The World’s Day of Remembrance for Victims of Katyn Massacre was established by the Sejm on 14 November 2007 and is since then celebrated on 13 April. It commemorates the anniversary of the announcement of the discovery of mass graves of Polish officers in Katyn near Smolensk in Russia, who were killed by the NKVD in 1940.
