Ukrainian crimes against humanity

Film | Accession Number: 1989.344.1 | RG Number: RG-60.3467 | Film ID: 2568

Ukrainian Newsreel and Documentary Film Footage about the crimes committed by Ukrainian fascists--bourgeois nationalists-who murdered Ukrainians, Russians, Poles, and Jews in September 1942 near Lake Pisotska in the Vollin area. Shots of criminals and the commandant of Ukrainian police. It is forty years since their crimes, but since there is no statute of limitations for crimes against humanity, the Soviets bring the Ukrainian fascists to trial. Trial footage, including testimonies, witnesses, and shots of civilian audience. Narration argues that Zionists and the Jewish Defense League trained in the United States are just as radical as the Ukrainian nationalists on trial, claiming Zionists as a "fascist quasi-military organization to fight communists." Verdict at trial, guilty of crimes against peace and mankind, guilty of war crimes. Sentenced to death by firing squad.
