23,500 US POW's Enslaved by USSR after "Liberation"

Postby 8x57 » 1 decade 7 years ago (Thu Nov 20, 2003 10:04 pm)

When the victorious Red Army surged into Germany in 1945 it overran German POW camps holding thousands of US and British POW's. At least two sources have stated that more than 20,000 US and 30,000 British POW's were never repatriated, but were deported to Siberia and other locations in the USSR. This was hushed up by the US and British governments who did not want to "offend" our Russian allies and who did not want public outrage to de-rail the then pending Nuremberg war crimes trials.

The two sources for this contention are:

(1) "An Examination of U.S. Policy Toward POW/MIA's" by the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, May 23, 1991; and

(2) Sanders, James D. et al., "Soldiers of Misfortune, Washingtonn's Secret Betrayal of American POW's in the Soviet Union", National Press Books, Wash. D.C., 1992.

Is anyone else familiar with this subject, its credibility and its sources?
