In 1943, one of the greatest and bloody tragedies of World War II unfolded in Volhynia. The Ukrainian nationalists killed and tortured more than 60 thousand Poles. Historically, Volhynia has always been under the control of the opposing sides. Ukrainians inhabited the area, which, after World War I, became part of Poland. A group of Ukrainian nationalists tried to tear away a piece of Polish territory to establish a state of their own. They planned to build Ukraine for Ukrainians only, and their ideology was based on hatred. What led to such unspeakable tragedy?
