>Final Phase Backgrounder: The Soviet Story film exposes Stalin’s "class genocide" against Soviet citizens, cynical pact with fellow socialist Hitler

>The collapse of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the [20th] century.
— Vladimir Putin, former KGB agent, current prime minister and past president of Russian Federation; statement made in April 2005

Yesterday I watched The Soviet Story DVD which, surprisingly, I found at our public library. Directed by Edvins Snore and first released in 2008, this film documents the murder of millions of Soviet citizens under Stalin, as well as the Soviet dictator’s sordid, cynical pact with fellow Jew-hating socialist Hitler.

Among the experts interviewed are Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky, GRU defector Viktor Suvorov, and contributers to Harvard University Press’ Black Book of Communism, first published in the late 1990s. The similarities between Nazism and communism are emphasized, demolishing the common perception of their mutual hostility.

This shocking documentary contains old footage and many pictures of mounds of corpses piled up by the Gestapo/SS and NKVD and, therefore, is not recommended for young children or the faint of heart. However, The Soviet Story ably supports many of the contentions made at this and related blogs. As the film’s promotional website relates, the Kremlin media has launched its own propaganda war against Snore.

    >I wonder why it seems that we're so warped with the lie that the Soviets were on our side "before" World War II even though they supported the Nazis and also help take over Poland and Eastern Europe.Even Russian officials are forced to admit this…yet we're just quite blind to ignore the obvious…

    >I fear this kind of class genocide might also be coming to the USA with dangerous rhetoric from populist leaders on blaming the banking industry and private industries for the economic mess.Already in Europe, there are agitators on the streets of various European countries causing riots and threatening to do the same in Europe.
