In 2020, there is is the 80th anniversary of the Katyn Massacre. It was where the Stalinist authorities of the USSR committed crimes against the Polish elite. This tragic event is permanently inscribed in the pages of history of World War II and humanity. Today, subsequent generations of Poles pay the tribute to the memory of the Polish patriots who remained faithful to their homeland until the end of their days.

Educated young people involved in the affairs of the state, brave and devoted to Poland were cruelly murdered because they represented the Polish identity. Nowadays, Katyn symbolizes the memory of the heroes who never lost their patriotism! emphasizes Rector-Commandant of the Military University of Aviation, Brig. Gen. Pil. Piotr Krawczyk, PhD

Officers of the Polish Army and other uniformed services, representatives of the Polish intelligentsia, Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant and Mosaic chaplains fell in the Katyn Massacre. In total, approximately 22,000 Polish citizens were murdered. Polish Parliament declared the day of April 13 as the Remembrance Day of the Katyn Massacre Victims.
