Audrini Massacre

In early January 1942, a town containing orthodox Christians was burned to the ground in Audrini, Latvia, and its occupants were shot, including women and children. The responsible Nazi collaborator, Boleslavs Maikovskis, lost an appeal against denaturalisation in the US in 1985, in a case recorded here. He eventually fled to Germany and died in 1996 without serving time for his crimes. However, as the NYT summarizes, Maikovskis acknowledged that the killings took place:

By 1975, he was no longer denying he had been a police officer during the Nazi occupation, and by the time of a deportation hearing in 1981, he said he had been the chief of police for the second precinct of Rezekne from 1941 until the Germans began their retreat in 1944. He also said that after several Latvian policemen were shot to death in the village of Audrini by Soviet partisans in 1941, he ordered the arrest of every man, woman and child in the village, from 200 to 300 people, under orders from his police superior.
Also under orders, he said, he ordered every house to be burned to the ground. But he said he had nothing to do with the public execution of 30 villagers in the Rezekne town square and the slaughter of the rest in a nearby woods. He said he was in church during the public execution. 
The deportation hearing had noted that:
A copy of a document dated December 31, 1941, which bore an indication that the original had been signed by Maikovskis's immediate supervisor, stated that "[d]uring the last six months, our work has been dominated by [inter alia ] our desire to free ourselves of Communist and Jewish leftovers...." And an SS report dated February 2, 1942, subsequent to the Audrini incident, noted:
The inhabitants of the village of Audrini are Russians--of orthodox faith--all told 48 families. Blind in their nationalism, they supported the Red Armyists 100%. In this village of Audrini there lived 5 armed Red Army men, 3 former members of the Militia, 3 prisoners of war who had escaped from prison camps, and 11 former prisoners of war.

Question for deniers: if non-Jewish children could be killed in this manner, why not Jews?

- He eventually fled to Germany and died in 1996 without serving time for his crimes. -

- Mr. Maikovskis was charged with mass murder in Germany, which had jurisdiction over Latvia at the time of the executions. But his trial, which began in 1988, proceeded slowly. In February 1994, the court ruled he was too frail to continue. -

So much for "Kangaroo Courts".

From the Article.
- . Perhaps as much to embarrass the United States as to bring a war criminal to justice, the Soviet Union, which had no extradition treaty with the United States, demanded his extradition, anyway.

The United States refused, but the Immigration and Naturalization Service began an investigation whose hearings, court actions and appeals lasted more than 20 years. -

So much for Eastern and Western "Collusion" in "Faking" the Holocaust.

Instead of the summary by NYT, could you give us his own words, Harrison?

And how does this retribution have anything to do with your Holocaust?

This blog is absurd.

Now, this is where Roberta jumps in and says "Oh, we got Franz freaking out again."
Well, no, not by a long shot.

"FRANZ" is not only freaking out again, he's also producing hollow incoherent rubbish again, and he's also again projecting onto an opponent the apparent problems he has with his effeminate tendencies. How often do I have to tell the poor fellow that no one here is interested in his personal afflictions?

As to what the massacre he calls "retribution" has got to do with the Holocaust, apparently it hasn't yet dawned on "Franz" that this blog site's topics are not necessarily related to the Nazi genocide of Europe's Jews but also cover Nazi crimes against non-Jewish victims.

If you're going to publish non-holocaust stuff, then you should also publish crimes against Germans. Right should be right, my dear falsifiers!

Begin with "Das Massaker von Lippach" and "Die Morde von Eberstetten" by Wendig. But we really should begin longer back in time, but this is a good starting point.

Aiding and abetting terrorists is even frowned upon by America and Israel, the two beacons of righteousness and 'democracy' (read Judaic puppet's).

Harrison is a hypocrite and a damned liar.

As for Roerberto we all know what sort of type this man is - a slimey, unsuccessful lawyer with a terrible speech impediment, dependant on medicine to keep his energy alert and on top. The man has apparently been institutionalized too.
Clearly we shouldn't listen to a person who's so mentally unstable?

But I guess it takes mentally unstable folks to wilfully propagate hatred, misconceptions and outright lies.

Goldhagen's Willing Liars.

Why, one can see the drool running down poor hysterical "Franz"'s chin as he furiously hammered the above collection of hateful (and self-projecting) invective into his computer. :-)

We also have crimes against Germans on the blog site and the forum, by the way - even though both are first and foremost dedicated to the crimes of Nazi Germany (i.e. the crimes that scum like "Franz" denies):

Film shows execution of German civilians in Prague in 1945

Red Army Crimes on German Soil 1944/45

Father, shoot me

Carpet Bombing and Nuclear Bombs

The Fate of Ethnic Germans in Yugoslavia

Notes from a Land of the Dead

And there will be more in the future, like a series about Dresden myths I'm preparing, after the excellent book of Dresden bombing survivor and historian Götz Bergander.

But these items you list are denial of crimes committed against Germans, or at the very least merely denigration.

Nah, do us all a favour and continue on with the lies about your darling Jews.

What junk you are, Roberta. What junk.

Poor self-projecting "Franz" sounds like he is about to burst out crying.

"Denigration", the poor soul calls objective assessments of crimes committed against German nationals.

One wonders what "Franz" would do if he came upon a denier skunk like himself, albeit with an opposite ideology, who calls for "names" and or "independent forensic examination" (moreover with foreign observers watching the procedures) as proof that the crimes addressed in the articles linked to actually occurred. :-)

Short circuit and change the subject.

Franz Holtzhäuser said...

Cry? Hardly.

The only ones who must be crying are you and your darlings, my dear RoboCop, because you fail to produce forensics for your lame claims.

And Harrison is just a dumb fool. His story about German brutality was likewise a dumb entry, totally laughable!

Actually one can find plenty of forensic and/or archaeological evidence to Nazi crimes in some of these blogs. If "Franz" could provide nearly as much forensic and/or archaeological evidence as concerns his «pure unadulterated horror and terror», that would be something. But "Franz" can produce little more than piss-poor rhetorical shit, moreover the same shit over and over again.
