Today, most of us are probably putting our feet up to watch some college football game or planning an outdoor BBQ for the big Labor Day weekend ahead. After all, there’s nothing special about September 1st; nothing important to remember.
But there is…
Exactly 73 years ago, on this European “Day of Infamy,” Germany invaded Poland, unleashing an all-new style of “blitzkrieg” warfare; a startlingly thorough firestorm attack that would lead to an all-out invasion, essentially beginning World War II with all the barbarity Hitler’s nazi regime could muster.
Yes, for the people of Poland, September 1st, 1939 was the beginning of Hell on Earth. During the invasion of Poland, entire cities would be devastated and millions of people exterminated—mass-murdered in a genocidal killing spree that went on for almost 6 years.
September 1st is just another day? Absolutely not. Please watch the short video above (8 minutes) and remember those innocent victims of only 73 years ago. If you are of a religious nature, please send up a prayer for the people of Poland. Survivors of that horrific time haven’t forgotten what happened today—and neither should the world.
