Baltic history lessons

24
In recent years, there has been a clear tendency for a number of Western countries to rewrite stories World War II events. Poland was especially successful in this. Separate republics of the former USSR follow the same path: the Baltic states, Ukraine, etc.




Baltic schoolchildren are taught to perceive the events of 1940 of the year not as a union with the Soviet Union, with the consent of the then leaders of the republics and approval by the majority of local residents, but as "the invasion of the USSR", "occupation", "aggressive policy of the Stalinist empire."

Of course, the Baltic schoolchildren will not be shown videos showing how the same Latvians met the Red Army in June of the 1940, and will not tell how tens of thousands of Latvian volunteers joined the army of the Soviet Union to smash the Nazis and their accomplices together .

If the truth about the war, about the voluntary entry of the Baltic States into the Soviet Union, appears in the Baltic documentary, in the Baltic media and history books, this will shake the anti-Russian campaign launched by the West and in which countries such as Latvia or Ukraine become instruments achieving the goals of Western intelligence services to break the built ties.

The TV channel “History” presents a film called “Unlearned lessons. Baltic States ":

    Of course, the Baltic schoolchildren will not be shown videos that demonstrate how the same Latvians met the Red Army in June 1940,
    And if they show it, they will say that behind the scenes there were NKVD officers with machine guns and immediately shot those who did not actively greet the Red Army on the spot.

      Someone probably sincerely welcomed, someone was sharply against, someone did not care. Everything is as always and everywhere, the Baltic states are no exception. Thanks to the collapse of the Russian Empire and then the USSR, they gained independence, but they didn’t have the mind to preserve industry, and nonsense to start quarreling with a neighbor - Russia. Now reaping the benefits of their shortsighted policies

      In fairness, these are propaganda films .... of those years ...... you can also show films, I’m sorry about how the Germans met the bread and salt with the population of the USSR .... By the way .... how did the Balts meet the Germans? An incident not in the SS recorded ran massively?

        Well, the Jews rushed to destroy very actively. as for mass, here it is not quantity that matters, but the policy of distortion / glossing over, etc. of those events in the right direction. for example, replace the voluntariness of joining a waffen-ss with coercion, or call it a response to the repressions of Stalin, call a concentration camp a labor camp, and replace tens of thousands of martyrs with hundreds of deaths from illnesses.

    Baltic tribes always lived under the masters. Only the owners were different. But no one ever took them seriously, and now too.

      Baltic tribes ..
      Now I’m watching they write that the term “Baltic Sea” was coined in 1845 .... So the question is: when, then, did these "Baltic tribes" appear and how old are they? Yes, by the way, this term itself is taken from a fairly new dialect of the Latin language and, as usual, is derived from the Russian root word, that is, whatever the term, it turns out to be occupational!

    “Of course, the Baltic schoolchildren will not be shown videos showing how the same Latvians met the Red Army in June 1940,”

    And I saw a video of how Ukrainians met German troops. So what? This is not an indicator.

    "they will not talk about how tens of thousands of Latvian volunteers joined the ranks of the Soviet Union army,"

    And how many of them joined the German army and parts of the SS?
    PS As for the "tens of thousands", you must agree that you got excited. wink

      about 30 thousand in two divisions of waffen ss, plus police and auxiliary battalions. and the total number of those who served under one hundred thousand can be searched more precisely.

    There is a very good film directed by Bergman "Midsummer's Night" documentary film, pre-war 1940. A film about the entry of a limited contingent of Soviet troops into the Baltic States and the entry of the Baltic States into the USSR. A very true film full of many facts that are still unknown to the viewer. One fact is that when Soviet troops enter Estonia, the Estonian soldier opens the barrier, and all the border guards salute. I downloaded it 12 years ago, but now I cannot find it in the peer-to-peer system.

