In 1945, British troops in Germany collaborated with the Red Army in rounding up civilians and afterwards machine-gunning men, women and children in groups. Many British soldiers testified that they heard the rattle of machine-guns nearby just a few moments after the prisoners were handed over to units of the Red Army.
‘We thought that machine-gunning must be the finish of them. We thought they were just taken back there and slaughtered. That was our general view.’
Soldiers described how the Red Army’s killing squads afterwards provided British Army troops with breakfast. ‘The meal was a jolly occasion, with much talk of allied unity and many toasts were drunk in neat Vodka.’
This was just one set of thousands of incidents in which England’s armies assisted the Red Army to ethnically cleanse 5,115,709 Eastern Europeans during populations’ transfers under the Yalta Agreement of February 1945.
The top signature on the British and American sponsored holocaust was that of unelected British premier Winston Spencer Churchill. His signature was followed by that of US President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The last signature on this hellish document is that of Josef Stalin, the most notorious mass killer in history.
Of the on-going removal of millions of people collected from a score or more nations, one hapless ethnic group was that of the Cossack. Once a mighty ethno-race The Cossack peoples have since been reduced to that of scattered tribes of Native Americans.
REPORT: CAPTIVE NATIONS COMMITTEE, INC. “In the Communist newspaper Pravda of September 7, 1945, (serial number 214 9935) Russian General Golekov thanked his Western allies for returning the many men, women and children who had fled their Russian occupied homelands (previously independent nations). The return of these human beings to what was known as The Red Hell was carried out in the course of an atrocity called ‘Operation Keelhaul.’
‘In a period of about three months, May 25 to September 7, 1945, a total of 2,229,552 people from Yalta surrendered nations were delivered to the Red Army. England took the lead in the deportation of millions of civilians until 1947. By then, 5,115,709 Europeans, mostly civilians had been rounded up by the Allies and sent to the Soviet Union and to certain death. ~ Cossack National Liberation Movement, Major General Nicholas G. Nazerenko, Retired: National President. Blauvelt, New York. The U.S.
The heart of Michael Walsh, author of Witness to History and Megacaust, was constantly broken. ‘During my research, there were times when unable to contain my grief I left my typewriter in order to compose myself. How anyone could heartlessly massacre millions of terrified women and children, is beyond belief, but unfortunately, facts are not fantasy.’
The full story of the appalling tragedy that was visited upon over five million people is revealed in The Last Secret by Nicholas Bethell and The Victims of Yalta; also Witness to History , Trotsky’s White Negroes and Megacaust by historian Michael Walsh.
As the tragedy can neither be disclaimed nor explained, details of Operation Keelhaul and numerous other acts of Genocide committed by the Allies have been removed from the public domain. Dissident authors like Michael Walsh, Tolstoy and Bethell are subject to the same isolation as that suffered by Alexander Solzhenitsyn in the Soviet Union.
In one incident of many, in June 1945, 50,000 refugees, mainly Cossacks surrendered themselves to the British Armed Forces in southern Austria. In outright defiance of international law, even that of the deplorable Yalta Agreements, Britain acted quickly and illegally.
In great field camps scattered across Austria’s frontiers were held tens of thousands of civilians. Before being forcibly transported to the Soviets, these families were beaten into submission. Some unfortunates managed to escape; many took their own lives and those of their children, were hunted down, shot and captured by British soldiers assisted by units of the Soviet terror police the NKVD.
There are many excerpts in the aforementioned books that chill the reader’s blood. ‘At the camp, I saw a very large crowd of people, numbering several thousand, collected in a solid square with women and children in the middle and men around the outside. A body of fifteen to twenty priests was assembled in one part of the crowd, wearing vestments and carrying religious pictures and banners. At 07.30 the priest began to conduct a service and the whole crowd began to chant.’
He (Major Rusty Davies) formed his men up along the unfenced side of the square. Some were armed with pick-helves, others with rifles loaded with live ammunition. The riflemen had bayonets tied to their belts. He gave them the order to fix bayonets.’
Major ‘Rusty’ Davies described how his men executed a perfect drill movement ‘like guardsmen at Buckingham Palace’, after which he did not think the Cossacks; men, women and children would resist but resist they did.
