Zygmunt Bauman has died, aged 91 – obituary in New York Times.
Reblogged this on Deterritorial Investigations Unit and commented:
He was trained by the NKVD in the Soviet Union 1939-41, saw active service in the military against the Germans. When he was being recommended for promotion to Major in a unit run by the NKVD in Poland post war, explicit mention was made that Bauman run a unit that liquidated many “bandits”. Think about that one – the KGB killing bandits in Poland post war. The same recommendation said that he should now pursue a career in university lecturing – which he then did. Continuing the repression. He never felt any remorse for his actions that helped impose misery and slavery on millions for decades.
