The tragedy of Galich. Concentration camp for Russian

In 2007, a scandal broke out in Austria, which opened nearly century-old mystery about the unimaginable cruelty of the Austro-Hungarian authorities in relation to the Ruthenians. In 1914, they were victims of appalling ethnic cleansing, what today is called genocide. This is a shameful fact in modern Europe prefer not to remember. Austro-Hungarian occupiers Russian lands was the world's first concentration camp Talerhof, which lasted from 1914 to 1917. It was intended only for the Russian — Ukrainian Writes and let you go. Until the winter of 1915 in Talerhof no barracks and people were lying on the ground under the open sky in the rain and cold. More than 100,000 of the Galician Ruthenians were physically destroyed by the authorities of Austria-Hungary. People were hanged, shot, tortured, humiliated, cutting off an arm or leg. Brutally tortured people cutting off the lips, ears and fingers. The main fault of these people — devotion to Orthodoxy, all-Russian unity, native culture and language.
