The Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Katyn Massacre is celebrated every year on April 13.

“Every April 13, we especially honor the memory of nearly 22,000 Poles who fell victim to the monstrous communist crime against peace, humanity and the Polish nation. The genocide act, which was the Katyn massacre, continues in our historical memory as a painful wound and a warning” – he stressed Andrzej Duda.

He recalled that after September 17, 1939 “over half of the territory of the Republic was under the occupation of the USSR”. “Nearly 250,000 Polish prisoners of war were taken into captivity. The officers held the longest detention in the NWKD. Although imprisoned, they remained faithful to their homeland and kept the honor of a soldier of the Republic of Poland” – we read in the message.
