How did the Hitler-Stalin Pact affect the outcomes of World War II?

Not long before the second world war, Germany was invading neighboring countries such as

Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia. Britain was fearing German expansion and immediately

needed to take action against Hitler. As Hitler was not an easy target, the most powerful nation

Britain could ally with to prevent Hitler from continuing was the Soviet Union. Hitler feared this kind

of association and tried to sympathize with the Soviet Union , ending with the Hitler-Stalin Pact ,

also known as the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact. The Non-agression pact stated that the two nations

Regarding Hitler, his main ambition for this non aggression pact is to

be able to invade poland as he wished without having to be concerned with The soviet union

them. This led the jews to move further east towards the Soviet Union. The only problem is that

since the two countries were allied, the jews were also mistreated by the Soviets, so they had no

option but to go back and get persecuted. The country that had to face major actions from the

persecution of the jewish people was Poland as thousands of polish jews were persecuted from

both sides. Now that they came for them, the jews only had two options, to stay or to leave

europe . Economically, Germans and soviets both cooperated very closely as one of the articles

stated in the pact. The soviets benefitted from germanys advanced tools and technology to

complete any sort of products they produced domestically. On the other hand, Germany
