Hans Koch – soldier, pastor, spy, and professor of history and theology – stands as a representative of a positive narrative strand in the history of German-Ukrainian relations. Yet, despite his reputation as a Ukrainophile, Koch was also a dedicated and active National Socialist. How did he resolve this contradiction during the Second World War? Using neglected sources and the latest academic literature, this book aims to place Koch in the greater context of the events he experienced between 1939 and 1945.
