Description

The events in Eastern Europe and Ukraine during World War II are generally little known and often misunderstood, even though it was here that the war lasted the longest and caused devastation on an unprecedented scale. Millions either lost their lives or became slave laborers. In some areas, underground resistance to Nazi and, later, Soviet rule did not subside until the early 1950s.

Chapters include:

  • Soviet Occupation of Western Ukraine, 1939–41
  • Soviet Ukraine under Nazi Occupation, 1941–4
  • Ukrainian-Jewish Relations during the Soviet and Nazi Occupations
  • Ukrainians in World War II Military Formations
  • Galician Ukrainians in German Military Formations and in the German Administration
  • Soviet Military Collaborators during World War II
  • Bringing Nazi War Criminals in Canada to Justice.

This book will interest those concerned with the history of Ukraine during World War II, as well as the controversy over the presence of alleged war criminals in Canada and the United States.

Contributors include Orest Subtelny, Bohdan Krawchenko, Peter J. Potichnyj, Myron Kuropas, Roman Serbyn, Myroslav Yurkevich, and many others. Augmenting the articles is a 9-page transcript from a press conference discussing Canadian war-crimes investigations, photographs, extensive documentary materials, a chronology of events, and a detailed bibliography.

Ukraine during World War II is a comprehensive guide to one of the most complex aspects of modern East European history.
