Committed in utmost secrecy in April-May 1940 by the NKVD on the direct orders of Joseph Stalin, for nearly 50 years the Soviet regime succeeded in maintaining the fiction that the Katyn Massacre was a Nazi atrocity, their story unchallenged by Western governments fearful of upsetting a powerful wartime ally and Cold War adversary. Seeking a fuller picture, Jane Rogoyska focuses on the experience of the few survivors of the massacre and the Polish wartime forensic investigators whose quest for the truth sometimes came at great personal cost.
