Armia Krajowa and Other Western Freedom Fighters.
The Polish people hold fast to their traditions, are strongly nationalistic and love their country and their freedom, but they are not racists, fascists or totalitarians. Having fought against and suffered perhaps more than any other country in Europe, the scourge of both Nazi and Marxist totalitarian regimes, in the end they emerged victorious, which sadly cost them many millions of lives. (https://www.iwp.edu/events/commemorations-of-polands-anti-nazi-and-anti-communist-insurgents/).
As part of the Nazi plan to destroy Poland and enforce totalitarian rule, they looted and destroyed libraries, museums, scientific institutes and laboratories as well as national monuments and historic treasures. They closed down universities and high schools, and engaged in the systematic murder of Polish scholars, teachers and priests. Many were Jews and many more were non-Jews. Under the Nazis, Jews and Catholic Poles were sent to the camps where medical experiments were done. Sulphanilamide experiments were conducted on Polish Catholic priests in Dachau. More than 300 Polish priests died as a result of experiments or torture.
The Armia Krajowa who opposed both the Nazis and the Marxists
The Nazi genocide claimed the lives of 1.7 to 2 million Polish Jews and 1.8 to 3.05 million Catholic Poles. After the Nazi defeat, in January 1945, the pro-Soviet government installed in Poland by the advancing Red Army declared as "illegal" the Polish anti-Nazi resistance movement, principally the Home Army (the Armia Krajowa) and ordered its surviving members to come out into the open while guaranteeing them freedom and safety. And when they did, the Red Army tortured, Imprisoned and murdered most along with, in many cases, their entire families.
And so, the resistance movement in Poland became not only anti-Nazi but anti-Marxist and up to 1953, fought an armed struggle against the Soviet takeover of Poland at the end of World War II.
The Armia Krajowa conducted an array of military attacks launched against Communist prisons, state security offices and concentration camps set up across the country by the Marxist authorities. The men and women of the Polish resistance were heroes and defenders of liberty and freedom, who refused to bow to both Nazi and Marxist totalitarians.
Why did the Red Army go after the anti-Nazi resistance fighters? Because it was in the best interests of the Nazis and Marxists to do so. Simply because (and this is something your Marxist professors won't tell you) of the Nazi-Soviet alliance which lasted from August 23, 1939 to 1941. The Soviet invasion of Poland was a military operation by the Soviet Union without a formal declaration of war. On 17 September 1939, the Soviet Union invaded Poland from the east, sixteen days after Germany invaded Poland from the west. On September 29, 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union pursuant to their agreement, agree to a divided control of occupied Poland roughly along the Bug River—the Germans taking everything west, the Soviets taking everything east. Under such arrangements the Armia Krajowa would have been a problem for both sides.
Because the Polish people paid such a high price for their freedom, they are not so easily swayed these days by the Marxist controlled European Union ( named after the Soviet "Union") who want to destroy the cultures of Europe and submit the European peoples to totalitarian rule, as fodder for mega-corporations and the proposed European Central Committee to exploit as they see fit.
The Left today, because they are such chronic liars, accuse most of those who fought and defeated the Nazis, the Marxists and the Italian and Japanese Fascists during WW2, of being racists, fascists and Nazis themselves along with their descendants. These disgusting accusations spit on the graves and memories of so many brave men and women who gave their lives for freedom, who were not only from Europe and America but Australia; who fought and died on the beaches or Normandy and in other theatres of war in Europe and elsewhere, AGAINST the rise of totalitarianism and fascism.
In Australia's case, also in the Jungles of New Guinea where many engaged in hand-to-hand combat. Others wasted away and died in prison camps. But like their Polish brothers and sisters, although they lost many battles, in the end, won the war.
" They were all servants of capitalism and the ruling class" the Left say, to justify their disgusting accusations, when in fact it is they who are today manipulated and controlled by wealthy apparatchiks, entrepreneurs, media moguls, industrialists and multinational-corporations, all of which is well documented. The biggest lapdogs of corporate capitalism in the world today, without a doubt - are the Left!
By many measures, corporations are more central players in global affairs than nations. We call them multinational but they are more accurately understood as post-national, transnational or even anti-national. For they abjure the very idea of nations or any other parochialism that limits them in time or space. (Benjamin Barber. Jihad vs McWorld. July 30, 1996).
