Nicole, Besides 33,000 (I am more than sure that the number of Jews killed there was higher - by the way many of my relatives were murdered there)there were tens of thousands of Soviet soldiers and resistance fighters. While there were definitely Ukrainians who helped Nazis, there were many more Ukrainians who fought against the Nazis, including those who risked their lives to hide their Jewish compatriots. I honestly think comparison of Ukraine with Lithuania and Latvia is highly inappropriate.
