Katyn, Russia, April 1943.

Katyn, Russia, April 1943. The Germans discovered here the bodies of 4,500 Polish officers buried in mass graves. A Red Cross commission concluded that they had been killed by Soviet troops in the spring of 1940, when around 25,000 people disappeared. Katyn came to be a symbol of mass murder and official lies. Until 1989 the Communist government in Poland and Communists throughout the world attributed the massacre to the Germans.

katyn

Soviet officers was intelectual elite at that time, and soviet"s don"t want any opposition at his part of Polland. Germany and Russia divide Polland at two half, and killed all possibly opposition.
Soviets accused nazi"s for that mass murders.

Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

At the time it was axis, (aligned with the germans) and believe it or not the soviets killed more germans than we did..after the war it became part of the soviet union..
