Tonya-machine gunner

Tonya-machine gunnerShe hoped to get three years probation, but the Soviet court sentenced her to capital punishment. 1979 year in the USSR was declared the Year of the Woman and she hoped for the favor of the court. But in the morning of August 11 1979, she was shot. In the USSR, it was the last major case involving traitors and executioners who collaborated with the German occupiers during the war and the last and only time that a woman was shot.

In Vyazemsky boiler

Even the investigators did not expect such a harsh sentence. No one argued that Antonina Makarovna-Ginzburg’s guilt in mass killings during the war was fully proven. But on the other hand, more than 30 years have passed since then, and a girl born in a simple working family, who turned 1941 in 19 years, could not be considered a convinced traitor and Nazi. Moreover, the circumstances in which she found herself simply did not give her a choice. But the court, meanwhile, reasonably reasoned that the crimes committed by Tonya did not have a statute of limitations, well, the circumstances ... the person always has a choice and the court considered that in the distant 1941 year Antonina Makarova made her choice. Tonya came to the front from Moscow, where, shortly before the war, she came from her native village Malaya Volkovka, Smolensk Region. In Moscow, the girl was going to study, and then get a job, but all plans were canceled by the war. Tonya took machine-gunners courses, then nursing courses and already in this status and went to the army to defend the capital. Where she got into the terrible meat grinder of the Vyazemsky boiler, in which about a million soldiers and officers of the Red Army perished, there, surrounded by a large number of corpses, the young orderly once and for all breaks down the psyche. This is followed by several endless months of leaving the encirclement, wandering through the Bryansk forests with random satellites, as well as she, heading east. In the end, Tonya was left completely alone and walked without sorting out the roads, begging in the Bryansk villages, until finally she got to the village of Lokot, where she fell into the hands of the policemen. They raped her, watered them with moonshine, fed them and raped them again, and one morning, completely drunk, were taken into the courtyard, seated at a machine gun and ordered to shoot at the exhausted people standing at the end of the yard whose hands were tied. And Tonya pulled the trigger ...

"I did the work ..."

An entry from the interrogation report of Antonina Makarova-Ginzburg of June 1978: “Everyone who was sentenced to death was the same for me, only their number changed. Usually I shot people in 27 groups in person, as many people were holding the camera of the police station. I shot people in 500 meters from the prison, not far from some pit, where they threw corpses. People were chained to the pit, one of the men dragged a machine gun, at the command of the authorities opened fire and fired until everyone fell. So I did my job for which I was paid. It was necessary to shoot not only male partisans, but also members of their families, children, and women. Later, I tried not to recall this. ” For such a “job” Tonya received German marks 30 a day, no one had any symbolism in this amount or not. At first everything for her was like in a fog, and before being shot she was watered with schnapps, but then she got used to it and drank after the execution. Since childhood, one of the heroines of Tony was Anka-machine gunner, and here you are, a real machine gun, lie down and shoot. To whom to shoot, Tone at the moment did not seem important. Upon completion of the “work”, she removed the clothes she liked from the corpses, washed them from the blood, and changed them to herself. Carefully and carefully handled the machine gun, cleaned it, in the evenings went to the dance and drinking with the policemen and occupiers. How many people she shot, Tonya did not count, but according to eyewitnesses, Antonina was the only executioner who carried out the death sentences in Lokoti. After the war, SMERSH representatives found in dug pits around 20 000 bodies.

Second Life

In 1943, she was lucky, she picked up a sexually transmitted disease and was sent to Germany for treatment, thus, when the Red Army freed Lokot Toni-machine gunner there was no longer there. Having escaped from the German hospital, Antonina was able to fix her documents and disappear into the rear, she again got a job as a nurse in a military hospital, where she met her future husband, married him and took his last name.

She was looking for more 35 years. The facts about her existence were enough - many of the captured policemen told about Tonka the machine gunner, the case of the executioner girl passed from hand to hand, sent to the archive, and re-emerged. The KGB did not sit back, everything was carefully and secretly checked! Antonin Makarov is of similar age, but was not among those sought.

