Mass grave at Nazis’ Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. These are the crimes Canada condemns. They were perpetrated by the Nazis, Mr. Trudeau, not the communists.

This Day. The Soviet-German Non-Aggression Pact, 1939

Official use of disinformation to falsify history and create a climate which will assist the same kind of Hitlerite and fascist forces to rise once again

Great Soviet victory against the Nazis at Stalingrad

On August 23, 1939, the Soviet Union signed what is now known as the Molotov-Ribbentrop Non-Aggression Pact with Germany which stipulated that Germany would not attack the Soviet Union and the Soviet Union would not attack Germany. The formal name for this agreement is the Nonaggression Pact between the USSR and Germany. It is often called the “Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact” or “Treaty” after the two foreign ministers who signed it. Ideological anti-communists call it the “Hitler-Stalin Pact”, in furtherance of the goal of associating the USSR to Nazi Germany and Stalin to Hitler.

On the night of February 13-14, 1945, the British Royal Air Force (RAF) bomber command carried out two devastating attacks on the German city of Dresden. At the time, Dresden’s pre-war population of 640,000 had been swelled by the presence of an estimated 100,000-200,000 refugees. Seven hundred and twenty-two aircraft dropped 1,478 tons of high explosives and 1,181 tons of incendiaries on the city. The resulting firestorm destroyed an area of 13 square miles, including the historic Altstadt Museum. Shortly after noon on February 14, a fleet of 316 U.S. bombers made a third attack, dropping a further 488 tons of high explosives and 294 tons of incendiaries. On February 15, two hundred and eleven U.S. bombers made a fourth attack, dropping 466 tons of high explosives. [Dresden was attacked again on March 2, this time by the Americans alone. Mustang fighter escorts machine-gunned fleeing civilians while the heavy B-17s achieved the singular distinction of sinking a hospital ship on the Elbe, filled with injured from the earlier raids.–ed.]
