With "Katyn", celebrated Polish director Andrzej Wajda delivers a sweeping drama that exposes an oft-overlooked moment in WWII history. After the Nazis stormed into Poland, Stalin ordered Russian soldiers into the country as well, in order to oversee the imprisonment of all Polish officers. As these prisoners fearfully struggled to make sense of what was happening to them, the women in their lives - wives, siblings, mothers, daughters - anxiously awaited their return. Though mystery shrouded the events that were to unfold, these women eventually learned the bitter truth. Joseph Stalin ordered the liquidation of the Polish officer corps, slaughtering nearly 22,000 men in Katyn Forest. Sadly, they were ordered to remain silent due to post-war Poland's dependence on Russia.
