Katyn Massacre Memorial, Exchange Place, Jersey City

At the Exchange Place PATH Train station in Jersey City, stands the striking statue of a soldier being bayoneted on the back. It commemorates the Katyn Massacre: on March 5th, 1940, almost 22,000 Polish Army officers were murdered in Katyn Forest by the Soviet NKVD, precursor to the KGB.

In the background of the photo are the towers of lower Manhattan (the World Trade Center was there as well), so unseen between the statue and the towers is the Hudson River.

A final farewell glance at President Bush

What the hell is he doing??!!
