Ukrainians? - Are You Aware Of Whom You Support? (Wołyń, Volhynia Genocide)

Published April 30, 2022 142 Views

The massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia were carried out in German-occupied Poland by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, or the UPA, with the support of parts of the local Ukrainian population against the Polish minority in Volhynia from 1943 to 1945.
The neighbors attacked the neighbors despite the fact they were all living peacefully together through the whole decades.
The peak of the massacres took place in July and August 1943. Most of the victims were women and children. Many of the Polish victims regardless of age or gender were tortured before being killed. They included rape, dismemberment or immolation, among others. The UPA's actions resulted in around 100,000 deaths.
The ethnic cleansing was a Ukrainian attempt to prevent the post-war Polish state from asserting its sovereignty over Ukrainian-majority areas that had been part of the prewar Polish state. The killings were directly linked to the policies of Stepan Bandera's fraction of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN-B) and its military arm, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, whose goal as specified at the Second Conference of the OUN-B on February/March 1943 was to purge all non-Ukrainians from the future Ukrainian state. The massacres led to a wider conflict between Polish and Ukrainian forces in the German-occupied territories, with the Polish Home Army in Volhynia responding to the Ukrainian attacks in kind, on a much smaller scale.
