    That's just sick. Anti-Semitism was rampant around the World. I'm not Jewish but I grieve for the persecution they have suffered over the centuries.

    And yet today, you're conspiring with the Nazis.

    How ironic.

    Polish were the first victims of Auschwitz, not Jews.

    Soviets were hardly better for Poland than Nazis, although none the less it was slightly better, not because Communism is superior over Fascism, but because of Generalplan Ost.

    Soviets killed far more Russians, than Poles.

    But, some Russians, mostly the Dupek support Soviets, none the less.

    Soviets killed probably 300 thousand ethnic Poles in Katyn Massacre, the Polish Operation of the NKVD, the Holodomor, and forced deportations of Poles.

    Meanwhile, Soviets killed about 10 - 15 million Russians in just the first 3 years, in the Russian Civil War + Volga Famine.

    Sure, like in the Battle of Komarow 1920, when 1,700 Poles beat 17,500 Soviet forces, including the best Soviet division at the time, the Soviet 1st Cavalry Division.

    It is not true.
    In fact, 100 Poles defeated 1,000,000,000 Russians.

    The Poles were victims, Hungary was a victim, Slovokia was a victim, the Jews were victims and nobody did much until France became a victim of the Hun for the second time in a quarter of a century. Where the hell was the FDR administration while Europe was falling apart? The book "In the Garden of the Beasts" chronicles the U.S. ambassador to Berlin's account of the FDR administration's lack of interest in Hitler's rise to power in the 30's.
