    1) i will write about AK in my other posts
    2) Bielski brothers contributed nothing except killings and robberies of Belarusian peasants , and they were not part of NKVD squads ("soviet Belarusian partisans") , they were family (Jewish)- squad. which has had very complicated relation with Moscow and NKVD red squads. this what they did very often in order to prove locality to commie case .

    "Every village has its hidden, or in some cases repressed, history — stories which one would never be aware of when merely passing through. In Drazhna’s case one such story is the April 14, 1943 murder of 25 civilians, mainly women and children, by a large group of Soviet partisans after their attack on a fortified German-occupation police post failed. Even today the authorities will not tolerate a cross in memory of those whom the partisans murdered."

    That makes Poland a victim and a collaborator rather than "first to fight" doesn't it?

    Poland's resistance was laughable. The only question was which conqueror the Poles would embrace first, Germany or the Soviet Union.

    World War II began September 1, 1939. Period

    On August 31, 1939, Germany staged a fake attack on one of their radio stations with Nazi's wearing Polish uniforms. The ruse worked.

    Are you saying that it was the fault of Poland that they were a pushover?

    The Allies refused to take action when WW-II could have been avoided. The Treaty of Versailles crippled Germany and created considerable resentment among the German people which led to the rise of Hitler. The Treaty limited Germany to six naval ships, 100,000 soldiers, no airforce or armored vehicles.

    Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany's loss of WW-I and secretly started to build an test newer aircraft at a secret site. They also started building better tanks and submarines. So long as no one stopped him, he just kept growing their war machine. Germany threatens Czechoslovakia and pressures Austria into an alliance. Hitler justified the move by saying that since most of the people spoke German, those countries rightfully should be part of Germany. France and several minor countries declared war on Germany but, in reality, they did nothing. This inaction simply contributed to the confidence of Hitler that he had to begin WW-II.

    President Donald Trump would have put a stop to the illegal military expansion of Adolph Hitler and who knows, Japan may have looked at that and though Oh Shucks, that guy means business saving tens of millions of lives and trillions of dollars in reconstruction.

    Poland still did fight Nazis, even if a victim.

    Nazi Germany had approx 3 X more Germans in it's borders in 1939, then Poland had Poles in 1939.

    Of course Nazis ran to even much larger Soviets for aid.

    Not really surprising the results.

    Movie's are largely fantasy, even ones based on some reality.

    As for Schindler's List depicting Polish speaking guards in the Nazi camps, almost all guards were German, and most non-Germans weren't Poles, but rather Ukrainians, or Latvians.

    This is just one of numerous reasons why Poles shouldn't care for Jews.

    Jewish Spielberg has falsified history in his Schindler's list.
