The Lviv pogroms were the consecutive massacres of Jews in June and July 1941 in the city of Lwów in Eastern Poland/Western Ukraine. The massacres were perpetrated by Ukrainian nationalists, German death squads, and local crowds from 30 June to 2 July, and from 25 to 29 July, during the German invasion of the Soviet Union. Thousands of Jews were killed both in the pogroms and in the Einsatzgruppen killings. Ukrainian nationalists targeted Jews in the first pogrom on the pretext of their...
Lviv was a multicultural city just before World War II, with a population of 312,231. The city's 157,490 ethnic Poles constituted just over 50 per cent, with Jews at 32 per cent and Ukrainians at 16 per cent. On 28 September 1939, after the joint Soviet-German invasion, the USSR and Germany signed the German–Soviet Frontier Treaty, which assigned about 200,000 km2 of Polish territory inhabited by 13.5 million people of all nationalities to the Soviet Union. Lviv was then annexed to the ...
At the time of the German attack on the Soviet Union, about 160,000 Jews lived in the city; the number had swelled by tens of thousands due to the arrival of Jewish refugees from German-occupied Poland in late 1939. OUN's preparations for the anticipated German invasion included
Sub-units of Einsatzgruppe C arrived on 2 July, at which point violence escalated further. More Jews were brought to the prisons where they were shot and buried in freshly dug pits. It was also at this point that the Ukrainian militia was subordinated to the SS. In addition to pa
A second pogrom took place in the last days of July 1941 and was called "Petliura Days" after the assassinated Ukrainian leader Symon Petliura. The killings were organized with German encouragement, while Ukrainian militants from outside the city joined the fray with farm tools.
The estimates for the total number of victims vary. A subsequent account by the Lviv Judenrat estimated that 2,000 Jews disappeared or were killed in the first days of July. A German security report of 16 July stated that 7,000 Jews were "captured and shot". The former is possibly an undercounting, while the German numbers are likely exaggerated, in order to impress higher command. According to the Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos, 1933–1945, the first pogrom resulted in 2,000 to 5,000 ...
German propaganda passed off all victims of the NKVD killings in Lviv as Ukrainians, although about one-third of the names on the Soviet prisoner lists were distinctly Polish or Jewish. Over the next two years both German and pro-Nazi Ukrainian press—including Ukrains'ki shchodenni visti and Krakivs'ki visti—went on to describe horrific acts of chekist torture, real or imagined. German propaganda newsreels implicated Soviet Jews in the killing of Ukrainians, and were broadcast across ...
OUN's denials of its role in the Holocaust began in 1943 after it became obvious that Germany would lose the war. In October 1943, OUN issued instructions for preparation of materials that would suggest that Germans and Poles bore responsibility for anti-Jewish violence. Further, OUN wanted to spread disinformation that Lviv's Jewish council blamed Ukrainians for the pogroms only because it was under pressure from Germans to do so. The tone of OUN's leaflets and proclamations also changed, omitt
Unter dem Eindruck des deutschen Überfalls auf die Sowjetunion treffen sich vom 9. bis 12. August die Regierungschefs der USA, Franklin D. Roosevelt, und Großbritanniens, Winston S. Churchill, unter höchster Geheimhaltung auf dem britischen Schlachtschiff HMS Prince of Wales in der Placentia Bay vor Neufundland. Hier vereinbaren sie die Atlantik-Charta, die am 14. August veröffentlicht wird und in der sie die gemeinsamen Grundsätze ihrer internationalen Politik formulieren.
Insgesamt werden acht Punkte festgehalten, darunter: Verzicht auf territoriale Expansion, gleichberechtigter Zugang zum Welthandel und zu Rohstoffen, Verzicht auf Gewaltanwendung, Selbstbestimmungsrecht der Nationen, engste wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit aller Nationen mit dem Ziel der Herbeiführung besserer Arbeitsbedingungen, eines wirtschaftlichen Ausgleichs und des Schutzes der Arbeitenden, Sicherheit für die Völker vor Tyrannei, Freiheit der Meere, Entwaffnung der Nationen, um ein System dauerhafter Sicherheit zu gewährleisten.
Zwei der Punkte beziehen sich direkt auf eine Weltorganisation. Die Erklärung wird am 24. September von der Sowjetunion und neun (Exil-) Regierungen des besetzten Europa unterzeichnet, nämlich von Belgien, Griechenland, Jugoslawien, Luxemburg, den Niederlanden, Norwegen, Polen, der Tschechoslowakei und von Vertretern des Freien Frankreichs. Die Atlantik-Charta wird so zum grundlegenden Dokument für die Vereinten Nationen. Sie hat das Ziel einer besseren Weltordnung und lehnt sich an den Vierzehn-Punkte-Plan von Woodrow Wilson an.
In seiner 2. Sitzung im St. James's Palace in London am 24. September nimmt der Interalliierte Rat die allgemeinen Grundsätze der Atlantik-Charta an.
