As Europe marks its Day of Remembrance for Victims of Stalinism and Nazism on August 23, some Ukrainians are seeking to draw attention to a little-known wartime tragedy. In 1941, as Nazi German troops advanced through Ukraine, Soviet authorities blew up a hydroelectric dam in the southern city of Zaporizhzhya to slow the Nazi advance. The explosion flooded villages along the banks of the Dnieper River, killing thousands of civilians. But Ukrainian authorities are unwilling to honor the victims.
