During the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, Soviet Secret Police murdered thousands of (mostly) Ukrainian political prisoners in several prisons in Lviv before fleeing the city. Because a high percentage of the Soviet Secret Police were Jewish, the Nazis used the incident to stoke hatred towards the Jews in the Ukrainian populace. The Nazis emptied the prisons and laid out the bodies for the populace to see, then encouraged the Ukrainians to seek revenge. On July 16, an estimated 7,000 Jews were stripped, beaten and murdered in Lviv. Nazi photographers and cameramen captured images of this horrific incident.
