October 23rd, 1941 - On this day in World War Two history, French Gen. Charles de Gaulle asks French resistance to stop murdering Nazis, in order to prevent reprisals. Also on this day, the Nazis massacre 24,000 Jews in Odessa in reprisal for the death of Gen. Glugoscianu the day before. By reprisals I am talking about the “punishment” for the actions taken against the Nazi occupation. If a German official was murdered or injured, the people suspected of carrying out the crime were heavily punished, usually via the death punishment. However, when it may have been 1 person or a small group of people who took part in the illegal act, the Germans reacted severely, killing many people from the region that they believed held the killer. What’s worse is what happened in Odessa. While the French resistance was mostly non-Jewish, and therefore the Germans gave them less severe reprisals, any assassination carried out by Jewish assailants would have MASSIVE consequences. There had been a bomb killing a German general in Odessa, Ukraine, during the Germans invasion of the USSR in 1941 (Operation Barbarossa), and Romanian/German authorities decided it was thus right to kill 24-30,000 Jews in the settlement in order to reach equity in the situation. This type of thing happened again and again, with many times more resistance fighters, partisans, Jews, etc being killed for the assassination/injuring of one man. A lot of the time the people the Germans killed didn’t have anything to do with the crime, and their deaths are what Charles de Gaulle wanted to stop, along with those of his resistance fighters. This is a good picture of a French resistance fighter who would have been engaging in the activities that Charles de Gaulle ordered to stop.
