30th Anniversary of the Liberation of Fascism On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the liberation from fascism, the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications of the German Democratic Republic issues four multi-color special postage stamps and a special postage stamp block. 30th Anniversary of the Liberation from Hitler's Fascism On May 8, 1945, the bloodiest and most devastating of all wars in Europe came to an end. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the victory of the Soviet Union and its allies over fascism and the unconditional surrender of the Hitlerwehr. "The Soviet people have honorably passed the harsh trial of the war," said the Secretary-General of the CPSU, Leonid I Brezhnev, "the enemy was smashed and knocked down, our glorious people, our heroic people, held the glorious Leninist banner of the Great October. up the banner of socialism on earth and wielded it victorious by the fire of the war years. " The victory of the first socialist state in human history, achieved under unprecedented sacrifices, led to a profound change in the international balance of power and ushered in a new stage in the development of the world revolutionary process, the peoples' struggle for peace, anti-imperialist democracy and socialism. It created the socialist world system. The great liberation act of the Soviet Army also gave the German people a historic opportunity and at the same time an obligation to initiate a turnaround in their history. In its appeal of June 11, 1945, the Communist Party of Germany signaled the way and goal of the German people for building an antifascist-democratic order. Communists, class-conscious Social Democrats, and other anti-fascists united in East Germany on this political platform, which took into account the historical teachings and agreed with the principles of the Potsdam Agreement and the Charter of the United Nations. Under the leadership of its revolutionary fighting party, the Socialist Unity Party of Germany, the working class, in solid alliance with the working peasants and other working people, carried out the anti-fascist-democratic upheaval and founded the German Democratic Republic in October 1949. The revolutionary process of social transformation was from the outset an integral part of the formation and consolidation of the world socialist system and developed according to the universal laws of the worldwide transition of humanity from capitalism to socialism. Supported by the rich experience of the CPSU and the constant support and support of the Soviet Union, the GDR developed into a socialist city respected in the world in close friendship and fraternal affinity with the country of Lenin. The GDR is firmly anchored in the community of socialist fraternal countries and makes an active contribution in the global peace struggle, for democracy and social progress. On the territory of the FRG, on the other hand, the people masses were blocked from reaching a democratic new beginning by the conspiracy of the German big bourgeoisie with international monopoly capital and the right-wing leaders of social democracy. On the thirtieth anniversary of the liberation from Hitler's fascism, it has become apparent that the strength and growth of real socialism has made peace in Europe safer and that the European continent is experiencing the longest period of peace in its recent history. Over the three decades, the most aggressive imperialist forces tried again and again to reverse the results of World War II. In the hard class struggle against imperialism, the socialist states that rallied around the Soviet Union and the other main revolutionary currents of our era succeeded in initiating a turn from cold war to détente, to the realization of the principles of peaceful coexistence between states of different social orders. Led by the Soviet Union, the community of socialist fraternal states, in alliance with all the other peace-loving and anti-imperialist forces of the present, makes every effort to make irreversible and to further deepen the results achieved in the realization of the great peace program of the Twentieth Party Congress of the CPSU. For the working people of the GDR, the commemoration of the heroic struggle of the Red Army, the heroism of the anti-fascist resistance fighters and the world-historical significant victory over the fascist aggressors combined with the justified pride in the great socialist achievements and the view of the tasks to be solved. In the spirit of socialist internationalism and patriotism, with creativity and energy for the further all-sided strengthening of the GDR as an integral part of the socialist community, the working people of our workers and peasants state pay tribute to the 30th anniversary of the liberation, the day of the liberation on May 8, 1975 great victory of the Soviet people and its glorious armed forces over Hitler fascism. The heroes of the Soviet Union deserve eternal glory and thanks to the entire progressive humanity. The working people of the GDR belong to the victors of history through their unbreakable friendship and fraternal cooperation with the Soviet Union and the other states of the socialist community.
