Stunning sculpture as a tribute to the thousands and thousands of Polish officers soldiers and Cadets who were summarily executed in the Katyn Forest by the evil Russian communists who were bent on world domination. The Russians wanted to eliminate as many of the Polish troops as possible with the idea of taking Poland and never giving it back. They figured if they could eliminate the Officer Corps it would be easier to steal Poland from the Poles.
A memorial for a horrific but important moment in Polish history. Also a great piece of art.
This WWll war memorial was erected and paid for by money raised by local Baltimorians of polish descent. It is dedicated to the 22,000 Polish Army officers that were captured by the Russian forces, taken to the Katyn forest 250mi. from Poland , in Russia, murdered and buried in mass graves. It took decades of detective work to prove the Russian forces committed the atrocity. The monument was the original idea of Maj. Clement Kneefel USA, Ret and Mrs. Helen Adelman and they started raising money for the structure in 1975.
