May 10 2007

Historians believe that during the Second World War killed about 6 million Polish citizens. According to the head of the Institute of National Remembrance of Poland Janusz Kurtyka, in light of recent studies, this figure may be questionable. During the last Tuesday in the Warsaw conference, timed to coincide with the anniversary of the war, Janusz Kurtyka noted that historians are still not precisely determined number of Polish casualties since World War II.

In particular, the question is, does the number 6 million Poles were killed after the capture of the Soviet Union in September 1939, the eastern territories of the Commonwealth. Janusz Kurtyka said that the National Memory Institute conducts research in order to establish the probable number of Polish citizens killed during the Second World War, as well as a list of victims. To date, published in the online list of killed and repressed by the German occupiers of victims includes more than 400 thousand, reports IA Tatar.inform.
