Jews are an amazi ng people! They represent about 3% of the population in America but they have so many doctors and other successful people. No one gave them a damn thing. They work hard to become successful. I admire them :) Look at the Muslims. What a peaceful free society they have created. NOT

I suppose you know everything about this man's past by reading this article then, huh?

I suppose you know everything about the 14th Waffen Grenadier Galician Division from this article then, and that they were commanded by German, Austrian and Ukrainian officers, that registration was mandatory for all able Ukrainians of age and that 82,000 Ukrainians had to join in a time with no economy and no other means of income, or that the Galician Division was investigated for many years and was never linked to any atrocities in official accounts?

I guess we can know no more about history than what this single article gives us, huh?

Look beyond the page, moron. There were also plenty of German soldiers that did the bidding of the SS under fear of death.

Nothing written links Hitler to the death of the Jews. That doesn't mean he wasn't responsible

Forgiveness is nice, especially when YOU'RE the POS, right con ???

Oddly enough, you've "GIFTED" humanity with your baggage and identify with a war criminal.

How about a few seconds of introspection and a cry for JUSTICE for the families YOU'VE BOTH RUINED.

Yeah, we get you're a racist POS, who only cares about yourself and how you can use others AND WE REJECT YOU/YOUR MESSAGE as a society of laws, consequences, and justice.

The blather about God is pure BS, since people suffered and we HAVE LAWS.

Just a moniker switch, waiting to happen.

Oddly, this game has "run" on with ever greater embellishment, monikers, and lies for years.

It's annoying to "con", some of us have character...

All con has is hate, blame, and stories to justify the FAILURES.

An Associated Press investigation found that Karkoc served as a top commander in the Ukrainian Self-Defense Legion during World War II. The unit is accused of wartime atrocities, including the burning of villages filled with women and children.

Karkoc told American authorities in 1949 that he had performed no military service during World War II, concealing his work as an officer and founding member of the legion and later as an officer in the SS Galician Division

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/14th_Waffen_Gren... (1st_Ukrainian)#Accusations_of _war_atrocities

The village of Pidkamin had a monastery where Poles sought shelter from the encroaching front. Around 2,000 people, the majority of whom were women and children, were seeking refuge there when the monastery was attacked on 11 March 1944, by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (unit under Maksym Skorupsky command), allegedly cooperating with an SS-Galizien unit.[50] The next day, 12 March the monastery was captured and civilians were murdered (at night part of the population managed to escape). Other civilians were also killed in the town of Pidkamin from 12 to 16 March.[50]

Estimates of victims include 150 by Polish historian Grzegorz Motyka,[50] and 250 according to the researchers of the Institute of History of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences.[41]

For more information about the subject, see: Palikrowy massacre

Allegedly another sub-unit of SS-Galizien also participated in the execution of Polish civilians in Palykorovy located in Lviv oblast near Pidkamin (former Tarnopol Voivodeship). It is estimated that 365 ethnic Poles were murdered including woman and children.[50

Ethnic cleansing of Poles in Volhynia and Galicia[edit]Main article: Massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia
Beginning in 1943, the UPA adopted a policy of massacring and expelling the Polish population of Volhynia and Eastern Galicia.[70] The ethnic cleansing operation against the ethnic Polish population began on a large scale in late February of that year and lasted until the end of 1944
Between August 21 and 25, 1943, during the Third Convention of the OUN, Roman Shukhevych accepted the "Volhynia stategy," an operation which aimed at Poles and had been conducted by Dmytro Klyachkivsky.[clarification needed]

The methods used by the Ukrainian nationalists in both Galicia and Volhynia consisted of killing all Poles in the villages, then pillaging the villages and burning them to the ground. Victims, regardless of age or gender, were routinely tortured to death.

In late 1943 and early 1944, after most Poles of Volhynia had either been murdered or had fled, the killings moved to the neighboring province of Galicia. In March 1944, the main Command of the UPA ordered the ethnic cleansing[75] of all Poles from Galicia. Unlike Volhynia, where Polish villages were destroyed and their inhabitants murdered without warning

By the end of summer 1944, mass acts of terror aimed at Poles were taking place in Eastern Galicia to force them to resettle on the western bank of the San river. A popular slogan during the period was "Poles beyond the San
The total number of Poles murdered specifically by UPA is unknown. Estimates of the Polish deaths in Volhynia are over 50,000. The number of UPA victims in Volhynia, Galicia and current Poland combined ranges from 80,000 to 100,000 [79]
