I notice no one is lined up with a tin cup in front of the Russian embassy to collect for the far more extensive system of slave labor that existed for many more years, and the killings of civilians that were probably more numerous than that of the Nazis.

I think the surviving spouses of the 10,000 Polish officers murdered in the Katyn Forest near Smolensk should receive reparations from the Russians.

Of course, if you fought on the winning side and made a major contribution to ultimate victory, who would bother coming after you for any small measure of justice?

Certainly not your former allies.
