And 20,000 were shot in the back of the head in Katyn, but that's our history Delph, no need for you to concern yourself.
Thankfully my father was not an officer, otherwise this would have happened to him. Instead he was taken as a POW and spent two years in Siberia...
And this is before the Soviet Union supposedly joined WWII. And then all of a sudden they are our 'allies'!
It's strange how the truth about Katyn was suppressed for so many decades and most people in Poland would not even have been taught about the massacre in their history lessons.
And it beggars belief that the new Koalicja Europejska continually babble on about PiS wanting closer links with Russia. Russia has been responsible for a 50 year repression of Poland, including pillaging the country and killing 100,000s of citizens. Who in their right mind would want closer links with Russia? Didn't Lech Kaczynski warn about Russian aggression against its Western neighbours before he was assassinated?
