On 10 April 2010 on the way to commemoration ceremony of the 70 th anniversary of the Katyn massacre the President of the Republic of Poland Mr Lech Kaczynski, the First Lady Mrs Maria Kaczynska, members of the Polish delegation and crew lost their lives.
May they rest in peace!
a bird flew by a cloud is sailing
a leaf is falling mallow sprouting
and there's silence on high
and the Smolensk forest is steaming fog
Zbigniew Herbert „Buttons”
