FILE - This June 19, 2013 file photo, a woman stands near a mass grave and a monument in the village of Chlaniow, Poland, that holds the bodies of Poles killed in a 1944 attack on the village by the Nazi SS-led Ukrainian Self Defense Legion. The Associated Press has uncovered testimony that says Michael Karkoc, a Minnesota man who was a Ukrainian Self Defense Legion company commander, ordered his men to attack the village, contradicting claims by the man's family that he was never at the scene of the civilian massacre. The company set buildings on fire and gunned down more than 40 men, women and children. (AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski, File)
