Description:
Voice over narration:
"These are Soviet roads. Lemberg, the city shows the signs of heavy battle.Bavarian mountain troops, the same troops who in the fall of 1939 fought for this city, have captured it again this time. The Ukrainian population heartily greets the German troops as their liberators from the bloody terror of Bolshevism. The Jewish agents of the GPU had slaughtered countless Ukrainian nationalists just prior fleeing the city. Thousand of innocent men and women were victims of the Bolshevik bloodbath. Here the bestial cruel murders took place.And they set fire to the evidence of their indescribable crimes at the prison, which has been captured by German troops. The fire has already been put out. And thus ceaselessly come out these monstrous criminal discoveries. The victims of these bestial murders are dragged out to be identified.Men and women, children and the elderly, none escaped this example of inhumanity. With knives, axes, hand grenades and machine pistols were these innocent victims slaughtered and martyred by the Bolshevik murderers."
