If you have any doubts about the Nazi ideology and the prevalence of followers in Ukraine, please see the following snippet from the 2015 documentary, What Our Fathers Did – The Nazi Legacy. The film shows Philip Sands, a Jew and a prominent London-based human rights lawyer (his grandfather and other relatives were killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust in Ukraine) and the sons of two Nazi officials overseeing the extermination of Jews in Poland. And Ukraine-Nicholas Frank and Horst von Watcher.
Son of Nicholas Frank Hans Frank:
After the German invasion of Poland in 1939, Frank was appointed Governor-General of the Occupied Polish Territory. During his rule, he established a reign of terror against the civilian population and was directly involved in the genocide of the Jews. He was employed in forced labor and supervised four extermination camps. Frank was head of the general government until its fall in early 1945.
After the war, Frank was convicted of war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg Trials. He was executed and hanged in October 1946.
For those unfamiliar with Poland’s role in the Holocaust, all mass extermination camps were set up on Polish territory – in Auschwitz / Birkenau, Belzac, Chelmano, Mazdenak, Sobibor and Treblinka. About 50% (i.e., 3 million) of all Jews killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust were responsible for these six camps. Hans Frank directly supervised the four murder factories.
Nicholas Frank does not speak kindly of his father. He hated the late Hans Frank for his brutality and inhumanity.
Horst von Watchter sings a different tune about his father, Auto von Watchter. Otto von Watchter was the Nazi governor of Ukraine and came up with the idea of forming an SS department consisting of Ukrainian recruits:
The idea of organizing a section of volunteers from Galicia was proposed by Dr. Otto von Watcher, the German governor of District Galicia. He suggested creating a Waffen-SS division consisting of Galician volunteers and designed for regular combat on the eastern front. 14th Voluntary Division S.S. Galicia The announcement was made in April 1943 at ceremonies across Galicia. At least 50 documents, including clippings of contemporary newspapers, radio broadcasts and speeches, were recorded on April 28. The first phase of recruitment was held in June 1943. Initially Wächter’s proposal (which he sure would be supported by Ukrainian circles) was rejected. In Berlin, the Watchtower was able to obtain support from Henrik Himmler, who had stipulated that the division would be composed only of Galicians, whom Himmler considered “Aryan-like.” The words “Ukrainian”, “Ukraine”, the word “Galician” could not be used when addressing the section, emphasizing the Imperial Austro-Hungarian tradition. David Marpels suggested that the section be titled “Galicia” to ensure strict German control to avoid direct use of the inflammatory term “Ukrainian”.
Otto von Watchtower went into hiding at the end of World War II. He sought refuge with a Catholic priest but died in 1949 of kidney disease. Polish authorities wanted him to face trial for killing 100,000 Poles.
In the following video clip, you will see Ukrainians in 2015 burying the remains of Nazi soldiers, wearing Nazi regalia, and celebrating the legacy of the 14th Volunteer Division SS Galician. Her son, Horst, is not expelled by his father’s inheritance.
Russia’s allegation that Ukraine still harbors Nazis, albeit third-generation Nazis, is true. You can read more about this in my previous post, yes, the Ajan Battalion and the Nazi Competitors.
