During the past few months there have been a number of important
developments concerning the "Katyn Massacre" controversy.
All of this is completely hushed up outside of Russia, where few people
know there IS a big controversy about the "canonical" view that the
Soviets shot 20,000+ Polish prisoners.
Here's a page with the summary of these developments. After that summary
there's a more general discussion of the state of the issue before these
most recent developments, as I see it.
I don't know of another summary of this situation in any language, and
certainly not in English.
So, if you want to know about the Katyn mess, which has become
politicized beyond belief, this is your only chance!
I originally wrote this page to explain why I am NOT, ever, going to
write anything about the Katyn Massacre mess.
Criticism always welcome.
P.S. In Russian there's the "Truth About Katyn -- Independent Research"
site, which is biased towards those who think the "canonical", or
"the-Soviets-Did-It" version, is false, but which does report all
developments, including those that do not fit their biases. But it
doesn't give you any real "overview". It is at http://www.katyn.ru
