My grandfather was in 37th or 38th Battalion, I don't think it's pleasant for me to read that he participated in killing civilians. DJ Sturm (talk) 13:37, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

How exactly is that relevant? However, only the 36th Police Battalion participated in killing civilians, 37th and 38th did not, as far as I know. This article is a mess by sock of a permbanned user and needs a complete rewrite as it is. -- Sander Säde 13:53, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Estonian Wikipedia article et:36. Kaitse Rindepataljon says that only proof about war crimes of 36th are NKVD protocols from 1950s and it's not objective source. I think it's very wrong that Auxiliary Police's major engagements were Holocaust in Estonia, Belarus, Poland and Russia. Fighting against partisans is not a crime, Soviet partisans were usually the ones to commit war crimes (according to memories of Estonian fighters from Police Battalions and Estonian Legion). Estonian historians have rejected all Soviet claims about 286th and 288th. DJ Sturm (talk) 18:55, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
