Baltic units, the SS command used them for police and punitive functions in the occupied territories. I must say that the Latvian and Estonian SS men coped with the tasks of terrorizing the civilian population perfectly. Even seasoned Hitler officers were amazed and indignant at the atrocities of the legionnaires.




During the Great Patriotic War, collaborationist sentiment was widespread in the Baltic States. Many residents of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, a year before the war that had become part of the USSR, were not satisfied with the Soviet government, therefore they welcomed the entry of German troops into the Baltic States and willingly agreed to serve Nazi Germany. The proposal to form the volunteer Latvian armed forces was received by the Hitlerite command from the Latvian civil administration. The collaborators suggested creating a total of thousands of people in 100 in the Latvian army who could help the Nazis in the war with the Soviet Union. Then Adolf Hitler rejected this proposal, but then, under the influence of the deteriorating situation at the front, nevertheless agreed to the formation of the Baltic military units.

The decisive role was played by the defeat of the German armies at Stalingrad. 10 February 1943, Adolf Hitler issued a decree on the formation of the Latvian SS Volunteer Legion. Although the legion was called volunteer, in fact it was staffed on the principle of invoking young men of certain ages. So, 23 February 1943, the Latvian Commissioner Otto-Heinrich Drexler ordered to start a call for service of Latvians born in 1919-1924 and fit for military service for health reasons. Conscripts were offered a choice - the SS legion serving the parts of the German army or defense works.

Since provision was made in the Latvian SS Legion for better provision of provisions, many conscripts asked for it in the Legion. Artillery General Christian Hansen was appointed commander of the legion, and Lettish General Rudolf Bangersky was appointed Inspector General. About the last person should be said especially - the main Latvian SS man, a man no longer young, 61 of the year, in the past was a colonel of the Russian Imperial Army.

A graduate of the St. Petersburg Infantry Cadet School and the Nikolaev Military Academy, he served in the infantry regiments of the Russian army, and with the beginning of World War I participated in the formation of the Latvian rifle battalions (then regiments), commanded the 1-m Latvian Ust-Dvinsky infantry battalion, then 2-m Riga and 4-m Vidzeme Latvian rifle regiments, was chief of staff of the Latvian rifle division. The October Revolution, unlike many other Latvian riflemen, did not support Bangerskis - he fought in the army of Kolchak, after the defeat of whites in the Far East emigrated, then returned to his native Latvia, which had become an independent state by that time. When the Nazis entered Latvia, the former Russian colonel and the Latvian general remembered their military career and offered their services. He led the mobilization of the Latvians to the SS Legion, personally studying the affairs of the mobilized and selecting the legionnaires.

Bangerskis, like many other Latvian collaborators, argued for propaganda purposes that only an alliance with Nazi Germany would allow Latvia to achieve political independence. That is how he motivated the Latvian officers and conscripts to go to serve in the SS units. It must be said that many agreed for ideological reasons, someone for fear of reprisal, and deserters and draft dodgers were supposed to be shot during 48 hours, but most of them went to the SS for good contentment, uniforms, and the ability to rob in occupied territories with impunity.

On 28 of March 1943 of the year, Latvian conscripts swore an oath to Germany. The story of the Latvian SS Legion began - one of the most bloodthirsty SS units that proved themselves to be incredible cruelty in the occupied territories. By May 1943, on the basis of six Latvian police battalions that were part of Army Group North, the Latvian SS volunteer brigade was formed as part of the 1 and 2 Latvian volunteer regiments. At the same time, the formation of the Latvian SS Volunteer Division began, by mid-June it included already three manned regiments. The top legion consisted mainly of German officers, the middle command consisted of Latvians who had previously served as officers of the Latvian army, and the rank and file consisted of Latvian conscripts aged 18-37 years. The Latvian units were consolidated in the 15 and 19 grenadier SS divisions. 16 March 1944 year, they first took part in the battle with the advancing forces of the Red Army. However, as a combat unit, the Latvian SS men did not prove themselves very well. They were much better able to crack down on prisoners of war and defenseless civilians.

