The Soviet Union did not invade Poland in September, 1939.
"The truth is that the USSR did not invade Poland in September, 1939. However, so completely has this non-event passed into historiography as "true" that I have yet to find a recent history book from the West that actually gets this correct. The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was a non-aggression pact, not an alliance of any kind. The claim that the USSR and Hitler's Germany were "allies" is simply stated over and over again but is never backed up with any evidence."
The above quote is taken from Grover Furr's book BLOOD LIES: The Evidence that Every Accusation against Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union in Timothy Snyder's Bloodlands Is False. Plus: What Really Happened in: the Famine of 1932-33; the "Polish Operation"; the "Great Terror"; the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact; the "Soviet invasion of Poland"; the"Katyn Massacre"; the Warsaw Uprising; and "Stalin's Anti-Semitism". New York: Red Star Publishers, 2014.
Those people who want to find out the truth, instead of listening to lies in programs like Behind Closed Doors, should read Furr's books.
Behind Closed Doors is just one of many, many efforts to falsify history in recent decades. Of course, the lies in this program are directed against Russia and, historically, against the Soviet Union. These lies are repeated over and over again in the European Union, in the USA, and in other Western states in order to justify NATO aggression against Russia and to demonize communism. The anti-communist lies present in Behind Closed Doors were thought up in the West during the Cold War, and, after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, they've been promoted as fact. Anyone who points out that these "facts" are in fact lies is ridiculed and attacked, and historians who try to tell the truth are prevented from doing so or threatened with job loss. So, this is what's going on in the "democratic" West and in nationalist European states like Poland. In part, the anti-communist lies are used to justify exploitation in Europe and in the rest of the West. People in the West and in other places are taught that they have no alternative and that social justice is wrong. As many honest people say, living standards for Europeans, especially for Eastern Europeans, fell drastically under capitalism, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the European Union is now, in 2017, a basket case of economic stagnation and degeneracy.
