Even considering the atrocities commited by Bolsheviks and Stalin, the U.S.S.R was morally superior since it was the attacked party. Hitler also committed an act of treason against one ally, the USSR, and a totally demential action since he attacked a nation he did not know the least bit. The information that Nazis had about USSR was planted, fabricated and totally false.

It was only posted to show the evolution of the eagle symbol in Germany. Somone intoned that the Nazi's adopted it do to their love of Roman symbols. I was merely illustrating that the use of an eagle as a national symbol had a long tradition in Germany. No, the double-headed eagle was not a Nazi symbol, but it was not as if the Nazi's needed to "reach" to find a source for their eagle.

Canada was complicate...They would not allow a boat carrying hundreds of Jews to land on Canadian shores..They turned then away- Back in the day our British culture were in part anti-Semites.. Same can be said of America- Where IBM assisted the Germans in the branding and tracking of Jews. I am sure there were many nations that did not help- and by not helping they may as well have been the perpetrators.

But that was not the case in Poland, Hungry, the Baltic states, Greece or Yugoslavia.
I came across this picture by accident today.It takes place during the round-up of Jews in Hungary; pay attention at the faces of the onlookers on the right side. As they say, picture is better than thousand words, heh. No wonder that 550,000 Jews out of 825,000 were destroyed in this country alone.

Yep the swiss acknowledged their even selling wealth of jewsih accounts held i ntheir banks not that long ago even after the war.they were amoung the real profiters of the war even takig i the gold teeth extracted form the dead. Mnay netural nations knowling cooperated with the nazi's. Just looking at the mioddle east we see the same nazi supporters today nthe radical muslim movements.
