They were liberated by the Soviets. The West recognizes that, and so, in fact, do many East Europeans as well: they had to get rid of the Nazis first, in order to begin their tortuous, difficult road of opposition to the Soviets. The Red Army enabled them to do that, though the price was very heavy indeed: 45 years of Soviet dictatorship. That is the paradox. In the end the East Europeans won, deservedly so. But let us not change history because of that.
