These outstanding people put the famous T-34 together and helped to win the war against Adolf Hitler and his fascism. As disabled people are under attack in the UK today (by the incumbant Tory Party), it is important to draw strength from past examples of disabled glory and triumph!
Today, the ordinary people of Britain are living in a democratic system that allows a small middle class to keep electing rightwing governments (including ‘New Labour’) that deliberately pursue rightwing policies that are hurtful toward the working class. This demonstrates that the fight against fascism is not only in the past (as the bourgeois would have us believe), but exists here and now in the present.
During the US-inspired Cold War, the West resurrected this Nazi German myth as a means to discredit Stalin and the Soviet achievement of defeating Germany Nazism during the Great Patriotic War (1941-45), which saw the deaths of between 27- 40 million Soviet men, women and children.
Although no publishing date is given for this hardback book of MI Kalinin’s speeches during the Nazi German invasion of the USSR – it states that it was printed in the UK under ‘war economy’ conditions and was probably published in 1944 or 1945.
The Soviet system did not commit any atrocities outside of the religiously orientated imagination of the bourgeoisie. Joseph Stalin was a great Soviet leader (see the work of Grover Furr). The working class must break away from the negative conditioning of the Bourgeois system and seek-out the real proletariat historical truth.
