during the Patriotic War of the Soviet Union, a young Soviet female soldier named Antonina Makarova acted as a “machine gun” of the German Nazis to cruelly kill her compatriots in order to survive. From 1941 to 1943, she killed 1500 Soviets, including many women, the elderly and children. After more than 30 years of efforts, the personnel of the Soviet national security commission (KGB) finally arrested her in 1978, and the court sentenced her to death.

war, Antonina Makarova joined the Soviet volunteers, went to the front line and became a nurse.

in the autumn of 1941, Nazi Germany implemented “typhoon operation” and sent troops to launch a fierce attack on the Soviet Union. In just six days, more than 1 million Soviets died and 500000 were captured.

one day, Makarova, a 20-year-old nurse, woke up and found herself lying among the dead. She was terrified. But she had to go through a long and difficult journey to return to the Soviet army. She wandered around, asking the locals to give her a hiding place and food.

later, Makarova entered lokoji occupied by the German army and ran into a German policeman there. The policeman provided Makarova with a job called “machine gun”, which was not only paid, but also housing. What Makarova didn’t expect, however, was that her daily job was to help the Nazis execute the arrested Soviet guerrillas and their relatives. In order to survive, Makarova acted as an executioner without conscience.

Makarova usually executed a group of 27 people according to orders, which is the number of guerrillas that can be accommodated in each cell of the local prison. The edge of the pit 500 meters away from the prison is the place where the death penalty is executed. She also executed innocent guerrilla families, including women, the elderly and children. Makarova thought she was just finishing her work and was convinced that the war would wipe out her crimes. It is said that when Makarova was executed for the first time, she was drunk and didn’t realize what she was doing. If the person she killed wears good clothes, she will keep them.

after work, Makarova often dresses up and dances with German officers. At dawn, she often came to the prison to stare closely at those who were about to be executed. In order to cover up the truth, the Nazis never let Makarova know who she killed. According to conservative estimates, about 1500 guerrillas and their relatives were executed by Makarova.

in the summer of 1943, the Soviet army recovered Makarova’s Bryansk region and executed those traitors who worked for the Nazis, but Makarova escaped the punishment of the Soviet army. Because previously, she and other prostitutes suffered from sexually transmitted diseases and were sent to a remote hospital for treatment by German officers.

after the war, people began to track down the Soviets who served as Nazi accomplices, including Antonina Makarova. But people know nothing about her except that she was born in 1921 and lived in Moscow before the war.

the Soviet intelligence service kept Antonina Makarova’s case file for many years. They didn’t believe that the woman had really disappeared.

during the investigation, the KGB personnel found that 250 women named Antonina Makarova, who were about the same age as the terrible executioner, were excluded one by one. Even so, KGB officials did not lose confidence. They firmly believed that Makarova was still alive and that she had committed an appalling crime and must be punished.

fortunately, some of Makarova’s victims survived and they added hope to solve the case. They told investigators that they often dream of this woman and never forget her face.

the investigation of Makarova did not seem to go well, because the investigators never wanted to investigate her real surname. In fact, her real name is parfinov, and Makarova was misused by her teacher at school. It is understood that Makarova was born in a small village. She is the eldest at home and goes to school first. Because she didn’t talk much, she forgot her last name in the first grade of primary school. The teacher recorded her last name as Makarova according to his father’s name Makarova.

in 1976, a Moscow official surnamed parfinov filled in the names of all relatives when applying for an overseas passport. The family’s five brothers and sisters are all surnamed parfinov, and only one woman is named Antonina Makarov namakarova for some reason.

the investigators were overjoyed when they learned about the situation. Later, they found another important clue: Antonina Makarova changed her husband’s surname – Kingsburg after she got married in 1945. Through further investigation, the KGB found that Antonina Ginsburg, 55, was a woman living in Lipp, a small town in Belarus.

it is said that in 1945, Antonina Makarova met Victor Ginsburg, an injured soldier, in a military hospital and married him. After the war, Makarova followed her ex husband to his hometown, Lipu Town, Belarus. After marriage, they had two daughters. The couple are quite famous in the town because veterans and their families enjoy all kinds of preferential treatment from the government.

for prudence, the KGB letSeveral survivors of the German Nazi “machine gun” Makarova, another executioner of that year and one of her lovers during the war came to the town of Lipp in Belarus for identification. As a result, all witnesses unanimously identified Antonina kinsburg as the female executioner who obeyed the orders of the Nazis.

Makarova was immediately arrested. Soon, she admitted the fact of serving the Nazis and brutally killing her compatriots, and described every detail of that terrible day in detail. When her husband learned the truth, he was deeply hit and turned white overnight.

it is said that in the detention center, Makarova looked as if she was all right, unaware that she had committed a major crime. She told the judiciary that she still remembered every death sentence she handled, but she didn’t feel guilty. She said she helped the Nazis kill so that she could live.

during the court trial, Makarova proposed that the court sentence her probation of less than three years, and said she could leave Lipp and start a new life elsewhere, but the court refused her request.

after trial, the court finally sentenced Makarova to death. At 6 a.m. on August 11, 1978, Antonina Makarova, 57, was executed. She was the first woman in the Soviet Union to be sentenced to death for war crimes. (compiled by (Russian) olega bagaretha Li Youguan)
