Re: Waslowces #general

Dear Genners,
Avigdor Ben-Dov asked: "Has anyone knowledge of a Ukrainian battalion
organized by the Germans called the "Waslowces"?
They operated in Poland against the Polish and Russian partisans hiding in
the forests and of course murdered Jews as part of their activities. I
wonder if the name is associated with the town in Ukraine of the same name.
I have also seen it spelled Wlasowce."
If you Google: "Vlasov's forgotten army" you will find all the info about
this Russian general and his collaboration with the Nazis. Wikipedia also
discusses this topic.
Succes
Charles Mahler
