The tragedy of the orphanage in Yeisk, which happened on October 9-10, 1942, is one of the most terrible pages in the history of the Nazi occupation of our Motherland during the Great Patriotic War. In Soviet times, people did not really like to remember her. No, it did not seem to be deliberately hushed up, but for the most part they diligently avoided it, mentioning only in the most general and crumpled form. Yes, the prohibitively brutal destruction of more than two hundred disabled children by the invaders was mentioned as one of the examples of their atrocities. But nobody tried to go into details.
There are several reasons for this. Firstly, unlike the “textbook” and official version, the true events are connected with extremely unpleasant facts about Nazi accomplices from among the former Soviet citizens, and volunteer and very zealous accomplices. Secondly, unfortunately, it so happened that many of the perpetrators of this absolutely monstrous crime escaped responsibility. At the very least, they didn’t get what we needed on time and in full. We must remember this and know the whole truth, no matter how shocking it may be.
Uncles, where are you taking us ?!
Cars that rolled into the yard of the orphanage that autumn morning caused a foreboding by their very appearance. A car and several trucks ... From one of them, armed people fell on the ground like peas, and they began to busily and obviously with a long-developed skill to block all possible escape routes. A few more were even something frightening - with huge, iron-lined bodies, in which there was not only a single window, but in general neither a slot nor an air vent, they were rather like railway cars, for some unknown reason they were put on a car chassis. Of course, neither the children nor their educators could know that the nightmarish "gas chambers" called by the Nazis "gas vans" were in front of them. This sadistic "creation of the German genius" had not yet acquired its terrifying fame ...
Nevertheless, the kids, who, as you know, have a special flair for evil people and evil deeds, tried to scatter in all directions, like frightened chickens. Where there ... Most of the inmates of the Yeisk orphanage by that time were children with cerebral palsy and bone tuberculosis, as well as other similar diseases - more than a hundred of them were evacuated here not so long ago from Crimea. What is there to run - they, basically, walked with some difficulty, moving with the help of crutches or sticks. However, the rest did not have a chance either. The rustling fellows in the form of the auxiliary police were catching the children with a giggle and, like sacks of rags, threw them into the terrible mouth of the "gas chamber" that opened in anticipation of the victims ... On timid questions about where they intend to take the children, the fanatics were sophisticated in "wit": "They will go to the bathhouse ! "," We will take you to the treatment! "," Seeds will be loaded ... "
The hearts of the nurses and nannies who were nearby snapped in anticipation of imminent disaster - something like that they had been expecting all the last time, but in the depths of their hearts they hoped: "Will carry it!" Not carried away ... When the creatures came out of the car, draped in black uniforms with skulls instead of cockades, it became clear that Death had come for the children. That was it. The unfortunate kids fell into the clutches of Einsatzkommando 10A, the killers of which can be safely called the most fierce non-humans even among the hordes of invaders that came to kill us in the 41st. The SS officer walking in front of everyone calmly threw the assembled staff to collect the children and take them out into the yard - they would be "taken for treatment." The translator obediently repeated his words, which no one believed, in Russian. At this time in the courtyard there was an enthusiastic hunt for victims - according to the recollections of one of the miraculously escaped pupils, Leonid Dvornikov, the executioners were doing their job "with wild pleasure and delight", throwing in the back of the "gas chambers" shouting "Uncles, do not hit! For what?" boys and girls, like inanimate objects. As a matter of fact, by that time all these children were already, in fact, dead. Subsequently, it was calculated that the distance from the orphanage to the anti-tank ditch, in which the bodies of his pupils were found after the liberation of Yeisk, was about 3 and a half kilometers. With the concentration of deadly exhaust gases that the "gas chamber" gave in its infernal womb, the victims lived for 10-15 minutes, having died in inhuman torment ...
In 1943, they will be found under a layer of earth, along with their crutches and sticks - 214 people. Some - holding hands, trying to find support from each other at the last moment of death ... The thrifty Germans and their lackeys did not exhaust a single bullet on the kids - this examination will establish for sure. The Nazi extermination machine acted methodically and measuredly - the "European civilizers" who loved the "ordnung" in everything did not stop half way. On the first day, only 160 children fit into the bodies of the "gas chambers", so on October 10 they returned and took the rest. Among them there were 32 children who did not get up from their beds at all ... On the same day, the nonhumans who went into a rage allowed themselves to "have fun". Nina Sholokhova, who turned 17 on that very day, was abused on the way to the ditch - right in the cabin of the gas chamber.
