  • It is the burial place of several thousand people, not only poles, but also Russians, Jews and all nationalities of our country. While there are not only innocent victims. I myself am a resident of Smolensk, so unclear to me the concept of the Memorial, and especially the exposition of the Museum at the Memorial, which includes copies of documents allegedly proving the guilt of the USSR in the execution poles already officially recognized fakes. Therefore, visiting a memorial to stay alert and was critical to the fabrications, so-called guides. It should be noted that outside the complex, planned construction of 4 temples all the most common denominations. However, Catholics first refused to build a religious building so built only Orthodox structure. One of them is the refectory, where you can almost eat free.

  • A very quiet place. After Smolensk and it was on a huge kontaste, after the greatness and Valour of our gosudaostva, the other side of the story. Produced colossal impression all story, actions of the Polish side, all the way home, we talked about the role of identity and of the turns of history. Very good, that you can go to eat at the temple there very friendly monks)

  • I have long wanted to visit this place. It is only necessary to correctly understand what this Memorial is not only killed Polish Army officers, but also other victims of Stalin's repressions. About Polish officers is also a controversial issue. On the wall listed residence outspread. There all vshodni former kresy.
