Judging from Tineye, the film still (shot in color) is widely used, often in b&w as in Oozy's post and sometimes with a caption, like “Just in case you forgot why we don’t praise Nazis in this country Dumb Asses” or “No Mr President these were not ‘very fine people’” or “Good Men . . . just doing their job enforcing the LAW” or even “Who in this photo is a Nazi? . . . According to NYT, this little Polish boy is a Nazi . . .”

Impossible to tell how much of that is in bad faith and how much naive . . . but the St Pete troll factory could produce this kind of stuff by the boatload.

... and I think in this movie, the particular soldier who is about to shoot the child, finally saves the child and carried it away or something.

According to experts and scholars, the 10 stages of every genocide are
Classification Symbolization Discrimination Dehumanization Organization Polarization Preparation Persecution Extermination
... and finally the 10th stage:
Denial ... ocide.html

XYZ Contagion (‘Because the truth is contagious‘), an investigative/research political and historical website, deals also with the Srebrenica Genocide

Here's another one I recently came across. I tried reverse image searching it, only came across a ton of chinese, russian and 404 forums with no discernible info as to its origin.


My guess is that if it were authentic, it would certainly be featured on USHMM, Ghetto Fighters House etc. and since it isnt, it's probably from a documentary made in the soviet union re-enacting nazi atrocities some time in the 50s or 60s?

Yeah, that doesn’t look particularly authentic to me.
A joke going around Moscow during The Great Terror:

The NKVD knocks on a door.
The inhabitants ask who it is.
“You’ve got the wrong apartment. The Communists are upstairs.”
