Katyn

Jump to last reply

Because of my new-found interest in Polish history, I bought the Polish film "Katyn" on DVD and just watched it this afternoon. It is very powerful and brutal, especially at the end where the film presents the massacre of some of the 22,000 Polish officers, professors and doctors and other members of the Polish intelligentsia. It's just relentless. The massacre was carried out at the order of Beria's NKVD, although the Soviets blamed the Nazis.

It also portrays the measures taken by the Soviets against Poles who refused to accept the idea that the massacre was committed by the Nazis.

The truth about the massacre was not revealed until 1990.
