Earlier this year, Poland lost most of the top tier of their government, including their president, to a tragic plane crash. The collection of officials were on their way to commemorate the 70th anniversary of another Polish tragedy, a massacre in the Katyn Forest in Russia. Biographer Allen Paul, from Raleigh, has extensively covered the Katyn Massacre over the years, and was in Poland leading up to the tragic flight this spring. He’ll join us to talk about both tragedies and the people involved, and about why he turned down the invitation to be on the doomed flight.
