The Orthodox Nationalist: Was Erich Koch Working for Stalin?
Today’s episode of The Orthodox Nationalist is about Erich Koch, Reichskommissar in Reichskommissariat Ukraine from 1941 until 1943. His reign of terror turned a strong, anti-communist nation into an anti-German force that lost Hitler the war. Hitler and Himmler saw the Slavs as sub-humans regardless of the pleas of Rosenberg and Canaris. As late as 1944 and early 1945, they refused to organize any substantial Russian or Ukrainian force.
Koch instituted forced labor and slave camps. His penchant for hunting led to families and villages being uprooted when they got in the way of his favorite grounds. He called Slavs "European negroes" and said they were too "lazy" for civilization. He also introduced abortion and contraception to the area to control the population.
Rather than organizing a nation of millions to smash Stalin, Hitler and Himmler, through Koch, sacrificed hundreds of divisions that could have been assisted by strong Slavic armies. All offers of assistance against partisans were rejected and millions of tons of grain were shipped out of the country. Kiev and other major cities were sealed off, leading to famines that killed thousands. Within a short time, the Ukrainian and Russian population hated the Germans.
This episode argues that this factor, more than anything else, cost Hitler the war and led to the Gulag empire stretching from Alaska to Berlin.
Koch was condemned after the war but was never executed and strangely, he died of a natural death in 1986. He was never the subject of assassination attempts, like all the other SS men in the area were. All attempts to extradite him to the USSR were refused and Koch is the only example of that on record.
The argument that he was a Stalinist agent is almost irrefutable.
