Why Was The Yalta Agreement A Betrayal

In February 1944, the European Advisory Commission, against the wishes of the United States, drew up a plan to divide post-war Germany into three roughly equal zones. It was a triumph for the British who, at the end of hostilities, would have only a fraction of the American forces in Western Europe, let alone the Russians. Not knowing that Tehran had a secret agreement and was changing Poland`s borders, the commissioners assigned most of Russia`s pre-war German zone to a territory that would be Polish. For the Allies, it is no secret to the Allies that General W.Adyslaw Sikorski, Prime Minister of the Polish government in exile based in London, had been, before his death in July 1943, the author and not Stalin`s concept of the concept of a Western displacement of Polish borders along a Oder-Neisse line to compensate for the renunciation of the eastern territories of Poland as part of a rapprochement of Poland with the USSR. [37] Sikorski`s special political advisor at the time, Jezef Retinger also agreed with the concept of Poland`s post-war borders reoriented, and Retinger wrote in his memoirs: “At the Tehran conference in November 1943, the big three agreed that Poland in the West should receive territorial compensation for the country it was losing to Russia. It was a good deal. [38] The term Western treason (Czech language: zrada Zepadu) was coined after the Munich Conference in 1938, when Czechoslovakia was forced to cede to Germany the Sudetenland, the most populous country in Germany. The area contained Czechoslovakian border fortifications and durable defences against the German invasion. [15] [16] [17] Germany invaded Czechoslovakia a year later. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, a complex series of alliances were formed between the nations of Europe, in the hope of avoiding future wars (either with Germany or with the Soviet Union). With the advent of Nazism in Germany, this system of alliance was strengthened by the signing of a series of “mutual aid” alliances between France, Great Britain and Poland (French-Polish Alliance). The agreement stated that in the event of war, other allies should mobilize and implement a “ground intervention within two weeks” to support the attacked ally.

[21] [22] [23] The Anglo-Polish agreement stipulated that in the event of hostilities, the other side would provide “all support and support in its power” with a European power. [24] Secretary of State Stuart Eizenstat criticized Poland`s accession to NATO last month by addressing the “betrayal” of Western allies at the 1945 Yalta Conference. Thus, in this Crimean city, half a century ago, reflections are still discussed – as irrationally as possible. But only five years after Yalta, journalist Ralph de Toledano, in his emblem “Seeds of Treason” (1950), noticed that “Hiss entered and out of negotiations.” At a pre-conference in Marrakech, Hiss and Szczece agreed on a unity government in Warsaw that sealed Poland`s fate. Stettinius wrote in “Roosevelt and the Russians at Yalta” (1949) that when fDR asked a lawyer to review the Polish agreement, “I called Algiers Hiss.” Roosevelt held on with his head and said, “I know, Bill, I know. But this is the best thing I can do for Poland. The bishop`s conclusion: “It was the best and the worst. Time would not improve American betrayal. The Yalta Conference (February 4-11, 1945) recognized the era of Soviet rule over Central and Eastern Europe, which followed the Soviet occupation of these countries when they advanced against Nazi Germany. This reign lasted until the end of communist rule in Central and Eastern Europe in late 1989 and the collapse of the Soviet Union in December 1991, leaving bitter memories of Western betrayal and Soviet domination in the region`s collective memory. [43] For many Americans, the Yalta conference was a “betrayal” of Poland and the Atlantic Charter.

[44] “After the Second World War,” says Strobe Talbott, “many central and
