    Murder and rape were an integral part of the war in general. All sides were guilty. In the beginning, it was the practice of the Nazis. Adolph Hitler, or one of his underlings, issued a stipulation that such incidents would not be considered a crime by Germany. This brutality was met by equal or even more severe measures when the ground was retaken by the Soviet Union and the Allies.

    1946?
    You mean when 6,000 Poles were being executed by Jewish Communist authority Jakub Berman, and thousands more by Jewish Communist authority Salomon Morel?

    How did Ukrainians treat Poles?
    Ukrainians killed about 100,000 Poles in Wolyn, and Eastern Galicia.

    I'm pretty sure, he's talking about the pre-WW2 fictional Bromberg Massacre, in reality the Bromberg Massacre happened a few days into WW2, in response to local Germans killing Poles.

    Wikipedia admits Sonderkommandos were usually Jews.

    1. I would have thought to help these guys. I do not consider it possible to do this.
    2. I believe that we can not interfere in the affairs of Germany and Poland
    3. I believe that Britain can declare an opportunity for Germany, but Britain and its people should not be responsible for Poland.

    It doesn't really matter. The rape, torture, brutality, and murder was strongly encouraged by Adolph Hitler and his Circle of Hate. The result was revenge-minded troops when Germany was falling. The Malmedy Massacre became a battle cry for the Allies marching into Germany. Both sides committed atrocities in the fever of battle.
