The attached article by Timothy Snyder is taken from an address he gave to the German Bundestag earlier this month. It is published by Euromaidan and reprinted in Eurozine. It is worth reading. Most of us in this part of Europe ignore what happened during and after the second world war in Europe between Russia and Germany. The attached article explains how Hitler's policy of colonizing Ukraine was primarily responsible for the extermination war of the Jewish people that began with Babi Yar in Kiev. In addition to the 6 million Jewish victims, the same number of Polish victims (3 million of them Jewish Poles), his war made 6.5 million Ukrainian victims. Germans must remember the truth about the Ukraine for their own sake, writes Timothy Snyder.
