According to archival figures, the Red Army suffered in Stalingrad a total of 1,129,619 total casualties; 478,741 men killed or missing and 650,878 wounded. The Soviet authorities executed 13,500 soviet soldiers during the battle, equivalent to an entire division. In all, the battle resulted in an estimated total of 1.7 million to 2 million Axis and Soviet casualties. (From the Wiki).
Has the kind reader noticed: The Soviet Army executed 13,500 of its own soldiers to incentivate the others? Now, that is to be Decided to Win! The political leader of the battle was Nikita Khrushchev from Ukraine.
Khrushchev is also notable for leading the collectivization in Ukraine, that resulted in a manmade famine and mass starvation (pic: 1936 Khrushchev and Stalin). The antisemites say that Jews were specially active in this campaign. I bet they were! Only ten years before hundreds of pogroms were carried out by Ukrainian nationalists and the number of Jews killed is estimated to be between 35 and 50 thousand. Archives declassified after 1991 provide evidence of a higher number; in the period from 1918 to 1921, "according to incomplete data, at least 100,000 Jews were killed in Ukraine in the pogroms."
Some revisionist wrote in the comments that we Jews purposefully caused the starvation and massive death of the Ukrainian people. The events happened a hundred years ago and I have no direct information. But Ukrainian peasant's mass starvation came only ten years after the pogroms that killed about 10% of the Ukrainian Jewry. Was there some cause-effect relationship? I dont know, but if I was an antisemite planning pogroms on Jews, I would think it twice and think it thrice. As they say, לא אלמן ישראל - The Jewish People is Not Helpless.
