Two Polish tragedies

August 17th, 2012

This memorial at Our Lady of Consolation honors the 22,000 Polish citizens massacred in the Katyn Forest and elsewhere by the Soviet secret police in 1940, as well as the 96 (including Poland's president and many other government, military, and religious leaders) who died in a plane crash in 2010 while on their way to a 70th anniversary commemoration of the massacre.
