No comments from me - I would like to hear your opinion.
Nazi Germans planned an annihilation of the Polish Jews community. They succeeded. 3 million Polish Jews perished.
Germans also planned the extermination of the Polish elite and inteligentsia. They partly fulfilled their plans. 1.7 - 2 million ethnic Poles were killed by Germans. Their further plans involved transfering 20 million Poles to Siberia, so that occupied Poland could be settled by German colonists. Fortunately, that wasn`t realised.
Soviet Russians at first cooperated with Nazi Germans. They invaded Poland and conducted extermination of Polish elites together with Nazi murderers.
Suddenly Russians fell out with Germans and Poles gained an ally. Suspicious, savage, barbarian, but still an ally. So, it happened that Russians liberated Poland and again the Polish language could be used freely. Polish schools could open. Polish flags could wave in the air. The Polish anthem could be sung without persecution.
It is true that Soviet Russians raped Polish women from 5 to 70 years old. It is true they stole things from poor Poles, especially watches. They arrested patriotic Poles from the underground and sent them to Gulag camps. Yet, they never thought of getting rid of the Polish nation as a whole like Nazis did. Though occupied by Soviet armies, Poland was reborn after German occupation which meant death for the Polish nation.
The monuments to Polish Soviet brotherhood in arms are still present in Poland and they seem to remain there for a long time....
