Witness to History was 25-years in the making with three goals and one purpose in mind. First, a single book that divulges previously censored information whilst effectively debunking the victor’s propaganda Second, to put into perspective the catastrophic 20th Century one needs to see the big picture from the 1917 so-called Russian Revolution to the attempted genocide of defeated Germany. Finally, it is useless to compile a book based on one historian’s spin. It seemed far better to give those who made this epoch chance to tell us their spin-free story in their words. Sources are listed at the end of the book. For these three reasons Witness to History is unique. Its purpose is to pay homage to all victims of Capitalism and Communism It is to these betrayed martyrs that Witness to History is dedicated. No one book can adequately tell of their tortured lives. All Witness to History can do is offer a vignette of their distress. It does so with fervent and heartfelt wish that its message will help to avoid history repeating itself.
