Katyn Killings


In the Record


by John H. Lauck



About the Book:

    Here is one of the little known "pockets" of historical carnage in which the Polish people were the victims. The guilt--either of the Germans or the Soviets--is still being debated. For, how could 15,000 Polish prisoners of war simply disappear early (Spring, 1940) in World War II? This thoroughly researched presentation includes the impact of the knowledge of the atrocity at Katyn Forest on the Yalta Conference and the Nuremberg Tribunal, and the successful investigation by the U.S. House of Representatives in its attempt to establish guilt. There is an objective, American viewpoint throughout, emphasizing the forensic medical evidence along with all the other opinions, data, and testimony. This second printing also includes an important Addendum attributing responsibility to one of the suspect parties, including an admission by the government involved.