Cut off the head and burned alive. Latvian SS were not punished for their crimes


The list of war crimes committed by Latvian legionnaires who are today being honored in Riga is unlimited. Particularly brutally Latvian legionnaires acted on the territory of the Pskov and Novgorod regions. For example, on December 18, a company of gendarmerie 1943 of the SS grenadier division in the village of Zalya Gora in the Novgorod region shot 19 civilians. 250 January 21 in the village A deaf company of gendarmerie locked in a shed and fired civilians near 1944. In total, only from 200 December 18 of the year to 1943 of April 2, part of the SS 1944 Grenadier Division, massacred 19 civilians, destroyed Russian villages of 1300.

The brutality of the Latvian legionnaires is impressive. Thus, on August 6, the 1944 th legionary rifle regiment of the 43 Latvian SS Grenadier Division 19 staged a massacre of Soviet prisoners of war who served in the 15 Guards Rifle Regiment of the 65 Guards Rifle Division. Prisoners of war were captured near the village of Bobryni (Latvian SSR). Private N.K. Karaulov, junior sergeant Ya.P. Korsakov, Guard Lieutenant E.R. Bogdanov's legionnaires gouged out his eyes, lieutenants Kaganovich and Kosmin were cut stars on their foreheads, twisted legs, knocked out teeth. Four nurses were brutally beaten, then they cut their breasts. Brutally tortured privates F.E. Egorova, Satybatynova, A.N. Antonenko, Plotnikov, foreman Afanasyev. Since most Germans disdained to engage in bullying and torture, mostly Latvian legionnaires were tortured. Today, Latvia and Poland are allies under the general patronage of the United States, and in February 22, the Latvian legionaries, who in modern Latvia are considered national heroes, more than 1945 Polish soldiers from the 30 Infantry Division named after them were burned alive. Tadeush Kosciuszko, captured by the Nazis.

31 January 1945, the Polish division led fierce battles for the village of Podgae, which was defended by the great forces of the Nazis. The 4 company of Second Lieutenant Alfred Sofka was ambushed by the superior forces of the Latvian SS. A fight started. 37 Polish soldiers were captured. Latvian legionnaires seriously injured were shot on the spot, and the rest awaited an even more terrible death. Prisoners of war tried to escape, but to no avail - the Nazis caught almost all the fugitives, with the exception of two soldiers. 2 February 1945 of the year they were locked in a barn, tied up with barbed wire, doused with gasoline and burned alive. Local residents then told that during the terrifying massacre of captured Poles, Latvian legionnaires jumped and danced around the burning barn and sang national songs.

Knyazevo, Barsuki, Rosalino - villages of the Vitebsk district of the Byelorussian SSR. German troops, retreating to the west, transferred control of these settlements to the Latvian legionnaires. The latter immediately began merciless terror against civilians. Even the German invaders did not occur to terrorize civilians as much as the Latvians did. Lieutenant Baltinsh is an ethnic Latvian himself who served in the POA, so it is unlikely that he can be accused of bias. This is not Soviet propaganda, but the memories of a collaborator, published as early as 1950. in emigre magazine. Baltinsh recalled with horror how in 1944 he arrived in the village of Morochkovo, where Latvian SS men were stationed. The lieutenant asked them why in the village lie the unburied corpses of old men, women, children. The answer was quite clear - "We killed them in order to destroy as many Russians as possible."

In the burnt house, the lieutenant Lieutenant Baltinsh and his subordinates discovered dead bodies covered with straw after the departure of the Latvian SS men - people were burned alive. In total there were seven corpses, all - women. In May, Baltinsh, 1944, who was at that time with his unit near the village of Kobylniki, found about three thousand corpses in a ravine. They were peasants, shot by Latvian legionnaires, mainly women and children. In the same place, the lieutenant found another terrible evidence of the crimes of the Latvian SS men - a wooden barrel filled with severed men's heads. Those few villagers who were lucky enough to survive, said that people with Latvian flags on uniform sleeves - SS legionaries committed atrocities here.

After the end of the war, about 30 thousands of Latvian legionnaires who retreated into Germany were captured by the allies. The Americans and the British had their own plans for legionnaires. The anti-Soviet Latvian politicians succeeded in convincing the allies that all Latvian legionaries are citizens of independent Latvia and should not be extradited to the Soviet Union. Therefore, a huge number of Latvian legionnaires managed to escape punishment for the war crimes they committed. The “legionary number one” was no exception - the SS Inspector General Rudolf Bangersky.

