The NS-Policy of “Endlösung der Judenfrage” and the Soviet Medical Staff among the Jewish Prisoners of War in Central Ukraine

New post on the EHRI Document Blog examines the place and role of the Soviet medical staff among the Jewish prisoners of war (PoWs) in the camps in Central Ukraine. It analyses the policy of the Nazi occupiers of Ukraine towards Jewish medical personnel in the POW camps between the autumn of 1941 and the summer of 1943. Based on key documents and interviews with former prisoners of war, the paper examines the conduct of Nazi officers in the camps and the so-called Holocaust by bullets, the important work of Jewish medical personnel and civilian hospital workers who risked their lives to save Jewish prisoners. This article is part of a special thematic series of the EHRI Document Blog Holocaust in Ukraine.
