Rabbi recalls that half of his family was murdered by Ukrainian Nazis – ECD1 / TCO1

“The heroes of Ukraine are Petliura, who killed 200,000 Jews, SS Roman Shukhevich, Stepan Bandera, Yaroslav Stetsko, who said, ‘All Jews must be exterminated,’ and Bogdan Jmelnitski, who killed 300,000 Jews. Every year in Kiev there was a parade of the SS ‘Galicia’ division and our Foreign Ministry protested about it. They are scum! This is a neo-Nazi regime. Half of my family was killed in a pogrom by the banderists and petliurists,” he said.

Between June 30 and July 5, 1941, thousands of Jews were murdered in Lvov. The Einsatzgruppen organized the pogroms with the help of pro-Nazi Ukrainian paramilitary units led by Bandera.
