(on the final solution to the Ukrainian question)

Mikhail Frenkel

“I emancipate you from the invented by Jews humiliating chimera of conscience,” Hitler instructed his soldiers.

Emancipated. The German Nazis committed unheard-of atrocities during World War II. Including in Ukraine, completely captured by them.

One of the greatest crimes of the Nazis was the Holocaust. The tragedy of Babyn Yar and at other execution ravines had already happened, when in January 1942, in a villa near Lake Wannsee on the outskirts of Berlin, the Nazi leadership adopted a resolution on the “final solution to the Jewish question.” Behind that bureaucratic formulation was an ominous intention to exterminate all Jews in Europe. The Nazis tried very hard, but they did not manage to complete the task set by the Führer, having killed “only” 6 million Jews.

Exactly 80 years have passed since the Wannsee Conference. Now the Ukrainian lands are invaded by those who, as shown by the events of the russian aggression, have been tasked this time with the “final solution to the Ukrainian question.”