‘Even when the soldiers advanced into the crowd with their swinging clubs and bayonets, the Cossack families carried on praying and refused to move. Like a herd of animals facing an attack by predators, the men had hidden their women and children in the middle of the crowd, while along the edge was a line of young men resolved to defend the tribe.
‘The people formed themselves into a solid mass; kneeling and crouching with their arms locked around each other’s bodies.’ The soldiers tried taking hold of individual Cossacks and pulling them away from the mob. Ivan Martynenko remembers how ‘the whole crowd trembled and rocked as the soldiers tugged at it, but they were not able to prise anyone away,’ concedes Major ‘Rusty’ Davies.
‘People were rushing past my legs, scared out of their wits. Everything was mixed up; the singing, the prayers, the groans and the screams, the cries of the wretched people the soldiers managed to grab, the weeping children and the foul language of the soldiers.
‘Everyone was beaten, even the priests, who raised their crosses over their heads and continued to pray. I prayed to God to help me to get to my feet. I managed to get up and ran with the crowd through the broken fence into another field outside the camp. There, many people, led by priests, fell to their knees and continued to pray,’ says Zoë Polaneska.
Desperate mothers killed their children rather than suffer their being killed by British and Red Army troops. ‘More terrible still were the suicides that took place on the bridge which spanned the River Drau.
‘The river seemed our only salvation. One jump into the raging stream and all would be ended.’ Many people made for the bridge, most of them aiming to escape into the hills, but a few resolved to end their lives.
Zoë Polaneska remembers tearing a piece of her skirt to try to bandage her legs, which were streaming with blood, and soldiers firing machine-guns over the heads of the fleeing Cossacks to try to bring them to a halt. Nevertheless, they poured across the bridge like ants and were quickly in among the trees. It was then that she saw with her own eyes women and children jumping off the bridge into the water.’
‘What shocked the soldiers most of all was that the Cossacks were not only drowning themselves, but also their children.’
A typical case is described by the émigré writer, Fyodor Kubanski: ‘A young woman with her two small children ran to the edge. She embraced the first child for a moment, and then suddenly flung him into the abyss. The other child was clinging to the bottom of her skirt and shouting, ‘Mama, don’t! Mama! I’m frightened!’
‘Don’t be afraid, I’ll be with you,’ the frantic woman answered. One jerk of her arms and the second child was flying into the waters of the River Drau. Then, she raised her arms to make the sign of the cross. ‘Lord, receive my sinful soul’, she cried, and before her hand reached her left shoulder she had leaped in after her children. In a moment she was swallowed by the raging whirlpool.
‘Davies’s most terrible memory, and one confirmed by many other witnesses, is of a Cossack who first shot his wife and three children, then shot himself. He found them himself by a sharp dip in the ground, the wife and children lying side by side on a grassy bank and the man lying opposite them, a revolver in his hand.
Davies says, ‘I think it was this that brought the horror of it all home to me, that anyone could do such a thing. He remembers, as he looked at the bodies, how could the man have killed these four people?
What the man must have done, Davies concluded, was to take one child to the bank, kill him, then go and collect another child, kill him, and so on until all four were dead and he could be sure that none of his family would fall into Soviet hands. Naumenko writes that the man’s name was Pyotr Mordovkin and that his wife’s name was Irina.’
Davies wrote in his report ‘Terrified and hysterical people threw themselves on their knees before the soldiers begging to be bayoneted or shot to death as an alternative to loading. There were soldiers pushing people along with rife-butts.’
These poor devils are going back to be shot.’ an officer told him. Then the first trucks began to arrive. Smith remembers, ‘frightened, desperate old people and children crying’, as well as ‘two or three aged men with white hair and beards, their heads bleeding from being beaten with rifle-butts.’
Smith writes, ‘Some of the children had been separated from their parents. Somewhere, I think, too shocked even to cry or to pray, but climbed into the vans quietly to squat in a corner.’
‘Davies came down to the train and saw it standing there, full of screaming people, waiting for the signal to depart. In all, 6,500 Cossacks were sent east that day.
