In the photo from the Sobibor camp, a Nazi criminal from Ukraine is identified


The Berlin Topography of Terror Museum has exhibited photographs and documents belonging to the deputy commandant of the Nazi concentration camp, Sobibor Johannes Nyman. The presented collection contains 350 exhibits. It was transferred to the museum by the Nazi’s grandchildren. Johannes Nyman died in 1943 during the uprising of prisoners of the death camp.


Until recently, it was known only about two photographs taken in a concentration camp, since the Nazis who retreated managed to destroy the evidence telling about the crimes committed in the camp. Therefore, the new find is recognized as sensational. According to the German historian Martin Kuppers, the specialists of the criminal affairs department of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg are connected to the study of the images.

Of the photographs found, the employees were most interested in the one in which Ivan Demyaniuk, a Nazi criminal from Ukraine who served in Sobibor during the Second World War, was captured.

In the 40s, Demyanjuk was a guard and escorted prisoners to the concentration camp gas chambers. The offender was sentenced in Germany to five years in prison on charges of killing tens of thousands of Jews, and after the appeal was filed, he died in a nursing home at the age of 91.

From the spring of 1942 until the fall of 1943, the Nazis managed to exterminate about 250 thousand prisoners in the camp.

      Maybe. If Shukhevych, Bandera, UPA and other OUN heroes they have heroes, then why not make him a hero. they can do it easily.

Or read about Kossor, he did not confess to “crimes”, so he saw his 16-year-old daughter raped, he signed everything, she was released, and she immediately rushed under the tram.

    German historians unveiled previously unknown photographs from the Sobibor concentration camp. In these pictures, they found guard Ivan (John) Demjaniuk, accused of complicity in the killing of tens of thousands of people in the death camp.

    Here are these pictures:

    To confirm that the pictures really depict Demyanjuk, historians turned to the police. Thanks to modern methods and historical research, it was possible to determine that the photographs are none other than Demyaniuk.
    In 2011, Ivan (John) Demyanjuk was found guilty of the deaths of 28 thousand people in the Sobibor camp during the Second World War. He was sentenced to 5 years in prison. But the verdict never entered into force, since Demyaniuk died before the court had time to consider his appeal.

          If you go deeper, then the lady hackles in full. First he creates such ghouls, and then, people should clean him up. And if people, for some reason, cannot punish the criminal, then all that remains is to rely on "God's punishment." That is, the fact of "creation" is not human in person, but the recompense for sins after death is openly in doubt and depends only on faith, but not on the fact of retribution itself. It’s muddy and naive. I am more tired of the wording “the sentence is executed.” And below is a specific date.

          I would like to clarify. In court, it was not 100% proved that the defendant is the very Demyanjuk. Crimes have been proven. The defense built its position on the fact that an innocent person who was confused with Ivan Demyanyuk, nicknamed Ivan the Terrible, is being tried.

    At the beginning of the 70s, a real policeman worked as a helper in our factory.
    After 25 years of imprisonment, he was arranged to work at our factory. He kept apart from everyone, no one talked to him. Once, when a policeman was sitting in a smoking room, a man came up to him, removed a crowbar from the fire shield and broke it (police officer ) head ...
    What struck me most in this story was what was the attitude towards the Man when he returned from prison. His name was “Death to the enemy '', but everything was easier in life - he just saw how the policemen burned his village, his parents .. .

    The security of Sobibor consisted of 30 SS non-commissioned officers and 120 ordinary Ukrainian volunteers. About 250 thousand people were killed in a camp specialized in the extermination of Jews

    There were several cases of prisoners escaping from Sobibor, most of which were intercepted by the Polish population and the “blue” police. 420 people took part in the mass escape as a result of the uprising led by Lt. RKKA Pechersky, most of whom died during armed clashes in the camp, passing through minefields, being persecuted by guards and intercepted by the local population and the police, 53 people survived.

    After which the camp was closed.

    By a strange coincidence, all the dirty work in both world wars was largely carried out by natives of Western Ukraine.
    Guards in Thalerhof and Terezin, guards in the Nazi concentration camps.
    It does not bother to recall that Khatyn burned the 118th battalion of auxiliary police, also consisting of Svidomo.
