During an official ceremony on September 17 to mark the 75th anniversary of the invasion of Poland by the Soviet Red Army at the start of World War 2, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski unveiled, in the Warsaw Citadel, the future site of Katyn Museum, a memorial plaque commemorating victims of Stalin’s secret police (NKVD).

On Sept. 17 1939, despite a Polish-Soviet non-aggression pact of 1932, the Red Army marched into then-eastern Poland, now in Ukraine.
