Statement on Katyń Memorial in Jersey City, NJ

In 1991, a memorial was unveiled in Exchange Place in Jersey City, N.J., to commemorate the victims of the Katyn Massacre by the Soviet Union in 1940. The Katyń Memorial is a 34-foot-tall bronze statue created by Polish American sculptor Andrzej Pitynski. The Memorial is a striking symbol of the brutality of the Soviet Union against the Polish Nation and its people during World War II and by extension to the millions of victims of communist regimes.
