Notes

Abstract:
Beginning in 1965, the Soviet Union launched an extended series of trials of former Nazi collaborators known as Wachmanner. These Soviet citizens had served as SS guards for Germany during World War II. The majority faced trial immediately after the war, but received amnesty in the mid- 1950s. From 1965, the Soviet authorizes reopened military tribunals and brought these men to trial once more. This research focuses on several trials in the western Ukrainian city of L'viv from 1965-1969. The trials display the post-Stalinist Soviet legal system at work with its extensive and thorough investigations. They also provide information about the Holocaust in Ukraine, including details regarding massacres, labor camps and Jewish resistance. Additionally, the trials raise important questions about Soviet justice and memory. This study focuses on the trials as part of a greater phenomenon in domestic and global politics during the Cold War, as well as their pedagogical role at the local level.