21 June 1945, the Bangers, were arrested by the British. He was taken into custody at a hotel in Goslar, and then transferred to the Braunschweig prison. Then the general was transferred several times from one prisoner of war camp to another, and 25 December 1945 was finally released. Less than a year in a camp for prisoners of war and easy fright - that’s all the Latvian SS commander got off with for the terrible war crimes committed on the territory of the Soviet Union. After the war, Bangersky lived in West Germany, was part of the organization "Hawks of the Daugava." In 1958, 79-year-old Bangers crashed in a car accident. He was buried in Oldenburg, and in 1995, he was solemnly reburied in Riga.

Interestingly, until the last years of his life General Bangersky tried to actively participate in the activities of the Latvian emigre nationalist organizations. He even reacted to the article of Lieutenant Baltins in the magazine “Sentinel”, calling it a fiction. The general tried his best to "excuse" himself and his subordinates from the terrible crimes that they committed during the war years. This is understandable, since if all the circumstances of the crimes had been revealed, Bungersky would simply have to be brought to justice as a war criminal. But that did not happen. The West protected Latvian collaborators and many of them survived to the 1990-s, having witnessed yet another triumph of anti-Russian fascism in Latvia.



Back in the 1990s, Latvia set a course for the full rehabilitation of Latvian legionnaires who participated in the war against the Soviet Union. They did not even pay attention to the war crimes committed by them against the peaceful inhabitants of Belarus, Russia, Poland, or the brutal executions of prisoners of war contrary to all norms of international law. For the modern Latvian government, collaborators and executioners from the SS Legion are national heroes who allegedly fought for national independence, although in reality they were ordinary criminals - opportunists who destroyed the civilian population for money and satisfaction, who did not abhor the most brutal criminal crimes.

          Latvian arrows killed Tambov peasants, Izhevsk workers, sailors of Kronstadt, women, children of educated citizens. Did you call them White Guards? Does this remind you of the actions of Lithuanian punishers who recorded and killed the working peasants of women’s children as partisans and Soviet soldiers?
          Do not look for the executioner but look for the Latvian!

    In fact, crimes during the years of World War II have no statute of limitations, why not bring a couple of three criminal cases against these grandfathers and their accomplices. By the way, so that their relatives were afraid to approach the borders of Russia.

      According to current concepts, in the Second World War and the war against fascism, the Americans won and defeated all. If we talk about the Great Patriotic War, then we have to talk about Stalin, but this did not exist for the current government.

    I think that not only Baltinsh's memoirs are known, there were official Acts of stating the atrocities of the Nazis in the Pskov region.
    Did the Soviet authorities demand extradition? Why are the legionnaires remaining in Latvia not convicted?

      This is due to the stupid position of the USSR on the national question. Turn a blind eye to the atrocities of Bandera, the Baltic states and the Poles, so as not to offend the "fraternal peoples" and introduce them to the socialist idea.

          forgot about the Finns (though not the "brotherly" people), the Hungarians - and the Romanians - thieves and traders (who told who the occupation was under them). Slovaks say they behaved normally, even fed the local population (according to the survivors).

    It's not about feelings. All Baltic states today need to make * heroes * of Nazi accomplices. In the Baltic states, the descendants of Nazi criminals are in power today. With the defeat of the Nazis, those who smarter fled with the Germans and then the smartest were in the USA.
    It was the Americans who fed anyone who barked into the throne of the SOVIET UNION and its CITIZENS. They created media for war criminals and built radio stations. The ideology of betrayal was introduced in science. No gag. If Goebels with his apparatus needed at least some fact, then for today's Caucasians and their master this is no longer necessary. They simply come up with a topic and then try to introduce it as a fait accompli. Today, this is already perceived as a standard, lying to someone or repeating lies will not lead to a duel or apology, or even a muzzle. Apparently this gives courage and brilliance to the heroization of Nazi accomplices.

