Operation Keelhaul (Episode 2) – 5 reasons why the Allies committed this crime (Video)

Operation Keelhaul was the code-name given to the forced “repatriation” of millions of Soviet and non-Soviet citizens to the USSR between the years 1944 and 1947 (if not beyond). At least three major Western powers were responsible for this crime against humanity – Britain, the United States, and France – with others (Canada?) potentially also taking part. This is the second video in a multi-part series where we’ll be diving into the details of what happened, and trying to figure out the motivations behind the various actors. Today, we’ll look at the five major reasons why the Allies decided to implement Operation Keelhaul, consider whether they were justified in doing what they did, and discuss the possibility that there were more reasons besides the five main ones.
