Alex Yeliseenko -- Apparently shortly after the German occupation of Lvov (L'viv) in 1941, German military photographers filmed the aftermath of a Soviet "clearing murders" event. I've seen snippets of one film which showed corpses lined up on the ground outside a police building or prison. The filming is referenced in a quote from Alfred de Zayas, The Wehrmacht War Crimes Bureau, 1939-1945, at: ... 6403#46403

The "clearing murders" at Lvov are referenced at:

Massacre in Lvov, Ukraine 1941
Soviet clearing murders 1941
and in posts at: ... 0526#90526 ... 0827#90827

I may have some stills from one of the films, which I'll post if I can find them and if the pictures are within the forum's atrocity photos guidelines (posted at ) See also the pictures at ... 524#826524 and the discussion following them.
