Minneapolis man thought to be Nazi commander after Associated Press report

15 June 2013

Residents of a Minneapolis neighborhood are reacting this morning to allegations that one of their neighbors was the commander of a Nazi SS unit during World War II. The investigation found that 94-year-old Michael Karkoc was a top commander in the Ukrainian Self-Defense Legion.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Poland: Ukrainian nazi officer ‘harboured by the US

Saturday 19th November 2016

POLISH experts are probing whether the US harboured a World War II Ukrainian nazi officer for decades, a prosecutor announced on Thursday.

The Associated Press news agency identified Michael Karkoc

now living in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

as a commander of a unit in the SS-led Ukrainian Self Defence Legion, which is accused of burning villages in Poland.

Poland subsequently opened a probe into Mr Karkoc, 97, who denies that he fought in the war.

The accusations are based on wartime documents, testimony from other members of the unit and Mr Karkoc’s own Ukrainian-language memoir.

Prosecutor Dariusz Antoniak said experts would confirm whether Mr Karkoc is the same person as the nazi commander by comparing facial features in photos of him now with those in a 1940 picture taken in Ukraine.

German prosecutors shelved their investigation of Mr Karkoc in 2015, saying he was not fit to stand trial.
