On Thursday, Lyudmila Zakharova, the head of the local Jewish cultural centre, said that the last-known living survivor of the Sobibór death camp died at the age of 92 in Ryazan (Ryazan Oblast. Central Federal District) RF. The burial of Aleksei Vaitsen, who lost all his family in Nazi death camps during World War II, will be on 16 January. Vaitsen took part in the uprising of Sobibór prisoners in 1943, one of the two successful revolts at Nazi death camps. After the war, he appeared as a witness at the trial of Sobibór officers. The Nazis murdered at least 250,000 people in Sobibór, in eastern Poland.

Russia honours the victims of the Nazi beasts… Ukrainian neofascists honour those who helped the Nazis push Jews in the ovens. Diaspora “Ukrainians” sheltered war criminals and whitewashed their legacy. I call that evil… I’m not alone. The commies brought a few of the Ukrainian guards who served at Sobibór to trial in the USSR. In April 1963, a court in Kiev found ten former Ukrainian guards guilty and sentenced them to death, one of the defendants received 15 years in prison. That’s a major reason the Ukie neofascists hate the USSR and communists… the Sovs hunted down Nazi collaborators who helped in the Holocaust and communists preached (and preach) against the racism of Nazism and neofascism (the Galician collaborators who aided the Holocaust were hardly philo-Semitic). If you support the present Ukrainian junta, you’re a Holocaust Denier… let’s not put too fine a face upon it.

Light a candle in Aleksei’s memory… the fact that he wasn’t a Christian doesn’t matter. You can commemorate whom you will when you light a candle in the church. Say a prayer for the rest of his soul… we’re Christians… that’s what we do.
