The Katyń Massacre is depicted from 1:48:20 to the end of this 2007 Andrzej Wajda film:
Wajda was 13 when he lost his father at Katyń. At 86 years old, he said in connection with his film’s premiere: “He was my ideal… he died at the age when I needed him the most.”
The massacre was prompted by NKVD chief Lavrentiy Beria’s proposal, approved by Joseph Stalin and dated March 5, 1940, to execute all captive members of the Polish Officer Corps. Beria, a gamma male in power, meets his end thirteen years later:
Beria and all the other defendants were sentenced to death on 23 December 1953. When the death sentence was passed, Beria pleaded on his knees for mercy before collapsing to the floor and wailing and crying energetically, but to no avail. … He was shot through the forehead by General Pavel Batitsky who had to stuff a rag into Beria’s mouth to silence his bawling.

What’s the relevance of the Katyń Massacre? If you are Polish, it’s your history. My grandfather was a lieutenant in Poland’s army in September of 1939, but he was deployed to the western front against the German invasion.
Everyone else ought to understand Katyń as the foreshadowing of the modern catastrophe.
From historian Norman Davies’ God’s Playground, Vol. 2, 1982 ed., pages 451 – 452. I hand-typed the following from his book:
The [15,000 Polish] officers were taken into Soviet detention in September 1939, separated from the rank and file, and sent to three separate camps in western Russia. Most of them were not professional soldiers, but reserve officers mobilized during the German offensive. They were well-trained graduates — teachers, civil servants, businessmen, doctors, scientists. From the Soviet point of view, they were the cream of the class enemy. For eight months, until May 1940, they were able to correspond with their families at home. And then the correspondence suddenly ceased. From that time on, only one man from the 15,000 was ever seen alive again. He was sent for interrogation in Moscow at the time that the original camps were being disbanded.
In April 1943, 4,321 corpses were disinterred by Germans in the Katyń Forest, on the bank of the Dnieper near Smolensk. Most had their hands tied behind their backs, and each had a German bullet in the base of his skull. Many had decipherable documents in their pockets. There is no doubt who they were. The Nazis claimed they had been killed by the Soviets in April 1940. The Soviets claimed that they had been killed by the Nazis in the winter of 1941. This explanation was dropped when someone pointed out that the victims were wearing summer uniform. One International Commission assembled by the Germans supported the German claim; another, assembled by the Soviets, supported the Soviet claim. To people who need final, documented proof, the matter is still open.
That final sentence: notice the present tense. I am citing an edition published in 1982, before the USSR had acknowledged its complicity in the massacre while the West, for reasons of diplomacy, remained officially agnostic on the war crime through the duration of the Cold War. The USSR continued to deny responsibility for the massacres until 1990, when it officially acknowledged and condemned its full role in the atrocity.
Such falsification of history — to include contemporary fake news media — is alive and well today, with stonewalling on anti-White crime and on the realities of the migrant-invasion of the West. Davies continues:
Yet to the satisfaction of most neutral observers, Soviet guilt is established beyond reasonable doubt. The Katyn massacre is the only ‘Nazi War Crime’ on Soviet territory which the Soviets never mention.
What was the purpose of the Katyń massacre? According to Norman Davies, its purpose was decapitation:
The conclusion is unavoidable. At this stage, the USSR was seeking to prevent the resurrection of an independent Poland in any form whatsoever. Stalin was outpacing Hitler in his desire to reduce Poles to the condition of a slave-nation incapable of ruling itself.
Communists have been dumbing-down modern Western education, from Brown vs Board, to deconstructionism, to marginalizing classical literary canon, to Common Core. They wreck boys’ hierarchical organizations like the Boy Scouts with obscene court orders. To get a post-national world order of slaves, you have to liquidate individual nations’ leadership class and if mass-murder is not feasible, you corrupt their traditional institutions.
In “Physical Bravery and Young Age,” I listed three ideals that naturally produce leaders among a nation’s boys and young men. Two of those are always direct targets of Communists:
Mentorship — When you visit a martial arts school or a little league baseball practice and you see non-Whites under instruction of White coaches there, you are witnessing a fatal compromise on a Männerbund structure for mentoring boys in the image of their elders. Diversity disrupts harmony. Blacks have their all-black inner-city boxing gyms. Whites have to price-out the diversity with sports like lacrosse and hockey.
Culture — As T.S. Eliot put it, “Culture may even be described simply as that which makes life worth living.” A living spirit whose great books for boys transmit masculine role models and foster a purposeful sense of identity. Culture is home. That’s why they wreck Boy Scouts and blue collar fraternities such as firefighting and construction work by pushing women and diversity on them.
The Katyń Massacre, along with episodes such as Bela Kun’s brief reign of terror in Hungary, are examples of what Communists do whenever they seize power. Communists haven’t changed, they just discarded the red star and stole the rainbow. Communism, historically led by Jewish intellectuals and sponsored by Jewish elements within the international banking community, is best understood as war on a given peoples’ organic social organization with the goal of enslaving them.
Thank God for Poland surviving the Nazi-Soviet terror, and my grandparents for their sacrifices in securing a future for their nation. Thank God for His watching over Viktor Orban and Donald Trump. Thank God for creating us free men who hang tyrants. That’s why globalists hate and fear us and why they embolden the worst of the human specie against us. The relevance of Katyń is that (((they))) and their father the devil yearn to decapitate us at a faster pace.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. [John 8:44]
President Trump smoked them out into the open before they were ready.
