  1. You still dont understand Poland or Latvia – do you?. Its not about losing memory about liberators – it is all about remembering what happened after WW2 – forced soviet occupation…

  2. If I remember well the so-called “occupiers” were well received by the people and so-called “liberators” not.

  5. Impressive. And now all these European cities which cost so many million lives to defend and to conquer, belong to savage mobs and hordes from Asia and Africa, who took them over in the course of just several years, without a single shot.
