The SS in Britain (2001)

Film details

Synopsis

Documentary looking at the SS divisions made up of Ukrainian volunteers during the Second World War and how they were responsible for many murders and atrocities, particularly in Poland. Looks particularly at the 14th SS Division Galizien, and what happened to them after the Second World War when they and large numbers of other ex-SS Ukrainian men were allowed into Britain en masse with a minimum of scrutiny and investigation, even though some members have turned out to be wanted for war crimes.
