IWP student publishes review on Katyn in Sarmatian Review

February 9, 2011  |  PAPERS & STUDIES

Rice University's Sarmatian Review recently published a review of the "Bulletin of the [Polish] Institute of National Memory" by IWP student and Kosciuszko Chair assistant, Pawel Styrna.

The Bulletin's issue was dedicated to the Katyn Forest Massacre of April 1940, a communist crime in which, upon Stalin's direct orders, 25,700 Polish POWs - among them officers, policemen, and other members of the nation's elite - were executed. Mr. Styrna has pointed out that, similarly to the German Nazis during the Holocaust, the Soviet executioners kept their victims hopeful, confused, and oblivious to their fate until the very end.
