it's "Soviet propaganda" on the basis that a contemporary Russian newspaper also reported it.
The only "interesting links" (your term) which you provided were some conspiracy blog and a low-circulation Jewish tabloid. And the tabloid's article was written by the same guy pushing his book on the subject. So basically it's just an advert.
And this book appears to be based on an early 20th century English language newspaper article quoting Radio Moscow which was quoting Pravda.
So which "contemporary" Russian newspaper are you referring to? Izvestia?
Yeah, here is an old, funny and very accurate saying the Russians had about Pravda and Izvestia:"v Pravde net izvestiy, v Izvestiyakh net pravdy" (In the Truth there is no news, and in the News there is no truth).
Anyway, don't bother listing your "contemporary" Russian newspaper because everyone in Poland knows that the Russian media has always been hostile towards Poland and seeing them regurgitating their own bile is fully expected no matter what era it is.
I wonder if he thinks the Conservative MPs who raised it in the House of Commons were "Soviet propaganda" too
Oh, you mean the same House of Commons (your representatives of course) which held long debates and then went ahead and voted in favor of invading Iraq based on a pack of lies. Yes, yes, and how did that decision turn out for everyone? LOL! Okay then, do feel free to keep fooling yourself that the House must have been right too about the propaganda Pravda was intentionally feeding them and the West back in the day.
General Sikorski himself was spouting "Soviet propaganda" when he admitted that they were concentration camps.
Lies and no surprise then that you haven't (or rather can't) provide any source showing direct written quotes from him stating so.
The book, by the way is worth reading.
How much of a discount did you get for promoting it on PF?
Thankfully, we at least have a credible approach to history that involves reporting the facts and not brushing things aside simply because it doesn't comply with the approved canon.
Yeah, let's take a direct quote then from the lies propagated by Pravda back in 1945 regarding this "Hell Camp":"The Polish Fascist concentration camp system, notorious before the Germans started Buchenwald and other camps, was preserved when the Poles fled from Poland."
Well, that doesn't sound very scholarly now does it? But according to you this utter BS is still "reporting the facts" whether it is quoted from Pravda or repeated decades later by useful idiots in the media suffering from acute and incurable Polonophobia.
So now let's take a look at undisputed facts and in particular what Pravda and others like yourself have deliberately and conveniently brushed aside because it doesn't fit your classical and neo-bolshevik narrative.
The Soviet GULAG system had its origins in the early 1900's and ran for most of the 20th century. It unjustly imprisoned tens of millions of people and savagely worked millions of innocent people among them literally to death!
One should note very well that when this canard from Pravda was propagated in 1945 the Soviets had already been in full swing repressing Polish citizens; in particular from 1939 - 1946.
The Soviets unlawfully imprisoned hundreds of thousands of Poles, murdered thousands more, and on top of this deported millions of Poles all across the USSR many of whom died along the way and countless others who would never see Poland again.
But you don't care about these revolting Soviet atrocities done on an industrial scale, these systematic and unforgivable Soviet crimes against humanity.
It's upsetting to think that you claim to work around Polish children.
