Katyn - 1940 - Poland
Zygmunt Bell tolls twenty times for Katyn again, the 'cursed' place
Poland's President, the heads of its military, other senior government leaders, died today when their plane crashed near Katyn Forest in western Russia. They had journeyed to that 'cursed' place to mark the 70th anniversary of the massacre of thousands of Polish Army officers under the orders of Stalin. These officers were NOT killed in battle. They were rounded up AFTER Poland had surrendered at the start of World War II.
Don't confuse with Khatyn massacre in Belarus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khatyn_massacre (S.Tome)
