Britian knows who commited the crimes and after the war gave them a safe home. In Ukraine, they know and one person said the families need to come to terms with their families misdeeds.
Carol yes,post war Britains record is rather patchy on this I will grant you,for example,all "cossaks"(who had faught under germany) were sent back to the Soviets after the war when a good half of them had never been "soviet citizens" yet an entire division of Ukrainianes was re settled here with no questions asked.The reason,an entire division of dedicated anti communists was a usefull asset at the start of the Cold War.Much the same reasoning applied in the States, Werner von Braun being the most obvious candidate, he of V1 and V2 fame and knowing participent in the nazi slave labour trade (his factories employed slaves he knew about) was snapped up by the US govt' and went on to kick start the Nasa space programe.....The US also allowed the vast majority of jappanesse war criminals to go unpunnished as japan was going to be a vital ally against the Reds.
I guess I was just wondering if anyone else thinks about this? Carol
I guess you could say ,every day I pass the local Ukrainiane club and know it was set up by former members of the SS Galizian Division I think of this a little . My village in the imidiate post war period was a melting pot,many Poles and an equal amont of Ukrainianes settled here,for around 5 or 10 years,so local word of mouth goes,these 2 groups stayed as far apart as possible,after this they began to realise a ashared feeling of exile and wartime misdeads by either side wre left in the past as new lives were being carved out.
