The Great White Brotherhood
in the History of the Polish Nation

"The first law of the historian is that he shall never dare utter an untruth . . .
There shall be no suspicion of partiality in his writing, or of malice."—Cicero

"The history of the world is but the biography of great men."—Thomas Carlyle
"History repeats itself first as tragedy, then as farce."—Karl Marx
"People get the history that they deserve."—Charles de Gaulle

"The banner of the Lord of the World and of the Lord Jesus Christ—these are seen as standards while the battle cry is heard on earth and while giants among men, even the sons of God, stand in Poland—the figure of a man, the Son of man himself.

"Take, then, the lesson of Poland as an archetypal pattern for every nation upon earth. For every nation, the United States not excluded, must pass through this very fiery trial. The labor unions must be purged, the economy and the government must be purged—not in the fashion of Joseph Stalin, but in the fashion of the sacred fire . . .

"For the day of the fierceness and the wrath of The Word of God is yet to come. I pray you will be ready and you will have prepared this people, as the people of Poland have been prepared through my own heart and their devotion to it."

"And inasmuch as all of you cannot read all of the Teachings or listen to all of the dictations, I suggest that you divide them up amongst yourselves so that when you take the staff as a whole and the larger Community as a whole there will be experts on certain years of Teachings, certain Masters and certain subjects, whereby the whole may be held in the heart one by one, some providing this portion, some another, and sharing it gladly with one another.

"This Teaching must be a living and a vibrant teaching. It must be alive in your hearts and minds so that when you come together with your planning, beloved, you may also share the precious gems, many of which have not been found or looked into, many of which apply to the very current world scene. Even these seven dictations were for some time unnoticed [in the archives] and therefore heretofore you have celebrated the beginning of our organization on the eighth [of August] with the first Pearl of Wisdom."

" . . . The lessons of history, even in our own lifetime (witness Hitler's attack on Britain in World War II), tell us that a nation unprepared to defend itself will be attacked; if seriously unprepared (like Poland in 1939), it will be defeated, plundered and enslaved."

Elizabeth C. Prophet
January 3, 1988

Sixty years ago, Warsaw, Poland, was reduced to a smoking ruin and its people killed or banished because it had dared to rebel against Nazi rule. In "Warsaw Rising, The Forgotten Soldiers of World War II" CNN Correspondent David Ensor details the uprising and the failure of the Allies to support it because of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.

On the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landing, CNN premied a groundbreaking documentary on a little-known chapter in the war. It told the story of the Polish resistance and its 63-day battle against the Nazis, a battle fought while the Western world celebrated the successful Allied landings at Normandy.

Through interviews with survivors and use of rarely seen footage filmed by the Underground Army, the program offered an unflinching look at how Poland, a country known as the "first ally" was abandoned in its hour of need.

Poland had been under German occupation since World War II began with the German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939. The citizens of Warsaw had longed to rebel and when the tide turned against the Nazis with the D-Day invasion, planning began.

But unbeknownst to Poland, U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had made a deal with Stalin in a clandestine meeting in Teheran. Eager to placate Stalin and keep him in the war, Roosevelt had agreed that more than a third of Poland's territory would go to the Soviet Union.

The uprising began on August 1, 1944, at 5 p.m. The Russians were close enough to help, but it would be Poles who would liberate Warsaw. The Polish Underground Home Army had about 40,000 fighters but few weapons and no heavy armor or artillery.

The first days of the uprising cost the Poles dearly as thousands died, and the Germans held onto most of their strongholds. But the Polish flag flew in the city center for the first time in five years.

The Germans counterattacked on August 3. The Allies wanted to re-supply the Polish fighters by air but the planes would have to land in Soviet-controlled territory to refuel. Stalin refused permission. Stalin had his own plans for central Europe when the war was over, and an independent Polish government was not part of them.

Despite having no supplies, the Poles held onto the section of Warsaw known as Old Town for 33 days. In a bitter battle one building changed hands seven times and the Germans did not take prisoners. Facing obliteration, Underground commanders decided to evacuate the Old Town to get to the city center for a last stand. The only method of escape was the city sewers.

After 63 days of fighting, with help from the Red Army never materializing, the Underground Army surrendered on October 2, 1944 and agreed to evacuate Warsaw. Nearly three quarters of the Underground army had perished.

The Allied victory in Europe came in May 1945. But Poland remained occupied by Soviet troops. And the Underground soldiers who made it to the West were in for a shock. The Allies had recognized the Warsaw pro-Communist regime installed by Stalin as the official government of Poland. Call it a bittersweet victory.

For the western Allies, the story of the Underground fighting for Warsaw without support was
an embarrassment. For the Soviets, it was inconvenient. In Warsaw there would be no official monument erected to the Underground fighters until 1989 after the fall of communism. The survivors of the Warsaw Uprising 1944 were sent to the Wolów Prison, where they were brutally exterminated and buried anonymously on the Garncarz burial ground.
