Let me state upfront that children and grand children are not to be judged for the actions of their parents or grand parents. Case in point, the documentary My Nazi Legacy: What Our Fathers Did, which examines how two sons of Nazi mass murderers–Hans Frank and Otto van Wachter–assess their fathers legacies. Frank ruled Poland and oversaw the creation of six huge extermination camps. Otto von Wachter was the Nazi in charge in Ukraine and oversaw the mass murder of Jews. The most deadly event was the massacre at Babi Yar (a suburb of Kiev). Hans Frank’s son, Niklas rejected his father’s beliefs and denounced his actions. Horst von Wachter, by contrast, spends much of the documentary defending his father.
Which brings me to the case of Chrystia Freeland, the Deputy Prime Minister of Canada. Chrystia insists there are no Nazis nor Nazi sympathizers in her family tree. This is simply not true. Here is the evidence courtesy of Yaacov Apelbaum at XRVISION.
Chrystia Freeland’s grandfater was Michael Chomiak:
Who was Michael Chomiak? The Chomiak files (# 5693/11) from the Warsaw Institute of National Remembrance, which is part of the state’s Commission for the Prosecution of Crimes against the Polish Nation, tells the story. The first document (see below) confirms that Chomiak was a POI and a target of a Polish intelligence search and that part of his German war record had been recovered by the Polish police. His last known address was an apartment in Cracow.
The second document, dated May 12, 1966, reveals the search for Chomiak led initially to a case of mistaken identity (a peasant named Michael Chomiak who was born a day before the POI). By 1980, Chomiak was in retirement in Canada and had just four years left to live. Polish intelligence wasn’t able to recover all of the German Army records which after the war moved west along with Gassner and Chomiak, The papers Chomiak left behind after his death in Canada don’t reveal what he was doing with the Germans in the
2-year interval in Poland. Polish intelligence suspect Chomiak arrived in Cracow soon after Hans Frank became the governor, offering himself as an agent of influence to inform the Germans on what fellow Ukrainians and anti-Russian nationalists then active in and around Lviv were thinking and planning. His work as a journalist was likely a cover for espionage on behalf of the Germans.
Before Michael arrived in Canada he carried the name, Mykhailo. Here are the family photos. Please note Mykhailo is holding Chrystia’s mother, Halyma in one of them. You can also see a smiling Mykhailo dining with one of the Nazi occupiers of Warsaw:
And here is Grandpa Chomiak with the Nazi Press Chief for occupied Poland, Emil Gassner:
Chrystia Freeland has made no public statement, to my knowledge, rejecting the beliefs and actions of her grandfather. To the contrary, she has studiously ignored the clear evidence that Ukraine’s government harbors and protects modern day Nazis. She is fully on board with backing Ukraine’s war with Russia. She is like Horst von Wachter–willfully blind and unwilling to condemn her family’s dark roots.
Not surprisingly, Chrystia also embraces the agenda of George Soros. The following was posted on her social media. She arranged the meeting:
We are not responsible for what our ancestors did. But when we become aware of heinous acts by parents or grand parents I believe that the honorable course is to speak up and reject those actions and beliefs as incompatible with a free, democrat nation. Freeland insists this is Russian disinformation. It is not. The aphorism is proved true, a picture is worth a thousand words. In my view, Chrystia lacks honor.
