Stalin Burned 100s of 1000s of Russian Peasants’ Homes, But Everyone Blames Germany – Another WW2 Anti-German Slander Goes Up in Smoke


Russians frequently cite this alleged war crime as Exhibit A of German brutality during the war. Despite existing in the ‘Workers Paradise for 23 years, Russia’s peasants were as they were in Imperial Russia subsistence farmers, barely scratching out a living. Burning their homes and barns almost ensured that they would perish over the harsh winter. Now it turns out Stalin’s Jewish henchmen did it.

Deception is a very Bolshevik trick – do something incomprehensibly evil, and then blame your enemy for it. The NKVD at the time was dominated by Jewish revolutionaries, and they hated these deeply Christian, salt of the earth peasants, and were happy to destroy them.

Very few people know the detail of Joseph Stalin’s notorious Torch-Man Order. As a consequence people little realise that images depicting German atrocities are falsified. Filmed atrocities were the responsibility not of the Reich but of England and America’s Soviet allies. There can be no excuse for using images of one’s own crimes to stigmatise one’s enemy. To do so to justify war is a war crime. The banality of evil is that the Torch-Man Order is censored in the West and disguised behind the bland index Order Number #0428.

The detail of this disreputable Order is confirmed as accurate by the Russian government. Stalin’s Order #0428 authorised November 17, 1941, instructed Bolshevik irregulars to destroy everything within 40 to 60 kilometres of the rapidly advancing German forces.

Stalin’s burnt earth policy was falsely claimed to be to deprive the Axis armies of sustenance. Stalin realised that communities terrorised by the Bolsheviks over twenty-five years welcomed the invading Reich armies as liberators. Churchill’s ally also knew that upon liberation entire Central European communities would assist the German occupiers. In Stalin’s eyes, potential collaborators are collaborators and deserving of liquidation. Churchill agreed.

The Torch Man Order’s purpose was to indiscriminately slaughter communities before their being caught up in the German advance. The Order gave specific instruction that trained irregulars, wearing uniforms of captured and killed German troops would indiscriminately kill peasants on an industrial scale. Especially sought for this purpose were uniforms of the Waffen SS.

Western media claims such a suggestion is Nazi propaganda. This begs three questions:

1) The Reich controlled Europe between Moscow, Finland and the Black Sea. Why were these atrocities carried out only on Soviet territories before their being occupied by the Reich?

2) Why would any army film and widely distribute images of atrocities that would reflect badly on them and later indict them on war crime charges?

3) Where is the logic in an advancing army destroying its means of sustenance and support as it advances? These are questions of logic that simply cannot be answered in a way that would support victors’ spin. For such reasons open debate by Western media is off-limits.

In fact, the German policy was precisely the opposite of that of Britain and America’s ally. The function of the Reich’s Ostacker Program (Eastern Fields Program) was to restore the lands and return the rural property to the peoples of the regions occupied by the German forces, as they did in Ukraine: (Archive Series 429, roller 461, General Use Division, Foreign Units East li H 3/70 Fri 6,439,568th Filed: National Archives Washington).

The Torch-Man order signed by Stalin was released by the Russian government. The Order specifically carries instruction that it was ‘important to leave a few survivors who would report the supposed German terror attacks’. This strategy was confirmed by Axis troops who, having taken into captivity partisans wearing Reich uniforms, conceded their reason for doing so.

Order Number #0428 is quite specific and uncontested:

All settlements, in which German troops are found, up to a depth of 40 60km from the main lines of battle, are to be destroyed and set on fire; so too all such situated 20-30km from the roads. For the total destruction of the settled areas, the Soviet Air Force will be made available. Artillery and rocket launchers will be used extensively, as well as intelligence units’ skiers and Partisan divisions equipped with bottles with flammable liquid. These hunting expeditions in their activities of destruction are to be dressed to the greatest extent in German soldier’s uniforms and uniforms of the Waffen SS looted from the German Army.

This will ignite hatred toward all fascist occupiers and make the conscription of partisans from the outlying areas of fascist territories easier. It is important to have survivors who will tell about German atrocities. For this purpose, every regiment is to form hunter units of about 20-30 men strong with the task to detonate and incinerate the villages.

We have to select brave fighters for this action of destruction of settled areas. These men will be especially recommended to receive bravery awards when working in German uniforms behind enemy lines and destroying those settlement outposts. Among the population spread the rumour the Germans are burning the villages in order to punish the partisans.

The images distributed by the Soviets and their American and British allies depict graveside images of captives being shot in the back of the head. This method of execution was exclusively a Soviet CHEKA / NKVD method of mass killings. The forces of the Reich used conventional means to dispose of those marked for execution and did so within the constraints of international law.


Cui Bono (the legal term for ‘who benefits?): Again, logic suggests that only the Soviets would benefit from carrying out, photographing, filming and distributing images of these atrocities. The intention was to create an anti-Reich psychosis and encourage partisan recruitment. The strategy was also useful in providing the Soviets Western allies with propaganda that would assist their war against the Workers Reich. In other words, these crimes are solely and exclusively the responsibility not of Hitler’s Germany but of the Soviet Union, England and the United States. Source Russian Insider

  1. Thank you, dear Mike, for bringing these stories. This is an especially important one, exposing the evil tactics of the enemy. Burning down villages while switching identity — the depravity of that leaves me speechless.
    Wishing you and Nadia all the best in 2022! I feel a change in the wind… some good things are happening.

    • We wish you an inspiring and successful 2022 including the release of your brother Alfred, another in a long and depressing list of Prisoners of Truth. My instinct, which rarely lets me down agrees with your optimism. Yes, we face an uncertain future but not as uncertain as that faced by the bandits who have seized control. May their castles be built on sand and may they fear the future more than we do. They have good reason to fear their future. There will be no place for them to hide.

  2. I am concerned about a youtube channel called “the untold past” by a British author, historican or
    just a journalist! I told him to report about so many untold war crimes executed bv the allied victorers,
    wether US-British-Sovjet or France military personell, sorry I forgot Yugoslavian para-soldiers.
    Also I dont forget crimes against humanity after the date 5/8-1945 took place for example on the
    rhine river meadows, or at many, many places behind the later called iron courtain between the
    western allies and the Sovjet regime. Still waiting for an answer from him.
