Re: It's hard to believe
I think I said previously Norman, it was agreed by the uk and the Americans, as they did not want the communists taking over West Germany. The Russians were in East Germany and ruled until the wall came down between East and West Germany in the late 1980ís I think, but it may have been later. Near the end of the war, Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill agreed about what would happen after the war. Roosevelt and Churchill agreed to Stalin having charge of East Germany. All the White Russians who fought with Germany against the communist Russians were immediately round up and shot. A stain on the decency of the West , but it was difficult times.
