User Reviews

A necessary reminder of the way the Poles were treated by the Germans, Russians and British
2 January 2020 | by banjofred-414-79873See all my reviews

We had a treaty with Poland, we went to war due to that treaty. We then deserted them due to the agreement with Stalin.

We could at least have supplied some arms ammunition and a little support. The Russians waited outside Warsaw until the Germans killed the poles, then subjected them to decades of subjugation. I visited Gdansk once, the lady on the cheap card table inside the Cathedral collecting small donations for candles said what the germans didn't take, the Russians took. The cathedral was bare. The reviewer here says why pour salt on old wounds. Never Forgive, Never Forget !! Let others forgive, we must constantly remind the Germans of their actions - not "Nazis" but Germans

The Japanese rewrote history despite the US ruling presence. Dont let Europe forget the Germans evil acts.

an excellent film.
