It is amazing that over six decades after WWII the historical narration about this crime is still not being acknowledged by so many in the West

World War II was the only War in American history that had no major anti-war movement. I grew up thinking it was because our nation's survival was at stake and everybody was in it together to defeat the people who wanted to take over our country.
What I've come to believe (especially after 9/11), is that the reason there was no real anti-war movement in WW II, was because Hitler invaded the Leftists' hero-nation The Soviet Union, and everything and anything had to be done to save them. This explains why people like George McGovern became war heroes.

"...definitely helped along by the general campaign of anti-Soviet propaganda carried on during recent months in Britain and America..."
Otherwise known as "speaking the truth".

RE :"Not only did (USSR/Stalin) communists and NKVD agents carry out the propaganda campaign but, unfortunately, the United States government helped them. The Office of War Information (OWI) tried to intimidate the Polish-American radio stations and newspapers when they told the truth about the Soviet atrocity against the Poles.
Alan Cranston was head of the Foreign Language Division of the OWI and later a U.S. Senator from California. He called a meeting of OWI officials because the Polish-American radio stations had taken a rather antagonistic attitude toward Russia on the Katyn forest issue. Cranston felt that this was inimical to the war effort and should be straightened out. The radio stations and newspapers were contacted and threatened with being closed down if they continued to tell the truth about the Soviet Union.
You know the saying: Stalin was better than Hitler so he is our friend.
Meanwhile US communists were infesting the US government under Roosevelt at the same time, but heck, at least they were not Nazis.

In fact Russians admitted both a crime and a responsibility of their top leadership long time ago.
For a known reason there is noone left alive to be brought to trial.
For some else reason Poland want to have this tragic event as a center of it’s international policy after so many years.
Do they want Russians to apologize 24/7 or what?
To me it is a nasty minority mentality, kinda LGBT and racial minorities lusting some kind or affirmative action out of a guilt complex of either party.
Main point: Poland is barely a victim. It was a jackal crushed by a bear in process of looting. Why noone mentions the fact Poland was allied to Hitler too prior to Russian invasion and it was happy to invade Chekhoslovakia along with Germans to grab land and kill people?
As for Stalin he was among the first to stand to nazy backing republicans in Spain against nationalist backed by Hitler. In 1938 USSR offered France and Britain an alliance to attack Hitler and it wasn’t accepted.
He had no choice but to sign a pact with nazy to get some time.
I’m not about to find any excuse for this crime but you have to see things as is to avoid bias.
