Ukraine Germany US Nazi Commander

In this picture taken May 10, 2013, Heorhiy Syvyi, 78, left, and Ivan Hrushka share their war memories in their home village of Pidhaitsi close to Ukraine's western city of Lutsk. Nearly two dozen civilians, primarily women and children, were slaughtered in Pidhaitsi. Evidence uncovered by AP indicates that Ukrainian Self Defense Legion commander Michael Karkoc's unit was in the area at the time of the massacre. There is no indication any other units were in the area at the time. Heorhiy Syvyi was a 9-year-old boy when troops swarmed into town on Dec. 3 and managed to flee with his father and hide in a shelter covered with branches. His mother and 4-year-old brother were killed. (AP Photo/Efrem Lukatsky)