And Antonina Makarova was not at all hiding, except for a change of last name to her husband’s last name. They lived together in the quiet Belarusian town of Lepele, after the war Antonina gave birth to two daughters to her husband. Her portrait was hung on the board of honor, she went to performances in front of schoolchildren, was awarded commemorative medals and gifts. Their family was a strong and honored family of city veterans. “It’s impossible to be afraid all my life, for the first 10 years I was still waiting for a knock at the door, then I calmed down completely, there are no such sins in the world that would persecute a person all his life,” she later said during interrogation. Later it became clear why she had been so unpunished for so long. As a child, when enrolling in school, the teacher incorrectly recorded it in the metric, the patronymic she wrote down her last name. In 1976, one of the Moscow officials when traveling abroad honestly listed the names and surnames of all their relatives, there were five children in the family, all were Parfenovs, but for some reason Makarova was recorded, from 45 by the name of her husband Ginzburg. Thus, the special services went on the trail of the executioner girl.

"Honored frontline"

They did not immediately detain her, for a whole year the investigators checked all the facts in order to remove all doubts and God forbid, not to be mistaken, punishing a person respected in the city, a war veteran. Police officers and other witnesses were secretly brought to Lepel for identification, all of them admitted to a very old Tonka-machine-gunner woman. During the arrest, she did not lie and resist, at the first interrogation she calmly and clearly began to talk about what was happening in the German occupation, that for so long and hard she tried to forget. Of the many thousands of bodies found in Lokot burials, only 168 people were identified, it was Antonin Makarova who was officially blamed for their murder. In 1978, the Military Collegium of the Bryansk Regional Court issued a death sentence for the defendant, in August 1979 was carried out.

        It would not hurt the author to study the material before writing.
        After the war, SMERSH representatives discovered about 20 corpses in open pits.

        Why not a hundred thousand. What motivated the author to write explicit nonsense? The author at least found out how many people lived in Lokta, which he called a village, in the district, in the district of RONA (Makarova was a full-time executioner of the district prison of RONA). Some mythical representatives SMERSH. Is that their business?

        The act of the commission for establishing the facts of the atrocities of the German invaders in the Brasov district (whose center is Lokot) dated October 22, 1945, gives the figure of 5 people. Moreover, it is not clear how the figure correlates with those killed by the hostilities and those killed by the partisans and the Red Army and their accomplices. Act of Sep 397 27 drawn up by order of the Bryansk Regional Committee - 1943 people (of which 5395 were executed, -5245 were hanged). The most massive burial at the stud farm number 150 - 17 thousand people. In other areas of the RONA: Suzemsky - 2 people., Komarichi - 1096, Navlinsky - 943. I will not give figures for Sevsky, Dmitrovsky, Dmitrievsky, Mikhailovsky, but it’s not difficult to establish them. On the Sevsk website, a figure is given - more than 2539 people, but those who were stolen to Germany are named exactly - 1500.

        Behind the executioner Makarova, the figure is 1 people. This does not make her less evil.
        The figures are taken from I. Ermolov "The Russian state in the German rear" M, Tsentrpoligraf, 2009, pp.55-58. Ermolov, Candidate of Historical Sciences, adheres to a pronounced anti-Soviet position, but gives figures with references to TsNIBO and GABO.

        PS. Even to the smallest detail. "Tonya" did not walk "all alone" "without understanding the roads." She left the encirclement with Nikolai Fedchuk, who brought her to her native village Krasny Kolodez near Lokot. He went home to his family, and the police took her.

          “They disgraced me in my old age,” she complained in the evenings, sitting in a cell, to her jailers. “Now, after the verdict, I’ll have to leave Lepel, otherwise everyone will point a finger at me. I think they will give me three years conditionally. For what more Then you have to somehow reorganize your life. And how much is your salary in the pre-trial detention center, girls?

      She catches too selectively. Surely among the Nazi henchmen who parade along the streets of Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius in parades, those who climbed out in Western Ukraine do not have those whose hands are covered in the blood in the blood of people of different nationalities, including Jews. I have not heard a single indignant exclamation from Tel Aviv against such gatherings.

        They ask only for their own. They probably did not have a hunchback who was plaguing the gums with the Germans and had forgiven them half of the debt.

          These are neo-Nazis, and this, of course, must be stopped. We are talking about Nazi crimes of the times of World War II. How many Nazi criminals fell under the warm cover of the US intelligence services. How many got out in the Baltic states. Or does Israel need the Nazis, who killed exclusively Jews, and destroyed the Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians, Poles, Gypsies, and others. Do they live?

            It turns out like this. Moreover, you can think about the selectivity of the Nazis. For example, are you aware of cases where in the modern world (the same USA and the Baltic states) the Nazis oppressed the Jews? I don’t.

