“For evidence of this indifference, consider the unread Soviet archives. Pavel Stroilov, a Russian exile in London, has on his computer 50,000 unpublished, untranslated, top-secret Kremlin documents, mostly dating from the close of the Cold War. He stole them in 2003 and fled Russia. Within living memory, they would have been worth millions to the CIA; they surely tell a story about Communism and its collapse that the world needs to know. Yet he can't get anyone to house them in a reputable library, publish them, or fund their translation. In fact, he can’t get anyone to take much interest in them at all.”

I wonder if Hinsdale College would be interested?

Or Westminister College, site of the famous "Iron Curtain" speech?

None of the Conservative think tanks would want to fund translations, or perform archival work?

No American billionaire would want to take this on as a project?

“Nazis”, as THE only acceptable definition of the WWII bad guys, was the invention of the Soviet propaganda when they established their client state DDR, and wanted to distinguish between the “good” and the “bad” Germans. (The bad ones, the Nazis, were all in the Western sectors, needless to say. In face the East had its share of unrepentant National Socialists.) It’s caught up nicely in the West, just as the idea of “Racism”, also a Soviet propaganda anti-clonialist, anti-imperialist invention.

These things only confirm for me that history can only be understood if viewed through a spiritual or religious lens.

Profound truth.

Reagan Library might be interested in this. It's hard to believe that the entities you mentioned wouldn't be falling all over themselves to get that material.

I understand your premise and I know how the history was changed after 1945 in East Germany, to make it almost appear as if east Germans were communist comrades waiting for liberation. The reverse was very different. Racism in and of itself certainly isn’t Russian communist creation, it’s served it’s purpose through out history any time the charge has been thrown around. I just meant “the Nazis’’, where ever they hailed from in Germany, not something that fell out of the clouds one day. It’s a kind of ‘’third-person’’ view of the history, as if to say ‘’That wasn’t us, it was those ‘’Nazis’’.
