Pro Memoria

In April and May 1940

by a decision of the highest authority of Soviet Union,

at least 22 thousand Polish prisoners and POWs were murdered

Bodies of 4,415 of them were buried in the Katyn Forest

The aim was to annihilate the Polish elite

See the site of the crime

Hear the voices of the victims

Light a candle of remembrance

Visiting the site is a symbolic walk in the Polish War Cemetery in Katyn. There are five most important places to visit along the way. For each place, we have prepared a video that allows for a closer look at the place and presents its history, as well as contains audio tracks with letters, memories, and documents about the Katyn Massacre.
