They were prisoners of war captured by Soviet aggressors during the invasion of Poland, carried out by the USSR together with the German Reich in September 1939.

Statement by the Institute of National Remembrance in connection with the attempts to manipulate history on the anniversary of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact

In the interwar period, the Republic of Poland was vitally interested in maintaining peace on the European continent. It concluded two non-aggression pacts with both totalitarian neighbours: in 1932 (with the USSR) and in 1934 (with the German Reich). Both agreements meant renunciation of war in mutual relations. In this way Poland intended to consolidate peace and existing borders, the Polish-German and the Polish-Soviet one.

Statement by the Institute of National Remembrance on German benefits received by Poles

The official response of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Integration of North Rhine-Westphalia regarding pensions allegedly being paid to Polish collaborators by Germany is crowning evidence of French press reports on the subject being untrue and misleading.

In such a case journalistic diligence would require clarification not only by franceinfo, but also by the cited Agence France Presse.
