Memorial Stones at Treblinka Death Camp
Ukrainian Nazi SS murdered thousands here.
Every stone represents a village, a town, a city
Where Ukrainians Nazis took Jews to be slaughtered.
My friend, the noble gentleman, Michael Steeler, took on the Vatican single-handedly and fought until his last days on earth to expose the Vatican's support of the Ukrainian Nazi Galicia SS.
Even through his final illness, Michael used all his time, his last bit of money, probably his last postage stamp, to expose a terrible wrong - the blessing of the Ukrainian Galicia SS Nazis by the Vatican.
Michael appeared on CBC Television's THE FIFTH ESTATE to tell the inside story of his struggle for justice against the Vatican for its support and cover-up of its ties with the Ukrainian Nazis.
THE BLESSING OF THE GALICIA SS BY THE VATICAN
" Between 1918 and 1939, Uniats in Galicia also gradually began to return to Orthodoxy, despite ferocious Polish repression,. By 1928, there were 40 Orthodox parishes there and eventually some 50,00 returned to Orthodoxy. However, repression continued there until the Second World War. Sadly, under instructions from the Vatican, after 1939 the latinized Uniat episcopate showed enthusiastic loyalty to the new Nazi regime. Indeed, the head of the Uniats in Galicia, 'Metropolitan' Andrei Sheptitsky, actually 'blessed' the 14th SS Division, recruited in Galicia, and their genocidal massacres. Senior Uniat clergy in Galicia also supported nationalist Ukrainian organizations. These were notorious for their murders of Communists, Jews, Poles and Orthodox clergy and they continued their terrorist activities into the early 1950s. As a result, after World War II, Sheptitsky's successor, Joseph Slipy, and four other Uniat bishops were arrested by the new Soviet regime for collaboration with the Nazis, as were quislings throughout liberated Europe.
