Finnish troops helped Nazis murder Jews during WWII

An Israeli historian praised authorities in Finland on Sunday for publishing a report that concluded Finnish volunteers ’very likely’ took part in World War II atrocities. This came after Finland’s government commissioned the independent investigative report, made public on Friday. It said 1,408 Finnish volunteers served with the SS Panzer Division Wiking during 1941-43.

I dunno, maybe they wanted to invade Russia because Russia invaded Finland and took loads of territory.

Originally Finland joined the Axis powers to regain its former territories (which they did) and they were reluctant to push too far into Soviet territory. I would have to look at the documentation this historian has to determine whether the Finish Government was truly responsible.

I find it hard to believe that anyone would make such terrible accusations on the strength of “ most likely “

Nothing unique. The same occurred in Ukraine, Poland, Romania, Lithuania, etc. Driven by antisemitism or greed. The only difference is some countries admit it while others still deny.

85% of the bolsheviks in the earliest soviet union were Jews. Some killed millions of people. Genrikh Yagoda alone is responsible for the death of at least 5 million civilians and that was in the 30's. Too bad Finland didn't become a part of that great system.

Jews never letting the whole world forget about the "Holocaust" as if it was the greatest atrocity ever committed against humanity

But let's not bring up the genocide of ethnic germans that occurred after WWII. "All the nazis were German, therefore all germans were nazis, therefore genociding germans was good!" Two wrongs making right, with genocides of innocent people...

Waffen SS had little to do with the Finnish government. They were serving in the German military, because that way they could keep fighting against the soviet union.

What's the difference between the holocaust and a cow?

I don't think the Holocaust was that serious TBH. The red cross said only 275,000 people died in camps, from all causes. There is no evidence of death showers. It is just a story to prevent people calling Jews on their crimes.
