Aphrodisiac you must be proud of your ukrainian "heritage", wonder if your grandfather was one of those ukrainian heroes who nailed our children to the doors.Very very drastic picture.
A polish girl cut in two (while still alive) by ukrainians using a saw, one of the most hideous torture murders ukrainians commited on polish women and children was slowly sawing them apart with large two man saws.
Speaking of churches, second row from the uppermost, left side is the picture of a priest Bolesław Szawłowski.
The priest and 222 of his polish parishioners were murdered in a church by ukrainians, the church was then burned.
1938 had to be one of the craziest years in Europe. Perhaps it and years near it should be written off as an aberation LOL
You're absulutely right, 1938 was the first year when ukrainian nationalism reared its head showing its true face, this was the year when ukrainian fascists first abused polish civilians on any notable scale though Poland was not yet defencless so ukrainians refrained from killing people.
When Poland became defencless however stuff like this happened:
179 polish civilians murdered, only the courage of the local polish militia saved 500 further Poles.We need blood, let loose a sea of blood, we need to terrorize, lets make it hellish having free ukrainian state as a goal lets reach it using all resources, all routes, lets not shy away from burning, pillaging or murder, there's no ethics in war.
Mychajło Kołodzinśkyj - a true ukrainian hero.
A murdered polish civilian, ukrainians gouged out his eyes, tore out his tongue and pierced his cheek with a bayonet.
Another village where ukrainians murdered 500 Poles, a brief translation of the plight of one of the families that managed to survive the massacre of polish civilians by ukrainians.
Okazało się, że podpalili właśnie ten sąsiedni dom, gdzie babcia z dziećmi chodziły spać, a ich to był ten co drugi, nie podpalony. Siedziały zdrętwiałe, bez ruchu, zahipnotyzowane rzezią, która widziały przez maleńkie piwniczne okienko. Tylko mała Renia (Teresa) wtuliła się w swoją mamę i nie patrzyła. Bała się ognia. Zaczęła wołać: - Nie chcę spalić, wole rosscelać. Babcia zakryła jej buzię, uspokoiła i potem nawet już nie zapłakała.It occured that they set fire to that neighbouring house where granny and the children were sleeping(...) They sat without motion hypnotised by the slaughter, which they saw through the tiny basement windown.
Only tiny Renia (Teresa) hugged her mom and didnt look. She was afraid of the fire. She started crying "i dont want to burn, rather be shot". Granny covered her face, she calmed down and didnt even cry anymore.
A polish man tortured to death by ukrainians circa 1943, note the mouth cut open while he was still alive, the pool of blood under the head indicates he was scalped, a popular torture method among ukrainians in their heroic fight against unarmed civilians.Really unpleasant sights - you have been warned.
A small polish girl murdered by ukrainians after they stopped a train full of polish passengers and killed them all.
A polish family murdered by ukrainians, husband and wife and two little girls aged 6 and 7.
Before death all victims including the mother and children were burned, pierced with needles and had their limbs chopped off with an axe, their teeth were knocked out and their eyes gouged out.
