SNIPPETS OF HISTORY: πŸ—“ On September 8 it was the β€˜ International Day in Memory of Victims of Faschism β€˜ and the day it began – September 1, 1939 – and the day it ended – September 2, 1945 #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Sept17: By tradition, it is observed on the second Sunday of September and is timed to two key dates of World War II: the day it began – September 1, 1939 – and the day it ended – September 2, 1945.

πŸ”Ή Over 55 million people became victims of the misanthropic ideology during the war unleashed by Hitler’s Germany: The Soviet Union suffered the biggest losses – about 27 million people: The Soviet people made a decisive contribution to the rout of the axis powers and liberated Europe from the Nazi plague in cooperation with the allies.

πŸ”Ή In the past few years, a number of European countries have been trying to rewrite history and belittle or distort the Soviet Union’s role in WWII: They cynically equate the Nazi occupation with the Red Army’s liberating mission: Nazi accomplices are being glorified in the process: Monuments are built in their honour and streets are given their names, whereas monuments to Soviet liberators and victims of Nazi atrocities are desecrated.

πŸ”Ή Such political allegations: As well as attempts to equate victims with executors and liberators with aggressors and call into doubt the decisions of the Nuremberg trials, are unacceptable and ridicule the memory of millions of people on all continents who perished fighting against fascism and Nazism.
