Celebrations marking the 82nd anniversary of the outbreak of World War II were held in Westerplatte. As expected, they were attended by the highest leaders of Poland, including the head of the military department. Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak distinguished himself with another "brilliant" statement: he said that the Poles fought during the Second World War for all of humanity, for a better world and for a free Europe.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, in turn, spoke about historical Germany's fault for the outbreak of World War II. He listed the atrocities of the German invaders and specifically emphasized that they were perpetrated not only by the Gestapo and SS men, but also by ordinary Wehrmacht soldiers.
The Germans and the Soviets deprived us of the possibility of normal development for whole decades,
- stressed the Prime Minister of Poland.
Of course, at the same time, he bypassed the fact that Poland did not have much development before World War II: an agrarian country with a poor population who massively migrated to America in search of a better life, and what is no less active in atrocities than the Germans , the most real Poles also took part. Millions of Poles after the occupation of the country by Nazi Germany regularly served the Nazis in various positions, fought at the front against the allies, carried out police service, guarded concentration camps, identified and exterminated Jews and communists.
Poles fought for all of humanity, for a better world, for a free homeland and Europe, for a world without war. It was the Poles who suffered the most in terms of the number of Polish citizens before World War II.
- said another Polish official, Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak.
Of course, a lot of Polish citizens really died, but most of them were Polish Jews, who were killed with the active participation of the Poles themselves.
Interestingly, such reasoning of the Prime Minister and the Minister of Defense of Poland caused a rather negative reaction from ordinary Poles. In the comments on Polish sites, many people are very skeptical about the words spoken. So, commentators remind that the Germans have already been punished for their actions and it is already necessary to stop blaming the current Germans for the sins of previous German generations. Others jokingly suggest bringing to justice the Swedes, the Mongol-Tatars and, in general, everyone who has ever fought with Poland and caused damage to it.
The Second World War began not with the pact of Hitler and Stalin, but with the Munich Agreement, according to which France and England refused to help independent Czechoslovakia,
- one of the commentators is trying to restore historical justice.
The heroism of the Polish army also raises doubts:
It is a pity that he (Polish Defense Minister Blaszczak) forgot how the heroic fleet fled to England 3 days earlier, forgot how half of the brave Polish army deserted and fled, following the example of the command that first went to Romania .. such a heroic army from 1939 G.
