UKRAINIAN DOCU-FILM ON THE HALYCHYNA DIVISION

19.05.11


The Ukrainian Division "Halychyna" has never been far removed from controversy.  Within the Ukrainian community it has been viewed as a formation that took up arms to fight only against Stalin's Red Army and everything that it stood for.  In the 1980's and later it was accused of perpetrating War Crimes in Slovakia, Huta Pienacka, and for its activities during the Warsaw Uprising (though no member of the Division was actually ever charged with committing War Crimes).

It is not our intention to open up a fresh debate here on the Division but we have been forwarded a link to a 2005 documentary film on the history of the Division which shows footage/images that have, perhaps, never been previously seen.  The narrative is bland and to the point and is, unfortunately, only in the Ukrainian language.  

A translation is necessary if you do not understand Ukrainian and further reading is essential!
