    Estimated reading time: 1 minute

    The events of September 1, 1939, marked a dark chapter in world history as Germany, with the support of Russia, ignited one of the bloodiest conflicts ever witnessed. Fast forward to 2022, and the roles seemed to have reversed, as highlighted by Marcin Romanowski, Poland’s Deputy Minister of Justice. In his social media post, Romanowski emphasized that only breaking the Berlin-Moscow axis could guarantee peace. He also underscored Poland’s historic experience with the aggressive and criminal collaboration between Russia and Germany.

    On the fateful morning of September 1, 1939, Germany launched an unprovoked attack on Poland without declaring war. Just 16 days later, the Red Army entered Poland, executing the provisions of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact.

    Changing Dynamics

    Romanowski’s remarks shed light on the shifting dynamics in international relations. In the past, Poland experienced firsthand the devastating consequences of German-Russian cooperation. Today, the world faces new challenges and alliances, where understanding historical lessons becomes crucial in maintaining global peace.

    As history reminds us, alliances can evolve, and today’s friends might become tomorrow’s adversaries. Poland’s historical perspective on the German-Russian axis serves as a stark reminder of the importance of vigilance and diplomacy in preventing conflicts and ensuring a peaceful world.
