Next Episode of Nazi Death Squads is
Nazi mobile killing squads, the Einsatzgruppen, led by highly-educated officers and aided by local collaborators, systematically murdered over a million Jews. Who were the men who carried out mass murder at close range?
The armies of the Third Reich invaded the USSR on June 22, 1941. Mobile commandoes, the Einsatzgruppen, were following their advance to Stalingrad with the mission of eliminating all Jews on the conquered territories.
Carnage continues from September to December 1941. After the EZG's intervention, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and the Baltic states are declared "Judenfrei": free of Jews.
Faced with the advancing Soviet troops, Nazi Germany decides to have the bodies of death camp victims dug up and burned in graves.
After being judged at the Nuremberg trials, the majority of those responsible for the murder of nearly 1.5 million Jews would walk free in the 1950s.
End note from this episode: "Of the 3000 members of the Einsatzgruppen responsible for the assassination of millions of people, including more than one and a half million Jews, only 200 were put on trial."
