Kiev 1941 tijdbommen

Bericht door pjotrsmits »

Beste,
Ziehier mijn vraag:
Ik heb ergens gelezen (osprey) dat de Sovietsin 1941, na Kievverlaten te hebben, verschillende tijdbommen plaatsten.
De meest "gekende" is de explositie van het Continental hotel, waar het Duitse Hoofdkwartier getroffen werd.
Kunnen jullie hierover meer vertellen?
Hoeveel doden waren er?
Hoeveel andere exploties?

Mvg,

Peter

Looting began immediately. Then the Germans moved into Kiev's downtown on Kreshchatik Street. On September 24 - five days after the Germans entered Kiev - a bomb exploded around four o'clock in the afternoon at the German headquarters. The Germans were shocked. Then they cordoned off the area and gathered people in the vicinity as suspects. Then another building on Kreshchatik exploded. The Germans - and those they had assembled - fled for safety.

For days, bombs exploded in buildings in the Kreshchatik that had been occupied by Germans. Many Germans and civilians were killed and injured.

After the war, it was determined that a group of NKVD members were left behind by the Soviets to offer some resistance against the conquering Germans. But during the war, the Germans decided it was the work of Jews, and retaliated for the bombings against the Jewish population of Kiev.
