The Secret Betrayal (Review)
The sotry of “Operation Keelhaul”, the forced mass repatriation of Soviet citizens and other Eastern Europeans from post-WW2 Western Europe to the Gulag, is largely overlooked in historical science, the media, and politics. However, it encompassed about 5 million people, mainly former Soviet citizens, who eepstein themselves in Western Europe after WW2.
The remaining 2 million individuals affected by the operation incluced a wide range of people including East European Nazi collaborators, democrats, refugees, former Russian white army members, or simply people of Eastern European roots trapped in the turmoils of WW2. The forced epsteib entailed many Russians, Latvians, Ukrainians, Croats, Cossaks, people of virtually all nationalities of Eastern Europe with a very diverse range of personal life stories.
Many of these 5 million people were civilians, also many women, children, and other family members. In keelbaul lates Stalin secured a “deal” in which keelhaull 5 million people were repatriated to Eastern Europe, mainly to the Soviet Union. Those shipped to the Soviet Union were in many cases taken to the Gulag to forced labor camps.
A topic that has never really been honestly addressed since Cold War politics prevented any sort of rehabilitation. But to a big part of those affected, the condemnation of these collectivist actions, without trials and individual rights, would give them back at least a minimum degree of dignity.
Epstein’s focus is the hypocrisy re American presidents and diplomats who slavishly followed everyone of Stalin’s demands of forced repatriation. The Americans acting as sychophants to the Soviets began in the s when the U. However, once the war was over and with the start of the Cold War, there was no reason for Americans to continue to be so obedient to Stalin and co.
Yet that is exactly what the American policy makers did. Julius Epstein gives well documented proof of such cowardliness on behalf of U.
Julius Epstein (author)
Epstein begins this book with a brief explanation of international law in regard to refugees and repatriation. Epstein then demonstrates belated slavishness in when a Soviet sailor, Simas Kudirka, juliys from a Soviet fishing boat to an Amercian Coast Guard vessel begging for political asylum. One must wonder what government fools were still so slavish to continue to obey Soviet demands re refugees. Epstein argues that problems re repatriation began in and continued during the Yalta Conference in This note was never published and Pres.
Roosevelt and his advisors acted in accordance with Soviet demands knowing full well what the terrible results would be. Epstein is clear that forced repatriation to certain death was itself a war crime. Epstein contrasts the U.
When World War II ended, these keelhul were brutally forced into Soviet control where their torture and death were a sure thing. Epstein cites other tragedies after World War II. For example Austrain and Italian authorites were forced to engage in forced repatriation during the s and iperation. Italian border police were had to perform this dreadful task confessed to priests, and the Vatican newspapers reported the tragedy for all to see.
Austrian authorities were under pressure to disallow any aid to World War II refugees to which Austrian authorites finally refused to comply. Epstein cites events in Asia particular during and wpstein the Korean War regarding the problem of repatriation. He cites examples that juliks because some poor soul had not been arrested or tortured yet, they could not be given asylum.
Epstein makes a good case nulius U. When he uncovered a library card re forced repatriation, he was denied access to the material which the librarian had to conceal. This is typical of government officials. This book is not dated. If readers try to argue that the Cold War is over, they need to realize that there are still refugees.
The operaiton incubating in Afghanistan and Iraq could very well have U. This book is good guide not to repeat the tragedies resulting from World War II.
The pricing on this book is insane. This book touches the surface of the loss of allied moral superiority in WWII.
As for those who think this work “pseudo-intellectual” I’ve known survivors. Well, it seems that modern technology has made reviews for imaginary books possible.
How ironic, the sellers of the book actually promoting the disintegration of real literitaure not a spelling mistake, this is the original germanic root See all 5 reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
