It seems that this year we’ve been hearing a whole lot about Katyn. After years of Soviet/Russian cover-ups about the massacre it’s about time. Unfortunately, much of the discussion came as a result of the tragic plane crash at Smolensk when in April the Polish President, his wife and 94 other dignitaries perished while en route to mark the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre.
But despite all the talk many still are not familiar with the details. So, if you get a chance, make sure to check out the Katyn Exhibition at the Metro Hall Rotunda – 55 John Street, Toronto (right across from the Princess of Wales Theatre.)
The exhibition was organized by the Polish National Union of Canada and the –Polish Scouting Association in Canada with the help of Stanislaw Brodzki and Jerzy Kowalczyk, who have provided several historical artifacts.
The original occasion was the 30th anniversary of Toronto’s own Katyn memorial but since Poland’s tragic news it seems so much more significant.
The exhibition is free of charge to the public and runs till June 22nd from 8:30 am to 9:30 pm.
