As much as people are trying to make him a legend, I think it only shows that Poland is rather short on true "legends,"

Only some stupid freaks try to make him a legend.
In each of your comments you prove how little you know what is going on in Poland now a days and still you like to judge and say sh*t about the country you don't live in.

It would be nice to get the P.O.W. files to look over the names for those that survived to see if there are any names that can be recognized. I have relatives that claim my grandfather (as a non com) may have been a witness to the massacre. But because he knew German and Russian besides Polish may have saved his life.

So he spent some time as a P.O.W. But not sure for how long or where. Hopefully someone will make the Katyn files and other attachments in regards to names of those shot or as P.O.W.'s available as a PDF.

It seems alot of Russians have felt sympathy towards Poland since they learned about Katyn.

I had a Russian online apologize to me for what was done to Poles under the Soviet Union.

About 22.000 Polish army officers, policemen, priests, landowners, civil servants etc etc were executed by Soviet stalinist communists in 1940.
Google for Katyn Massacre and choose the language you understand: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katyn_massacre

Sadly it's not time yet for the Russians to fully acknowledge and revaluate what happened to them during the Soviet reign in general and at stalin's reign in particular. This is still not an altogether rare occurrence when I see people denying the Katyn as well as stalin's crimes against humanity on the whole. Katyn is probably the most ignominious page in Russian history.

[Moved from]: Wlad the 5th of Poland, died 1997

An acquaintance met his brother in London - embarrassed at the family connection ...

Often wore flamboyant 'regal' clothes in public.

Importantly, he issued (in 1943) the first English-language document on the Katyn massacre - for which he was pilloried by British left-wingers. Rather predicatably, he was labelled a fascist by them. He also got interned by the govt, keen to keep good relations with Stalin.

So nothing new under the sun.

It has been quite some time now that Russia was supposed to declassify their files on the Katyn Forest Massacre. Has anyone heard what has happened as of yet to these records? Have the records been reviewed, scanned and turned into pdf files so people can access and read them?
