"It first appeared in January 1849, in Marx’s journal, Neue Rheinische Zeitung”, Engels wrote how the class war, in Marxist terms. When socialist revolution happens, war class happens, there will be primitive societies in Europe, two stages behind, because they are not even capitalists yet. And he had in mind the Basques, and the Bretons, and the Scottish highlanders, and the Serbs. He calls them ‘racial trash’ ... Völkerabfälle ... 'racial trash' ... and they will have to be destroyed, because being two stages behind in the historical struggle, it would be impossible to bring them up to the point of the revolutionary." -- George G. Watson

“In both systems we have an ideology which, which has the ambition of creating a new man. That means that both systems, don't agree with human nature as it is; they're at war with nature, with human nature, this is the root of totalitarianism. You find it both in the nazi--nazism it's an ideology based on false biology and communism is based on false sociology. But both systems are--have an ambition of being scientific and resting on a scientific basis.” ― Françoise Thom

The Soviet Story is a 2008 documentary film about Soviet Communism and Soviet–German collaboration before 1941 written and directed by Edvīns Šnore and sponsored by the UEN Group in the European Parliament.

The film features interviews with western and Russian historians such as Norman Davies and Boris Sokolov, Russian writer Viktor Suvorov, Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky, members of the European Parliament and the participants, as well as survivors of Soviet terror.

Using these interviews together with historical footage and documents the film argues that there were close philosophical, political and organizational connections between the Nazi and Soviet systems.
