Crimes in Katyn
In 2022 we celebrate the eighty-second anniversary of the Katyn massacre. The Katyn massacre is a deliberate genocide by the highest authorities of the USSR. On the orders of Joseph Stalin, more than 22,000 innocent Poles lost their lives. Among them were soldiers of the Polish army, policemen, flower Polish intelligentsia, representatives of many different professions. The memory of the murdered Poles is a duty from which no one can free us.