    By the way, a few weeks ago there was an article on VO how residents of the Baltic states joyfully greeted the Soviet regime! As always, disputes arose, many began to talk about euphria and the happiness of the inhabitants of the republics, but some commentators noticed that a year later the Baltic people also joyfully met the Germans! And it was noticed that the Balts did not go to the Soviet army in such large numbers as to the German! And this suggests that at the first opportunity, the Arybalt began to fight with the USSR, which was an ocupant for them!
    True, they fought more often with civilians, but the fact remains!
    I think that for those entering the division, one of the incentives, in addition to material support, was the idea of ​​the struggle against the USSR

      Because those who greeted the Soviet and German authorities were different people. The Baltic states were divided according to beliefs. And in the Red Army the Baltic states fought more than against it. It’s just that real heroes were forgotten today in the Baltic states and, most strange, in Russia. Instead, the image of the Baltic Nazi is cultivated.

        Not true. In the Red Army there were Latvian, Estonian corps and the Lithuanian division. But they were staffed to a large extent by conscripts from regions of the USSR who had nothing to do with the Baltic states and those who left the Baltic states with the retreating Red Army, not to mention just Russians and other nationalities. In the national SS this did not work - they blew "purity".

      With the Baltic Nazis, everything is clear: England and America, different there, did not recognize the absolutely legitimate transition of the Baltic Limitrophs to the USSR in the 1940 year, it seems like now they do not recognize the 2014 Crimean referendum of the year. Therefore, they began to feed the "forest brothers" after the war and did not give us these freaks.

      On March 16, 1946, Stalin, at the request of the government of the Latvian SSR, released the legionnaires against whom there was no conclusive evidence of war crimes, there was simply no one to raise the national economy, men (Latvians) either died in the war or were in a camp. The bulk of the Russian SS-sheep were killed as early as 42 -43 years.

    Allow, dear friends, as a resident of Latvia, to acquaint you with a vision of the situation from the other side.
    1. About a crime of the Latvian red shooters.
    If you tell this to the Latvians, they will look at us with sincere perplexity. By the way, I'll join them here.
    The inhabitants of the Livonia province were subjects of the Tsar, later, citizens of Russia. They were full participants in the Civil War. What turns out.
    Portraits of the murderer and maniac Dzerzhinsky are still hanging in the offices of the FSB.
    Scum, a sadist and the last one who drowned Crimea in the blood, destroying thousands of our compatriots - Rosalia Zemlyachka, is buried in the Kremlin wall - a national hero.
    The moral degenerate Lenin, who called for "to shoot without unnecessary red tape", "merciless terror", "by all means hang" - we generally have in the Mausoleum. A hint of burial causes convulsions in the Communist Party.
    But Latvians are bad .... Where is the logic.
    As for the Legion.
    Stupidity and stupidity to write "have not been punished for crimes." From 1945 to 1991, there was enough time. Or were there other laws in the LSSR?
    2. The Nuremberg Tribunal did not declare these units criminal. No evidence has been presented.
    All of the above is just a work of art. Where are the documents, protocols, at least something?

      Do not worry ! We all remember, to serve “our” and “yours” is the life credo of the Latvians. After the war, the central, even southern regions of the RSFSR were starving, everything was sent and settled by you, the USSR created many industries for you, including
      .radioelectronics. And the red Latvian riflemen also remember how many these scum destroyed the Russians and Cossacks. During World War II, you showed yourself to be even greater villains than the Germans themselves, and now you are scolding Stalin and the Communists, and it was they who saved you from the popular wrath of the same soldiers of the Soviet Army (their political officers and prosecutors!). , the attitude of those living was clearly not "fraternal." They quickly forgot that if it weren’t for the Russian tsars, then you wouldn’t have been there for a long time, just assimilated among other nations. Yes, in fact, you never had statehood, because it was given to you by Soviet power, then by Russian power. So I advise you to re-read the story and draw the right conclusions as a young man.

    If all this is true (and I think the truth), then why is nothing done, why are the surviving ss sheep not destroyed on the spot, or not taken out secretly and destroyed? After all, intelligence agencies can do this.

    Correctly in resolving this issue they act only in Israel, there is no statute of limitations committed by the Nazis, regardless of nationality or crime. Well done, how many they found hiding fascist criminals, secretly taken to Israel and .........!

    Good article about Latvian pigs. However, the Lithuanians, Estonians, and the whole of civilized Europe are no less pigs. It is so good that our Muslim partners are actively exploring their territories and women.