Tellingly, among the children killed were not only Jews or Russian children. Armenians, Georgians, Ukrainians, Tatars from Crimea, Czechs and even a few German kids! All of them were sick, and, consequently, "inferior", and therefore were subject to liquidation. Any action to destroy civilians is a war crime. But this ... What was done in October 1942 in Yeisk, and not only there, and not only then, has no name in human language. Probably, if we find words for this, then we will cease to be people. There can be no “statute of limitations” for such acts, nor any way to atone for them. Perhaps someone will consider my words incorrect, but I will nevertheless allow myself to remind you: today it is the descendants of those who invented the "theoretical foundations" for the events that took place on October 9 and 10, 1942 in Yeisk, invented and assembled "gas chambers", and then used they are against children, demand from Russia to "repent" for the "poisoning" of living and healthy "oppositionists", and they are also eager to "bring to justice" our country.
Einsatzkommando 10A and others - executioners and their accomplices in the faces
What happened that terrible autumn in Yeisk was by no means an "excess" or some out of the ordinary case of atrocity. It was part of a well thought out, perfectly calibrated and coordinated plan, the ultimate goal of which was the complete "cleansing of the living space" for the "superior race" from "non-Aryans", everyone who in the Third Reich was deigned to be ranked as inferior and flawed. Generally speaking, the tragedy of the Yeisk orphanage is an ideal subject for discussion with domestic liberoids and "progressive" "historians", as well as other "cultural figures". And those who propose “to forgive everything and not keep hatred” ... And those who try to tweet about “good Germans” who, you see, “were simply forced to follow orders” ... And first of all, perhaps, with representatives of that vile the breed that loves to fire the "Stalinist repressions" so much, talking about the "hosts of innocent tortured" and convincing that everyone who was leaned against the wall or sent to the camps before the war were not enemies of the people, but completely innocent lambs, slandered by the evil NKVD. Now I'll show you a couple of portraits of these "slandered" ...
But I'll start, perhaps, with the main cannibals. As I mentioned above, the massacre of children from the Yeisk orphanage was committed by thugs from Einsatzkommando 10A, which was part of Einsatzgroup D. These sinister units, whose task was solely to identify and physically destroy the "enemies of the Reich" and "racially inferior", began their activities since 1938, with the Nazi Anschluss of Austria and the occupation of Czechoslovakia. However, their activities took on a truly terrifying scale after the Nazis attacked the USSR.
The formation of the Einsatzgruppen, which were to deal with the extermination of the inhabitants of the Soviet Union, began in the spring of 1941 (a big hello to those idiots who insist that the terror of the occupiers was only "a response to the actions of the partisans provoked by the Bolsheviks"!), That is, approximately when Hitler finally decided with the beginning of the Eastern campaign. At the same time, an order was sent to the army units and formations to provide them with all and complete assistance, signed by the commander-in-chief of the ground forces of the Third Reich, Field Marshal Walter von Brauchitsch. This is the question of the "clean" and "innocent of atrocities" Wehrmacht, which allegedly "only fought." Einsatzgruppa D operated on the territory of the South of Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, Crimea. At the time of the events I describe, this gang of fanatics was commanded by SS Obersturmbannführer Kurt Krisman, Doctor of Jurisprudence, by the way.
There was also another doctor - just a physician, SS Untersturmfuehrer Heinrich Hertz. He was responsible not only for providing medical assistance to his own fellow executioners, but also specifically for the elimination of patients from Soviet medical institutions. Fully "noted" not only in Yeisk, but also, for example, in the regional children's hospital of Krasnodar, where he personally participated in the "confiscation" for the destruction of 42 children - from one year old and older. He was also famous for the invention of a certain "special composition" of black color, which, again, he personally applied to the lips of the kids. Death occurred instantly, but not always - in about half of the cases. Nevertheless, such a wonderful drug was officially patented in Germany. The doctor was very proud of this ... Alas, 10A had enough not only "purebred Aryans" (as you know, until the last stage of the Great Patriotic War, the SS didn’t take anyone), and volksdeutsche mobilized on the spot, but also former Soviet people.
