VIDEO: The end of World War II - two concepts
What did the end of World War II mean for Eastern and Central Europe? Edward Lucas (Senior Fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis) and Roger Moorhouse (British historian and author) shortly explain the tension between the glorious "Liberator" concept, created in Soviet Union, and the reality of post-war Europe.
The fact is that the communist terror claimed hundreds of thousands of lives after the war and many Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Poles, Ukrainians and others fought the Soviet secret police NKVD as members of national resistance movements.
The video is created by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania.