On June 2, 1945, the soldiers were able to dispatch 1,858 Cossack civilians and on June 3 a further 1,487. Captain J. V Baker was the British officer at the actual hand over. ‘As each train arrived the Soviet soldiers would march down the length of it and station themselves, two men opposite each truck, about 30 or 40 trucks per train, about thirty people per truck. At the word of command, they undid the padlocks and let the people out.
Baker’s only job was to count the people, to check the numbers against his list and hand over the equivalent number of ration packages. The trains had left in the morning and they had arrived at seven or eight o’clock each evening. They just had little gratings, barred gratings for ventilation. There were men, women and children in the trucks, but the only sanitation they had was a galvanised dustbin.
It was not an uncommon sight to find dead bodies in the trucks. I cannot give numbers, because I did not go along inspecting the whole train, but I would say at an estimate that there were seven or eight bodies in each train on arrival.
One of them had managed to cut his throat somehow or other with a piece of barbed wire. In other cases, they managed to strangle themselves with scarves or pieces of material twisted and fashioned into a rope.’
‘The prisoners were treated coarsely but not brutally. They were pushed and shoved, but there was no resistance, no fighting or trying to get back or away. They were all completely docile, resigned to their fate.’ The soldiers collected them all quickly into groups and marched them away. Baker says, ‘some of them did not get very far, I am afraid.
At the back of the station, there was a wood, a copse, and they seemed to be marched behind this copse. Shortly afterwards there were quite a number of sustained bursts of machine-gun fire. I can’t say for certain what happened, because I couldn’t see the shooting, but I am pretty sure that a lot of them were shot there and then, not on the siding itself but just around at the back of the wood.’
‘An Austrian railway official ran up to me and asked me to come and take a look at the train. I went into one of the carriages and found the place a total shambles. The whole train was bespattered with blood. They were open-plan carriages and I remember the bloodstains where bodies had been dragged right down the corridor between the seats and down three or four steps. The lavatories were absolutely covered with blood and it looked as if people had locked themselves in, presumably to commit suicide.’
Owen Frampton, a British officer spoke to some of the soldiers who had been guarding the train. ‘Their story was that the train was taken only a few hundred yards across the frontier before it was halted. A number of Cossacks, mainly officers, were then taken from the train and shot.
We too heard that Cossacks had been breaking windowpanes and disembowelling themselves with splinters of broken glass. He says, I went to the Colonel and told him that I just could not carry on with it. He hauled me over the coals, but in the end, he didn’t take it any further.’
McMillan remembers being guided to a small railway station where there was a barbed-wire enclosure. We saw the Cossacks being unloaded from the trucks. First, they were searched. All personal valuables, especially money and watches were taken from them, even the packets of food they had been given for the journey. Then they were marched away. No British soldier saw them again, and, as McMillan says, ‘It didn’t take much imagination to know what was going to happen to these people.’
‘A few were killed by the guards during the journey and many others died through disease and general weakness brought about by terrible conditions. When anything like this happened, it was the British whom the prisoners blamed as ‘those responsible for our misery’.
One survivor had written; ‘I never once heard anyone cursing the Americans or any other the other allies. All our fury, hatred and threats were directed against the English.’
FOOTNOTE: Many of the Cossacks handed over were not part of any agreement, some were foreign nationals. These victims included at least one who had earned British decorations. The deportation of these unfortunate peoples was strictly illegal under international law. 50,000 civilians, who had surrendered to the British Army, were simply a problem to be disposed of.

I love that meme you have, Mr. Walsh! The one about how it took down 3 empires (England, America and Soviet Union) to take down Germany. I use that quote lately with people who buy the WWII narrative that ‘Germans were evil’ and ‘we beat those fascists!” I tell them “Yeah, it took them a decade, took three nations to do it, the West become Cultural Marxists and Eastern Europe fell under communism. The Germans would have eliminated communism and the Cold War”

Ah, not three nations but three world empires and like the meme says, it took them 13.6 years to occupy a nation half the size of Texas…. some victory huh?
After reading the above, does anybody still deny that the english speaking peoples should be exterminated?