On July 18, 1943, in Krasnodar, the names of some of them became known to everyone - first after the verdict was read in the courtroom, and then after reading the tablets on the corpses of Nazi lackeys who were dangling in fully deserved nooses. Vasily Tishchenko, who voluntarily ran to hire a policeman as soon as the Germans showed up in Krasnodar. He made a "brilliant career" - from a simple executioner to a foreman of the Einsatzkommando and an investigator of the Gestapo. He was atrocious. Ivan Rechkalov, twice convicted before the war - not for "policies", But for the most commonplace thefts. He was very offended by the Soviet regime and enthusiastically welcomed the arrival of the invaders. "He took revenge on the commies" by pushing children into the "gas chambers" ... Ivan Kotomtsev, also a "prisoner of the conscience of Stalin's camps" - however, "spent time" for hooliganism. He entered the police as a volunteer, and was transferred to the Einsatzkommando for special diligence in torture and executions. Mikhail Lastovina, a "victim of dispossession" (though not in prison), got a job as an orderly in the Krasnodar hospital. From personal participation in the murder of 60 patients of this hospital by the invaders, he began his Kholui career, which led to 10A. The list is long - Einsatzkommando 10A was assigned a special police unit, recruited exclusively from local scum. The vast majority of them ended up with a gallows or a bullet. However, alas, not everyone is the same. Moreover, the history of the betrayal that led to the death of two hundred kids from the Yeisk orphanage does not end with the names of these geeks.
Crime without punishment
I must say that the Germans were in it not by accident. The children's institution located on the outskirts of the city, perhaps, would not have had time to attract their villainous attention at all - but “their own” tried. In the course of the subsequent investigation by the NKVD, it was established that the occupants did not have time to occupy the city, when the storekeeper Pyotr Mishenin, who worked in the orphanage, rushed to the city council formed by them, and hastened to inform the new “owners” that “Jews and communists are hiding there - both adults and and children". After that, a "commission" appeared in the orphanage, expelled from there part of the staff (first of all, communists and Komsomol members). And then the remaining employees began to be dragged for interrogation to the police and the Gestapo. The destruction of the orphanage was from that moment only a matter of time. According to eyewitnesses, he was especially zealous in helping the Nazis ... orphanage doctor Vladislav Anikeev! He personally rushed about the wards, diligently copying the children, with special emphasis on nationality and belonging to the Pioneer or Komsomol organization. I don’t know how Mishenin ended - no exact data could be found, but I sincerely hope that it was in a loop. But Anikeev was "punished" for betrayal by 10 years of camps, which he did not even leave completely, having come out under one of the Khrushchev amnesties for Hitler's accomplices. According to the testimony of the townspeople who knew him, he was subsequently completely healthy, well-fed and even cheerful, declaring to everyone that "he fully answered for the past." Nit…
I must say that Kurt Krisman, who commanded Einsatzgroup 10A, lived a quite prosperous and eventful life - after the defeat of the Third Reich, he managed to escape to Argentina, where he hobnobbed with local fascists. In 1956, he became insolent to the point that he returned to Germany, where he lived happily ever after, being considered one of the first wealthy people in Munich. "Justice" got to him already in 1972, but Chrisman said he was terribly ill (he even presented a certificate) and the process was "postponed". In the end, he ended up in prison only in 1980, and made his ends in 1987, exactly 80 years old. Heinrich Goertz did not get even this - he generally quite calmly conducted medical practice (!), Again, in Munich, without even thinking of hiding anywhere. In 1972, however, he was also tried - including for participation in the murder of children in Yeisk. Sentenced, of course ... to 4 years in prison! To this day (if he has not died yet), one of the translators of the Einsatzkommando 10A, who was also directly involved in the events of Yeisk, Helmut Oberländer, is sitting out in Canada, whose extradition Russia has been demanding for a couple of years. The Canadians are openly mocking - they seem to start the procedure of depriving this executioner, awarded the Cross "For Military Merit" 2nd class in 1943, clearly not for his success in the transfer, deprivation of citizenship, then they will stop ... The Nazi grandfather is already old, he is 96 years old and he very much asks not to deport him from good Canada. There are very strong doubts that this will happen.
I apologize if I shocked someone with too much detail on some of the details of the events. We simply must know, remember, not for a second forget about this Evil. Detailed materials on the destruction of the orphanage were kept in the FSB archives under the heading "secret" for God knows how many years. Why?! Why was the criminal case on this fact - including against the last, who had not yet given up the devil, its participants - was initiated by the Investigative Committee of Russia only in 2019 ?! This is how we get “Kolley from Urengoy” and whole generations of young people who perceive the Great Patriotic War at the level of a computer “shooter”. Is reading and knowing about it unbearably painful? That's fine! There is simply no other way. If we ourselves do not injure ourselves with this memory, the next time they come to "civilize" us from the West, the Rechkalovs with the Kotomtsevs and the Mishenins and Anikeevs will be many times larger. We may not survive.
