Silencing Stalins Massacre
This 1938 photo provided by the family shows Franciszek Herzog. Documents released Monday, Sept. 10, 2012, and seen in advance by The Associated Press lend further weight to the belief that sabotage within the highest levels of U.S. government helped cover up Soviet guilt in the killing of some 22,000 Polish officers and other prisoners in the Katyn Forest and other locations in 1940. Herzog died in the massacres. (AP Photo/Courtesy of Herzog Family)
