Katyn in the Slovenian Press (1943-1945)
Using written sources, the paper initially deals with the German discovery of a mass grave of executed Polish officers, prisoners of war, in Katyn near Smolensk, as well as the political reactions to this incident during and after the Second World War. The central part is dedicated to the response of the Slovenian underground and official press (also controlled by the occupying authorities), presenting different reports and positions on the event, and its political and social implications. The author concludes by pointing out that the two political camps in Slovenia, opting between the German and Soviet version of this incident, adopted totally opposite positions as to who was responsible for the execution.
