Katyn

Katyn is worth seeing. The film is about the Soviet slaughter of thousands of Polish military officers in 1940 in Katyn Forest. Directed by a Pole, it’s  an unsentimental, straight look into a horrific event. After watching the film yesterday, a Polish man who was born in 1951, told me he remembers being forbidden to even say the word “Katyn.” The Soviets tried for years to erase the nation’s memory. It didn’t work.
