5. Oh, you must be referring to these "Ukrainians", right?

And just an FYI, "Akcja Wisla" was perpetrated upon Ukrainians as well as Lemkos, Boykos, Ruthenians and other descendants of White Croatians. I personally know a family whose relatives fought with the Polish army in North Africa against Rommel's Nazi army. They were loyal to their country....Poland. This family lost their home and their land to this operation. The town they and others settled over centuries was ethnically cleansed and the Eastern Orthodox Uniate Church in town was torn down to make way for a playground for "Polish" children. History has a lot of twists and turns and there is always more to uncover that others would rather bury.


Maximilian Masley

Two years after the dismantling of the death camps at Auschwitz (Oswiencim) and Birkenau (Brzezinka) by the Red army, their allies- the Polish army perpetrated an ugly crime on the Ukrainian inhabitants of the territories annexed by Poland (Lemkivschyna, Nadsiania, Kholmschyna and Pidliascha). Immediately following the end of World War II this ethnic group was rounded-up and deported from their historic lands because of their ethnicity. The whole operation happened in 1947 under the name "AKCJA WISLA" or "Vistula Operation". Innocent people were forcibly ousted from their homes, herded into transport wagons and forced to relocate among a hostile Polish population. The policies on whose basis ethnic cleansing was successfully carried out are valid to this day.

"Democratic" Poland has shown no intention of rectifying the wrongs inflicted on its own citizens of Ukrainian descent. It is highly ironic and sad that the same people who honour victims of Auschwitz ignore and thereby insult the memory of Ukrainian victims of Jaworzno. Jaworzno was itself a former Nazi camp called Dachsgrube, not far from Auschwitz. This is hypocrisy of the highest order: the victims of Auschwitz are mourned by executioners of Jaworzno.

Why is the world ignorant of this?
