New PDF release: Katyn 1940: Geschichte eines Verbrechens (Beck Paperback)

By Thomas Urban

Katyn - der identify ist zur Chiffre für eines der abscheulichsten Verbrechen des 20. Jahrhunderts geworden. Mehr als 20 000 polnische Offiziere, Beamte und Intellektuelle wurden im April 1940 von der sowjetischen Geheimpolizei NKWD kaltblütig erschossen. Erst fünfzig Jahre später räumte der Kreml die Täterschaft ein. Thomas city schildert die Ereignisse und bringt Licht in das Dickicht aus Lügen, Fälschungen und Terror, das die Morde bis heute umgibt. Erstmals beschreibt er die Rolle deutscher Widerstandskämpfer dabei.

Im Frühjahr 2015 ist der seventy five. Jahrestag der Massenmorde im Wald von Katyn. Stalin bezichtigte beharrlich die Deutschen dieser Verbrechen, die zur gleichen Zeit den Massenmord an den polnischen Juden betrieben. Die Nationalsozialisten wiederum sahen in den Morden eine einmalige Gelegenheit, die Alliierten zu entzweien. Während die Angehörigen der Opfer verzweifelt nach ihren Männern, Vätern, Söhnen suchten, lieferten sich die beiden Terrorregime eine Propagandaschlacht, die an Zynismus kaum zu überbieten ist.
