|The Katyn Massacre|
Its crimes have however been made a taboo by the West and the complete story of Europe's most murderous regime has never been told.
Some quarter of a million Jews died in Nazi occupied Poland. On the 8 February 1940 the Soviet NKVD handed over to the Gestapo Jewish Communists who had fled to the USSR seeking sanctuary. Margarete Buber-Neuman, who survived the Soviet GULAG and the Nazi death camp at Ravensbruck, wrote that conditions in the Soviet GULAG were worse even than in the Nazi camps.
The BBC at the moment never misses an opportunity to mention that the Soviet army "liberated" Nazi concentration camps. What it does not tell you is that the Soviet Union did not destroy these camps, but continued to use them. Buchenwald and Sachsenhausen continued to operate under the Soviets up until as late as 1950!
The Soviets also carried out the first mass killing in WW2, the Katyn massacre. At Katyn, the Soviets murdered more than 20,000 allied prisoners of war. The Soviet officers who did the killing were decorated.
Many of the men who masterminded the Nazi holocaust have been brought to justice. I am actually proud that my parents' generation had the balls to hang the bastards. The hanging of Rudolf Hoss within the walls of Auschwitz by the Poles was particularly apposite.
However, those responsible on the Soviet side, who organised the mass murder of around four times the number of innocent people as did the Nazis, will never be brought to justice; the reason, we have granted them immunity from prosecution! So the victims and their relatives have no hope of justice this side of the grave.
To learn the full story, purchase and watch the Soviet Story (see link below) and then circulate this information to as many people as possible. "The Soviet Story" is the most powerful antidote yet to the sanitisation of the past. The film is gripping, audacious and uncompromising.
