The Nazi, the Painter and the Forgotten Story of the SS Road

It is a journey through archives and interviews to discover the untold story of the building of a road in Ukraine and some of the people involved, The well known and unparalleled Nazi brutality is juxtaposed with the building of a road that suffered from an ongoing propensity to mistreat and murder the workforce. The road has a modern connection in the renewed project by Russia to build a bridge to Crimea that was originally started by the Nazis, which is how I found this book. Jeffrey rated it really liked it Jul 04, John Thomas rated it really liked it Nov 26, Andrea Samorini rated it really liked it Jan 02, Jan marked it as to-read Jun 17, In a curious collection of old films was discovered in the cupboard of a church at Cullompton in Devon.

The film in question was of SS men supervising their civilian and military prisoners in the building of a road in the occupied Soviet Union, and Bennett turned sleuth to discover the circumstances behind it. The film showed Jewish and Ukrainian labourers building a road named DGIV by the Nazis which was intended to connect the or so miles between Lviv and Donetsk across the breadth of Ukraine. Interestingly, the road was to serve a dual purpose.

The second function was rather more sinister. Bennett has performed a salient service in uncovering this tale. If there is a criticism to be aired, it is that the book feels as though it has been padded.

His decision to incorporate the process of research into his account, for example, will doubtless be of interest to some, but it is really not dramatic or enlightening enough to earn a place in the narrative as of right. Also, he is rather heavy-handed in his attempts to breathe life into Gieseke, posing too many unanswered and unanswerable questions about what his villain might have thought about what he did. Despite such quibbles, this is an engaging book, which should be welcomed for shedding light on a little-known chapter of the wider Holocaust.
