Black Ribbon Day: August 23

 

August 23 is Black Ribbon Day — to commemorate the August 23, 1939 pact between Hitler and Stalin to divide up Eastern Europe. Their collaboration continued for the first two years of WWII. These two tyrants caused the deaths of 14 million Eastern European civilians (Poles, Ukrainians, Jews, the people of the Baltics). Armed forces casualties added many more millions to the death toll.
