Russophobia Rewriting History

[list]

russofobic propaganda.jpg

I have been reading a lot about the Russophobic and Orwellian revisionism of WWII history in dystopian Europe, especially in Poland, in Ukraine and in the Baltics (Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia).

I have nothing to add to articles written by people far more well-informed about the subject than I do, so I will just suggest a list of articles I read. Many might not be aware of the fact, but even Polish top officials now dare to blame Russia for WWII (including Polish prime-minister).

In Europe, dementia, russophobia, revisionism, nazism, fascism, and many other socio-cultural diseases are on the rise, promising (once again) a dark future for the continent. Only rationalism and honesty applied to objective learning of our history can stop this madness. I believe it is too late, but I really hope I am wrong.

Before the articles, I would like to suggest (for those who never watched) two superb and objective old documentary series, produced in the 1970s, when objectivity was still allowed in mainstream European media:

The World at War | 1973-76 | 26 episodes 

 

 

The Unknown War | 1978 | 20 episodes
