Baltic Unit : for the destruction of the Jewish population in the area of Novogrudok involved soldiers and officers, 36 Police Battalion, formed in early 1942 by volunteers in Estonia (Tartu, Kuressaare, Hiiumaa, Saaremaa). According to the testimony of former detainees after the war protesters, August 3-4, the entire 36-Police Battalion was sent to Belarus, where the station Navaelnya unload it, was sent to the Novogrudok and placed in barracks on the outskirts of the city. Mass executions by soldiers of the battalion were carried out in the Novogrudok Navaelnya station and near the village Dyatlovo, at 20-30 kilometers from the Novogrudok.

German scholar, Christian Gerlach in the monograph “Costed Death” (1999) in “The deportation of foreign Jews in Belarus” has described a policy of destruction of the Jews deported from Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic [120]. More than 35,000 Jews from Germany and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia were deported to the Minsk ghetto [37].

German historian Monica Kingreen says that within 11 months of 1941-1942 from 250 European settlements in Minsk was deported 15,500 Jews, of whom only 500 survived. These data provided the basis Belarusian historian Kuzma Kozak argued that in this period, Minsk was the “principal place of destruction” [119].

In 1943, an armed uprising in the ghetto Glubokoe [124] [128]:

The uprising began on Aug. 19, 1943, organized by Comrade. Lieberman. Prearranged signal all rushed to the breakthrough of barbed wire fence. Began a battle with the Germans and the police. First of all grenades were thrown at the machine-gun nests, the sentries on the towers, a police station. The Germans were stunned by such actions and opened artillery fire, tanks approached, but nothing could keep this onslaught, the Jews resisted, and one bunker the Germans could not take the whole day … were killed and wounded 100 Nazis. Part of the Jews went into the woods, and most were shot. Died a heroic death and the organizer of the uprising Comrade. Lieberman

On April 27, 1943 he was expelled to Prague where he was arrested by the Gestapo in relation to the assassination of Kube. In early 1945 Yermachenka went to Germany.

German historian Hannes Heer ( Eng. ) article “The Wehrmacht and the Holocaust.” Heer said that they were not counter-insurgency operations, and the mass killings of civilians, and points to the cruelty and sadism inherent in the German armed forces [26] [96] .

http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/holocaust_and_genocide_studies/v017/17.1prusin.html

Both the Krasnodar and Khar’kov trials omitted mention of the Nazi murder of Jews. Although by 1943 the Holocaust had become common knowledge and the ESC possessed massive evidence of the scope of the genocide, the tribunals referred to the executions of Jews as “massacres of Soviet citizens.” The indictment in Khar’kov referred to the ghettoization of Jews as the “forceful resettlement of Soviet citizens” to the outskirts of the city. 27 The omission of mention of the Holocaust from the hearings in Krasnodar and Khar’kov reflected the Allies’ ambiguous attitude towards the murder [End Page 6] of Jews. The Moscow Declaration, for example, mentioned the Holocaust only in passing as “crimes committed against Poland.” For the United States and Britain, as for the Soviet Union, the main task of the war was to defeat Germany, and therefore the notion of the Germans as the aggressors received much more attention from politicians in the West than did war crimes and crimes against humanity. 28 Similarly, the Soviet government considered Jewish-centered publicity to be undesirable. Instead, the Krasnodar and Khar’kov trials were intended to demonstrate Nazi plans to destroy the entire “Soviet people” regardless of ethnic distinction.

[Later trial:] The Soviet prosecutors proffered charges similar to those in Nuremberg—crimes against civilians and POWs, and the destruction of property. This time, however, the concept of “war crimes” (prestupleniia voiny or voennye prestupleniia) was used interchangeably with the traditional Soviet terms for “atrocities.” 35 In contrast to the Krasnodar and Khar’kov cases, the postwar trials introduced Holocaust-related crimes as one of the principal charges against the defendants. The Soviet government took into account the Nuremberg proceedings, in which a great deal of attention was paid to the genocide of Jews. More important, however, the scope of the Holocaust and the involvement of the SS, the regular armed forces, and the civil administration in its implementation provided the tribunals with an ultimate opportunity to convict the majority of the defendants.
(Siegfried Ruff, executed. Baltics)

Although the Soviet press still downplayed the Holocaust by pointedly referring to the murdered Jews as “Soviet citizens,” the trials became the first instances that revealed to the Soviet public the scope of the Jews’ tragedy and made it an inseparable part of the history of the Great Patriotic War.

Jeckeln admitted to the interrogators that, as the HSSPF in the Ukraine and the Baltic lands, he supervised the annihilation of Jews by the Einsatzgruppen, police, and Waffen-SS. In November 1941, he testified, Himmler summoned him to Berlin and ordered the liquidation of all Jews in the Baltic region and Belorussia. The Reichsführer-SS stressed that in case of friction with the civil administration (the Reichskommissar for the Ostland, Hinrich Lohse, apparently objected on economic grounds to the murder of Jews), Jeckeln should specify that this gruesome task was to be carried out on Himmler’s orders and per Hitler’s wishes. After arriving in Riga, Jeckeln proceeded with liquidating the Riga ghetto, where by late fall 1941 the Einsatzkommandos and the police had murdered between 20,000 and 25,000 Jews, including 8,000 children.

——
Scheer (d 1946) recounted Himmler’s order:
Prosecutor: Regarding the destruction of the Soviet citizens of Jewish nationality, what instructions did you receive from Himmler?
Scheer: He told us that any Jews who had remained alive [after the first wave of killing] were to be destroyed. This instruction I passed on to my subordinates during a conference in Kiev.

pretrial interrogation, however, they had admitted that while the SS and police commanders reported to their own superiors, these branches had to inform rear area supreme military leaders of all punitive and repressive measures. Erdmannsdorf maintained that by the time he arrived in Mogilev in August 1944, all the Jews had already been murdered. He recalled a June 1944 military conference, at which the Reichsführer-SS informed the gathering that the Jewish population of Europe had been all but annihilated. “This had to be done,” insisted Himmler, “for otherwise we would have had to do it in the future.”

If the generals contested their culpability for the murder of Jews, they had to admit that local German commanders were directly responsible for running POW camps, where large numbers of Soviet soldiers and officers were murdered or had starved to death.

*footnote:
104. Despite the harshness of the Soviet military tribunals, during the period 1945-1952 they sentenced to death no more than five hundred Axis personnel. In May 1947 the death penalty was abolished, and the majority of defendants in the subsequent trials received lengthy prison terms of up to twenty-five years. By the mid-1950s, those who had survived Soviet prisons and camps were repatriated or extradited to the German Democratic Republic, where some found employment with the state police and other government institutions.

Himmler, in his own words:
http://www.ess.uwe.ac.uk/genoc­ide/SS3.htm
We were the first really to solve the problem of blood by action, and in this connection, by problem of blood, we of course do not mean anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism is exactly the same as delousing. Getting rid of lice is not a question of ideology. It is a matter of cleanliness. In just the same way, antisemitism, for us, has not been a question of ideology, ‘but a matter of cleanliness, which now will soon have been dealt with. We shall soon be deloused. We have only 20,000 lice left, and then the matter is finished within the whole of Germany. But for us the question of blood was a reminder of our own worth, a reminder of what is actually the basis holding this German people together.

evidence: On June 25,1942, The Telegraph, British newspaper, ran a story about the mass murder of Jews in gas chambers at Auschwitz. The headline read “Germans murder 700,000 Jews in Poland.” According to this first report, which was also broadcast on the radio by the British BBC in June 1942, a thousand Jews a day were being gassed.
