This is what Dmytro Klyachkivsky an close friend to Bandera said.
And this is what Josef Biss and his Polish army did:
Like the year before, on March 10, 2010, at the cemetery in Sahryn (near Hrubieszów) mourning prayer was served for the Orthodox Ukrainians (...)
Olga Basarab - a Ukrainian woman, political activist: arrested on accusations of spying, tortured and murdered by Poles in 1924:
She died in prison in unclear circumstances. The Polish government was accused of torturing her to death, although this accusation was never conclusively proven . Martha Bohachevsky-Chomia from Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies Press claims the Polish government initially presented her death as a suicide but subsequent exhumation of her body showed that she had been murdered in their custody.
Bereza Kartuska Concentration Camp - hundreds of Ukrainians died, thousands tortured in 1934-1939. Many who were in this Polish camp became the leaders of UPA later on.
Jaworzno - Polish concentration camp:
A separate subcamp existed for the ethnic Lemko and Ukrainian prisoners... the special subcamp of Jaworzno on May 5 and the number of these prisoners eventually totalled almost 4,000 (including nearly 1,000 women and children); the vast majority of them arrived in 1947..
Roman Kisiel - leader of Polish Chlopski Battalion:
Those are the places and number of Ukrainians murdered by this battalion according to Polish sources.
What is interesting, the literature presented as a source can be found in the following Polish sources:
Romana Kisiela Sępa", Pamięć i Sprawiedliwość nr 2 (2005)
- translation: "Remembrance and Justice" - so, this is your justice?
Roman Kisiel - "Bez munduru my żołnierze 1939-1944", Warszawa 1969
- trans.: "Without a uniform we are soldiers 1939-1944" - yes, you are, indeed.
And the list of these brutal murders is endless.
In regards to Józef Biss - he was exonerated by the Polish court in 1991:
How is that? Where is your justice? You jump around on Bandera, why not start with Biss?
Let's come to the conclusion that both sides did atrocities, both sides were equally barbaric in many cases and both sides regard the actions justified: "because you started first and we retaliated blah-blah-blah", "we just closed your libraries, burnt churches and prevented you from getting jobs and live like humans and you, bastards, killed our women and kids; how brutal you are against our civilized actions". It is a pointless conversation because you don't want to accept the guilt of BOTH. I do. If you don't and start putting me "first started" BS, then there is no point in continuing.
denying the monstrous atrocities commited by UPA on Polish civilians
I don't deny as I don't deny monstruous Polish atrocities committed on Ukrainian civilians. Jozef Biss taught me something and I hope Bandera taught you something. You are reasonable and oftentime we have no trouble to find a common language.
