Today is a 82nd anniversary of beginning of World War II

Today is the 82nd anniversary of the outbreak of World War II. Not one major media outlet found is appropriate or important enough to mention that. But, it is appropriate for us, all Polers living around the World, because our World changed forever.

 "World War II was the result of an alliance of two totalitarian states: the German Reich and the Soviet Union." 

On September 1, 1939, at dawn, the crew of the Military Transit Depot at Westerplatte was attacked by artillery fire and air bombardment. Their heroic struggle - until September 7 - became a symbol of Polish resistance against German aggression.

The  Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki wrote today on his Facebook page today:

"September 1 in 1939 was on Friday.

Every other year, this date would be associated with the beginning of the school year in Poland. But 82 years ago, September 1 was the day that war broke out, later called World War.

In 1939, in many schools in Poland, instead of the first bell, alarm sirens, the roar of shells and bombs from cannons and German planes were heard. The war showed all its tragedy, the more so that their plan, Generalplan Ost, envisioned the extermination of 85% of Poles, while the rest were to be reduced to the role of slaves, working for the Germanic "superhumans".

Poles were the first victims of this German experiment in Europe. There is probably no family in Poland that would not lose a loved one as a result of the war. Today we look with concern at the phenomenon of relativism, where Germans become victims and not perpetrators of World War II.

We cannot forget one more truth. The beginning of World War II was the result of an alliance of two totalitarian states: the German Reich and the Soviet Union. The rapprochement of both totalitarianisms took place with the tacit approval of Western Europe, which, agreeing to make concessions to evil, passed judgment on itself."
