  • Memorial well maintained, well thought out. Especially good that there are plaques with the names of the victims. But this applies only to the Polish part of the cemetery. In the Russian part of the managed not only to a single name does not write even dates shootings there. As always-and nowhere to find list was robbed! Two good Museum (chargeable). When entering the Polish part worth ugly stand, oblivajushhij mud. Especially cynically written on it the assertion that 1939-45 Gg. It was a kind of brotherhood of the USSR and Poland in the fight against Germany. Availability-from Smolensk to Kashena Street 2, go quite often. By train you can get to the station. Katyn, but quite far from it go to the Memorial.

  • It is a place for reflection and silent walk. Memorial to executed in different years residents of the SOVIET UNION, as well as prisoners on poles, captured by the Red Army during the intervention in Poland in September 1939. The Memorial is very simple, but adequately organized. Unpleasantly struck only one stand, telling the tens of thousands of Red Army soldiers killed by the Poles in 1919-1921. Booth pushes reader would like to believe that Poles even more heavy Soviet people than here in Katyn, poles were shot. Therefore, quits. While the creators stand silent about how it happened that armed soldiers in 1919-1921 g. were on the territory of a foreign State of Poland. What they were doing there, these guys-the invaders, which Poles captured and tortured?
