The cruelty of Polish history

News itemIn the village of Gorzno, in northern Poland, the streets were largely empty as people stayed home to watch television.

“It is very symbolic that they were flying to pay homage to so many murdered Poles,” said resident Waleria Gess, 73.

“I worry because so many clever and decent people were killed,” said high school student Pawel Kwas, 17. “I am afraid we may have problems in the future to find equally talented politicians.”

The much over-used word “irony” doesn’t capture the link between a Katyn forest commemoration and the deaths of so many people from today’s government of Poland.  God bless Poland.
