Germany US Nazi Commander-12

FILE - This undated reproduction provided by the Polish National Archive in Krakow, southern Poland, is a SS administrative file probably dated 1944 showing a roster list for the Ukrainian Self Defense Legion, identifying Michail Karkoz as the top commander of II company. The Associated Press has uncovered testimony that says Karkoc, a Minnesota man who has been living in the U.S. since 1949, ordered his men to attack a village that was razed to the ground in 1944, contradicting claims by the man's family that he was never at the scene of the civilian massacre.
