Examples

  • During the war Stalin was desperate for a second front; afterward his propagandists bombarded the world with the claim that the Allied delay in opening one had forced the Russians to bear the brunt of the resistance against Hitler, which in turn enabled them to claim that the Red Army had defeated the Hitlerites, indeed would have done so on its own.

  • Stalin was certainly entitled to put the best possible face on the situation, and as his February 1942 public speech makes clear, he did: he had saved Moscow and Leningrad, thrown the Germans back, regained hundreds of square kilometers of sacred Russian land, the hated Hitlerites had suffered their first real defeats.

    Deathride

    Deathride

  • A mere seven decades after the promulgation of Laws for the Protection of German Blood and German Honor in 1935, which among other things forbade “the extramarital sexual intercourse between Jews and subjects of the state of Germany or related blood,” it was sobering to imagine what the Hitlerites might have accomplished had they cracked the genetic code.
