Katyn- the Soviet massacre of over 21,000 Polish prisonersin 1940 - has come to be remembered as Stalin'semblematic mass murder, an event obscured by one of the mostextensive cover-ups in history. Yet paradoxically, a majority ofits victims perished far from the forest in western Russia thatgives the tragedy its name. Their remains lie buried in killingfields throughout Russia, Ukraine and, most likely, Belarus. Todaytheir ghosts haunt the cultural landscape of Eastern Europe. This book traces the legacy of Katyn through the interconnectedmemory cultures of seven countries: Belarus, Poland, Russia,Ukraine, and the Baltic States. It explores the meaning of Katyn assite and symbol, event and idea, fact and crypt. It shows how Katynboth incites nationalist sentiments in Eastern Europe and fostersan emerging cosmopolitan memory of Soviet terror. It also examinesthe strange impact of the 2010 plane crash that claimed the livesof Poland's leaders en route to Katyn.Drawing on novels and films, debates and controversies, this bookmakes the case for a transnational study of cultural memory andnavigates a contested past in a region that will defineEurope's future.
