Two of the Soviet investigators who complied the fraudulent report pinning the blame for the 1940 NKVD massacre of 15,000+ Poles at Katyn on the Germans! Also signed the official Soviet report on Auschwitz.
This is an order, dated March 5, 1940, signed by Stalin and Kaganovich to execute Polish army and police officers. One of the results of this was the Katyn Massacre, the shooting of 15,000+ Poles by the Soviet NKVD.
When the Germans discovered the mass-graves in early 1943, they invite an international commission consisting of physicians from twelve different countries to inspect the site of the crime and carry out autopsies. German propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels launched a huge propaganda campaign about the Soviet massacre of Poles.
At the main Nuremberg trial, the Soviets blamed the Germans for perpetrating the Katyn massacre, and the British, French and Americans, let them do it.
In an elaborate fraud, a lengthy Soviet report was submitted as evidence that the Germans massacred the Poles, but framed the Soviets for the crime, and several false witnesses testified at the trial—that the Germans committed the massacre. But this was at least once accusation levelled at the Germans to which they managed to successfully defend themselves. The evidence that the NKVD committed the crime was immense. So the charge, which is in the indictment, was quietly dropped.
Not until 1989, did the Soviet prime minister Mikhail Gorbachev finally admit the massacre was committed by the Soviet NKVD.
LIES, LIES AND MORE LIES
The Soviet report which blamed the Germans for committing the Katyn Massacre was listed at Nuremberg as 054-USSR. Evidently this report is a complete pack of lies, fabricated by a pack of liars with an agenda. Two of the liars who signed this report were:
"Member of the Special State Commission, Academic N. N. Burdenko"
"Member of the Special State Commission, Mythropolitos Nikolai"
The official Soviet report on Auschwitz was listed at Nuremberg as 008-USSR. Two of the men who signed this report were:
"The Academic N. N. Burdenko"
"The Mytropolitos Nikolaus"
Some of the most authoritative books on the Holocaust quote from USSR-008, the Soviet report on Auschwitz which was signed by two proven liars.
Nikolai in Russian is Николай, and these reports are the German translations of the original Russian reports. USSR-008 (Auschwitz), was translated from Russian by a N. Schwernik, and the name of the translator is not mentioned on USSR-54. This explains why his name was correctly translated as Nikolai on one, and incorrectly as Nikolaus on the other. It seems most unlikely that there was two mytropolitos with such similiar names in The Extraordinary Special State Commission for the Study of Crimes of the German Nazi Aggressors, and a googlebook search for "Nikolai Lomakin" produces many results noting his involvement with the Nuremberg trials.
Above is a video still of Mytropolitos (a title in the Russian Orthodox Church) Nikolai Ivanovitch Lomakin, Archdeacon of Leningrad Churches and Rector of the Leningrad Seminary, the Permanent Dean of Nikolai Bogoiavlenski Cathedral, testifying at the main Nuremberg trial, on February 27th, 1946.
Mytropolitos or Reverend Nikolai, was excused the formality taking an Oath when he entered the witnesses box, as he claimed:
I belong to the Orthodox Church, and when I entered the priesthood in 1917 I took the oath to tell the truth all my life. This oath I remember even to the present day.
His testimony was only about the Siege of Leningrad, and he relates numerous tales of Germans murdering children, and plundering, desecrating and destroying churches.
The other signatory to both the fraudulent Katyn and the Auschwitz report, was the Nikolay Nilovich Burdenko (1876 - 1946) a highly decorated Soviet surgeon and academic. As senior member of The Extraordinary Special State Commission for the Study of Crimes of the German Nazi Aggressors, he headed the January 1944 Burdenko Commission (obviously named after him) which sought to shift the blame for Katyn from the Soviets to the Germans. An international press conference was held on January 22, 1944, an exhibition of evidence was presented, a propaganda film was made, even a military/religious ceremony took place to honour those murdered by the "German-fascist invaders."
