Katyn Forest Massacre DVD
Mystery, controversy and horror shrouded the discovery by the Germans on April 13th, 1943, of the mass graves of several thousand officers of the former Polish Army murdered on Stalin's orders and then buried in Katyn Forest near Smolensk. This English-language documentary made by a Polish emigre group uses the Germans' own film records to depict the investigation of the massacre by an international commission. The communists' own later inquiry regarding Katyn and their false charge of Germany responsibility for the murders is also analyzed and enhanced with authentic Soviet footage. Many gruesome scenes of the exhumation of the dead are included in this grim cinematic record of an incident which not only the Soviets, but also the democratic nations with whom they now enjoy economic ties, prefer be forgotten.
B&W, 19 minutes.
