List: CPRDU “Lost Victims of Katyn?” (e-book)
List of names and details of 908 Polish citizens who perished in the northeastern Poland between 17 September 1939 and June 1940.
This list is based on research undertaken by Maciej Wyrwa PhD, from the Centre for Polish-Russian Dialogue and Understanding (CPRDU). It was published as an e-book by the CPRDU, under the title “Nieodnalezione ofiary Katynia? Lista osób zaginionych na obszarze północno-wschodnich województw II RP od 17 września 1939 do czerwca 1940″ [“Lost Victims of Katyn?” List of persons who perished on the north-eastern territories of Poland’s 2nd Republic from 17 Sept 1939 to June 1940″]. www.cprdip.pl/publikacje,ksiazki,111,nieodnalezione_ofiary_katynia_-_maciej_wyrwa.html“.

The publication is an attempt to reconstruct the so-called the Belarusian Katyn list, i.e. document or documents specifying the identity of prisoners from the north-eastern provinces of the Second Republic of Poland imprisoned in the area of the so-called Western Belarus and executed under the genocidal order of the Political Bureau of the All Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks) of March 5, 1940. Thus, it is a tribute to those victims of the Katyn Massacre that have not yet been commemorated.
The 908 biograms presented in the book, in addition to the basic personal data of a missing person, i.e. the name, first name, date and place of birth, parents’ names, also contain information about the place of residence, work, profession, military or service rank, functions performed in social and political organizations. The biographies also contain information on repression: the date of arrest and circumstances related to the imprisonment, place or place of detention and the date of the last message about the missing.”
