Many of the victims were executed with their hands tied behind their backs, others while receiving treatment in the camps medical centre.
Retired U.S. Army Col. Wes Martin, an adjunct faculty member in the criminal justice program at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, testified via live remote this week before the Canadian House of Commons’ Subcommittee on International Human Rights.