        The Israeli Embassy in Latvia issued a statement in which it expressed outrage at the publication in the largest Latvian newspaper "Latvijas Avise" about the Latvian pilot Herbert Cukurs accused of war crimes

          by your link:
          There, in a villa rented by Mossad, four Israeli intelligence officers, including Yariv, were waiting for him. According to the preliminary plan, they were to neutralize Cukurs, carry out a quick trial on behalf of the exterminated Jews of Latvia, and then liquidate him. However, the 65-year-old Latvian turned out to be in excellent physical shape beyond his years and put up desperate resistance. During the ensuing fight, he tried to grab the pistol he had with him. As a result, one of the Mossad employees opened fire on him from a pistol with a silencer. Cukurs's body was placed in a box. A piece of paper was attached to him with the following inscription in English: “Considering the grave accusations against Herbert Cukurs, and mainly his personal responsibility for the destruction of 30 thousand men, women and children, we decided to sentence him to death. The sentence was executed 23 February 1965 by those who will never forget

          When using materials, a reference to "" is required.

          Just confirmation of what I said. This happened in Brazil in 1965. Can you imagine the fact that Israel demanded at least to ban the marches of fascist shortcomings in modern Baltic countries or demanded extradition from the USA

      None of the locals went to the job of an executioner. What is fraught with Saburov showed on the example of the first head of RON Voskoboynike. Therefore, this person turned out to be a suitable shot. She agreed to "work" as an executioner. She lived in the same stud farm, in which there was a district prison, in the same place behind the stud farm and shot. I never went out and drank. Who could "rape" her there? The same as she - the policemen from the prison guard? Most likely, the 18-year-old girl had it "by agreement".

      By chronology. She was first detained in the Red Well. These are some policemen. Then they were taken to Lokot, where they were interrogated and offered "work". I do not know who interrogated, but I will assume that according to his position it was the head of the military-investigative collegium (department) of RONA, former Makhnovist Pratsyuk. After that, she was sent not to a cell and to a court, but to a separate room in the same stable and was given a machine gun. There were already other policemen in the guard of the prison.

The occupation authorities in the search for the underground involved the Zeppelin group, the punitive detachments of the SS division "Dead Head", the spy school "Orion-00220". On May 6, 1942, the most active members of the underground were arrested and tortured at the same time. Lyalya Ubiyvovk was tortured and interrogated 26 times.

    I agree with NOBODY EXCEPT US.
    time was .... bad .. incomprehensible.
    Defke was 18 years old. If I meet 18 year olds ... 35 year old mares with wind in their heads. What could be expected from a woman in those years, raped with a broken psyche.
    They survived as best they could. If not you, then you.

    I myself don’t even know how I would behave in that situation.

      What is this nonsense !? What time is still incomprehensible? The enemy came to your land, kills your fellow citizens, but here “they survived as best they could”? 1 Let it be better to perish than to become a traitor and dishonor your family and descendants.

    I read the article and comments to it. Words such as "man", "woman" sound. Yes, this does not fit such definitions, even the way some have expressed: "the dog is a dog's death." It's too offensive for dogs. This Tonka is something that defies definition, dirt, slime ... even these definitions are too honorable for "this something".

        So Mr. Fate drew ...

        You are wrong, fate is feminine in Russian. So if you are irresistibly attracted to the English forms of speech etiquette then deign to say "miss". lol
        But seriously - none of us can be absolutely I am sure that in such a situation I would have acted differently. It is easy to blame the girl sitting in a comfortable chair in front of the monitor. But honestly, look at yourself and say - are you absolutely sure that you would not have acted in the way Antonina did? Are you sure that you wouldn’t break down, but would rather not lie down behind a machine gun, but stand in front of it?
        The totality of conditions and external influences that change our motivation, actions or the result of actions can be called fate. This is what I called the grin of fate.
        I do not condone this Antonina at all, but doesn’t it seem to you that she has already suffered her punishment and is unworthy of so zealous and emotional washing of the bones of the executed?
        This is what I wanted to tell you that you men are excessively tough and even, at times, cruel. And judging by the minuses, you did not understand this. It's a pity...

    not everything is as simple as described in the article. Elbow during the war was the capital of a vast region, under the control of civilians. Russian. They had their own court, their own money, their own laws, they paid tribute to the Germans, but the Germans did not climb into their territory. With this = republic = everything is not clear to the end. ............

      The Germans very closely controlled this "self-government" ... The "Lokottsy" conducted the main hostilities only with the support of Hungarian and Slovak units. And the last, in the ditch where the shot by Tonka-machine-gunner fell, over 2 bodies were found, isn't it a lot?
