The NKVD operation was led by Bogdan Kobulov, one of Beria's nastiest henchmen. After reporting to Beria the deportation was complete he was told a large number were still in their villages around the Azov Sea. Fearing Beria's wrath, he panicked and told his men that... 🧵
if any were left alive within two hours 'heads will roll'. The remaining Tartars, men women and children, were loaded onto a barge which was then towed to the deepest part of the Azov Sea and sunk. Those that didn't drown and tried to swim were machine gunned. Lunar Sonata by Crimean Tatar artist, Rustem Eminov, born in
Kobulov, who had also had a hand in the #Katyn murders, eventually got what he deserved. When, after Stalin's death, Beria fell and was shot as a British spy (Moscow lies go way back), Korbulov got his '9 grams' too. Never was a bullet in the back of the head more deserved.

L'insurrection de Varsovie : Staline et Machiavel
Le 1er août 1944, alors que l'Armée rouge est entrée en Pologne depuis le début de l'année,

#russia #urss #wwii #Poland #katyn #Stalin #massacre #war #invasion #treaty #Nazi
l'Armia Krajowa, l'Armée polonaise de l'intérieur, se soulève dans le but de libérer Varsovie.
Plusieurs raisons à cela.
D'une part, le contexte est plus favorable qu'il ne l'a jamais été depuis le début de la guerre : l'Allemagne est acculée sur tous les fronts.
En effet, à l'Est, depuis les victoires de Stalingrad et de Koursk, l'Armée rouge a ravi l'initiative à la Wehrmacht qu'elle refoule vers l'Ouest à grands coups boutoirs.

🧵Nie byłoby masowej eksterminacji polskiej inteligencji w Katyniu i w ramach Aktion AB (Außerordentliche Befriegungsaktion), gdyby od września 1939 Sowieci i Niemcy nie współpracowali ściśle ze sobą w ramach konferencji GESTAPO i NKWD w Zakopanem i Krakowie na wiosnę 1940 r. 1/
Tadeusz Komorowski „Bór”, Komendant Obszaru Kraków ZWZ, wspominał: „W marcu 1940 roku sztab mój otrzymał wiadomość, że do Krakowa przybyła specjalna komisja NKWD, aby uzgodnić z Gestapo wspólne działanie przeciwko polskiemu ruchowi podziemnemu. NKWD już sobie z tego zdawało 2/
sprawę, że 🇵🇱 opór zbrojny jest scentralizowany i że działa w całej 🇵🇱 pod dowództwem jednego sztabu głównego. Narady w Krakowie trwały kilka tygodni. Dostarczano mi nawet czasem sprawozdań z tych zebrań, nazwiska uczestników i ich adresy. Metody zwalczania naszego ruchu 3/

@THAT_Jane @hughp1970 @DNSandilands @ProjectReality8 @lawlecturer @darrengrimes_ Why?

So you're saying if the jury had found the mob's leaders guilty the mob would have congratulated them for sticking to the law rather than acquitting them?

Taken it stoically?!

None of the mob would possibly have felt animosity against the jury for jailing their leaders?!?
@THAT_Jane @hughp1970 @DNSandilands @ProjectReality8 @lawlecturer @darrengrimes_ When are the rioters going to tear down all the statues to slavers

In Africa

Of African slavers

BLACK African slavers

Who were enslaving each other LONG before Whitey returned to Africa

And sold the slaves to the White slavers

And resisted Whites when tried to stop slavery?
@THAT_Jane @hughp1970 @DNSandilands @ProjectReality8 @lawlecturer @darrengrimes_ Slavery was the norm in those days

Africans enslaved each other long before Whitey returned to Africa

Africans sold the slaves to Whitey (previously they'd butchered most of the male captives!)

But your "slaver" used his wealth to do good works in UK

Unlike AFRICAN slavers!

During the trial of the final #Nazi defendant at Nuremberg, Hans Fritzsche, the #Soviet prosecutor brought up Fritzsche's radio broadcast justifying the attack on Poland. Fritzsche responded: it had been "a matter of great satisfaction" that the Soviet press said the same thing.
#pt: from Francine Hirsch's wonderful book, "Soviet Judgment at Nuremberg" (2020), pp. 322-23.
Hans Fritzsche was only on trial at Nuremberg in the first place because the Soviets demanded it as a substitute for Goebbels. Everyone understood that Fritzsche just did not measure up in terms of responsibility to the other Nazis being tried.

1/ I’d like to tell you an #WW2 story close to my family’s heart. That of an incredible bear that was adopted by Polish soldiers in the Middle East and accompanied them during the war through Italy.
His name was Wojtek.

2/Animals played an important role in #WW2. Some were involved actively in the war effort (mules, pigeons) others were pets of soldiers (dogs, monkeys, birds) who boosted morale and often became mascots. #Wojtek was both. But unusually – he was a bear.

3/ 18 y/o Pole Irena Bokiewicz 1st came across this adorable bear cub in Hamadan,#Iran and bought him off some boys for some chocolate. In Aug 1942 he was introduced to the unit that became the 22nd Artillery Supply Company. Sgt Piotr Prendyś was appointed his principal guardian ImageImage
