Since I started writing the column and to mention friends and relatives in the same me something strange began to happen. Those who still did not mention in this little square of paper say: “Hey! Then what? When you say something pious about me? … Do not you remember that time …?”. Keep in mind that we are talking about a humble little column of notoriety.

In the forest of Katyn, Smolenks, close to the border with Belarus, were executed in 1940 over 20 thousand Polish civilians in the hands of the Russian secret police. Stalin’s Russians blamed the Nazis for the holocaust and only in 1990 Mikhail Gorbachev acknowledged the facts. If relationships between Russia and Poland was weak, with the confession of guilt is compounded. So the Polish President Lech Kaczynski agreed to travel to Smolenks to pay tribute to victims of the slaughter.
