I have pictures of Warsaw Uprising taken by Sylwester Braun, Zygmunt Walkowski, and Eugeniusza Lokajski
But history will still judge both Roosevelt and Churchill for turning their backs on their staunch Polish allies in the most disgusting manner. For this they can be solely held responsible for. We need look no further than their actions – or rather lack of action - during the Moscow show trial in 1945 of the 16 political leaders of free Poland, tricked with the aid of the Allies into revealing their identities. Innocent men held in complete violation of international law. Polish heroes falsely accused, tortured, imprisoned, and in several cases likely murdered.
Also, it made a mockery of the lofty principles both Churchill and Roosevelt penned in their Atlantic Charter of 1941. How did Poland fare here?:
- Territorial adjustments must be in accord with the wishes of the peoples concerned.
- All peoples had a right to self determination
- Freedom from want and fear
But having said that, my father once put it to me this way, which has always stuck with me: the Germans were bent on eradicating the Polish nation and culture, while the Russians only Polish independence. We were lucky to have the lesser of the two evils.
“their actions – or rather lack of action” I can add that Franc and England by rather lack of action has encourage Russians in attacking Poland in September 17 1939.
Indeed the Western Allies were scared of the Soviets thats why they tried not to mention them nor get them angry.Notice how Britain was sending telegrams to Hitler telling him to get his troops out of Poland,While when the Soviets attacked no telegrams were sent to Stalin telling him to get his troops out of Poland.If the Soviets didnt attack I think Britain and France would acually attack instead of wait.
I seen this picture on a youtube video so I did print screen and got a picture of it.Can anyone tell what medals are being awarded here?The soldiers are from the NSZ.Can anyone edit out the 2 effects on the pictures?It ruins the look.
Are you sure this is NSZ? Looks to be a cross, but I can’t make out exactly which one. But by virtue of a general doing the awarding I would expect either the Virtuti Militari or Cross of Valour.
Best I can do for you. You’re asking too much as far as editing . . .
The picture was in a video about the NSZ but I cant confirm if it really is.But werent Cross`s of valor and Virtuti Militari`s awarded during a war or shortly after?There all wearing wz.36 tunics so the only war could of been in 1939 but as far as I know none were awarded during the campaign.
Yeah I guess editing was to much