    But will the channel not tell a story about the following simple fact .... 1939 ..... there is a second world war .. Germany took Paris ..... on this occasion (5 days before the surrender of France) Molotov summoned the fascist ambassador Germany, to officially express his admiration for the brilliant victories of the German Sun.

      Molotov summoned the ambassador of Nazi Germany to officially express his admiration for the brilliant victories of the German Armed Forces.

      The USSR at that time was neither in a state of war with Germany, nor in alliance with France. And not long before this event, he proposed to defend Czechoslovakia with Germany by his armed forces, if the passage of the Red Army through Poland was ensured. So there is nothing to be ashamed of.
      And yes. Germany defeated France precisely "brilliantly". This is if without emotion.

        How do you like this passage? Does the channel tell a story about this?
        On November 1, 1939, the Pravda newspaper publishes V.M. Molotov at a meeting of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR:

        Recently, the ruling circles of England and France have been trying to portray themselves as fighters for the democratic rights of peoples against Hitlerism, and the British government has declared that for it the goal of the war against Germany is nothing less than "the destruction of Hitlerism" ...
        But this kind of war has no justification for itself. The ideology of Hitlerism, like any other ideological system, can be recognized or denied - this is a matter of political views. But any person will understand that ideology cannot be destroyed by force, you cannot end a war with it. Therefore, it is not only senseless, but also criminal to wage such a war as the war for the "destruction of Hitlerism", covered with a false flag of the struggle for "democracy" ...

          Denazification was carried out after the war, if my memory serves me ... Although maybe I did not understand you and do you really believe in the war in order to bring someone "human rights" and "democratic values"?

            Who are you threshing under? OUR story tells that after the beginning of the Second World War, we supplied the Nazis with a lot, a lot of things ... and from them we received a lot? The war began in 39 ... what did our press write? All the films of the HISTORIA channel are propaganda ... because everywhere they talk about one thing, but not a word about the other ... THIS is not denied, it is impossible to deny ... just "silence" ... THIS is not a story ...

              You did not answer the question and immediately asked another, it is at least not polite.

              Again. The USSR at that time was not one of the parties to the conflict and had no union obligations to the parties to the conflict. We were "in our own right."

                  true, there is already the familiar double standard. the comrade himself quite rightly calls for a comprehensive coverage of historical events, and at the same time, voluntarily or involuntarily, makes / puts an emphasis on one point of view

    No one has ever committed genocide among the Balts as "democracy". Whatever one may say, but the economy and the population of the Baltic republics under the "occupation" of the USSR were heading up the hill, while after gaining "independence", in 25 years of "freedom" they found the collapse of industry and together lost a third of their population. Another 25 years of such freedom is fraught with the fact that these peoples will be classified as small (endangered). And all because they are concerned only with the fact that as much as possible to spit on their past, but as they say - "If you spit in your past, then this past will respond with a volley of cannons."

    The Baltic states have had 20 years to become complete bankrupt, as in the last century, there and in the present.

      there is no bankruptcy yet, but prices are steadily rising towards pan-European, salaries / incomes are much slower, the top is booming.

    Informational opposition must not be overlooked. You can drown in lies. The truth keeps afloat. For all the leisurely, gnarly information, tweaked for the sake of (or someone else's) information, you need a counterargument and obligatory help in obtaining knowledge of the truth (better a document). Crazy from constant Russophobia, lies, omission and deliberate distortion of facts - the youth in every failed country / state will have everything said in their homeland (after all, the homeland ... and the government ... you need to believe ...) perceive the information provided for " face down ", and not critically, meaningfully approach the statements of Russophobic fanatics and collaborators, including those who have burst into power. It seems that the countries are small and the population is not all sick in the head, but the "work", in general, these activists are systematically and actively (they work off the money in front of the customers, we all know them) and, sometimes, they achieve their goals - they break the not strong the brain is forced to do obscene things, to please themselves and not only. And in due time - this is one people - Soviet! And the tasks were solved by common and the aspirations were common. Here you have a "showcase of socialism", created!
