BALTIMORE, MD // Mayor Made Honorary Member of NKMF. The solemn refrain of Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz - "Should I Forget Them, May God In Heaven Forget Me" - was floating gently in the air during the day-long ceremonies of the 8th Annual Katyn Remembrance here on April 27, 2008.
The National Katyn Memorial Foundation (NKMF), led by Chairman Richard P. Poremski, honored the many thousands of Polish Army officers - martyred by the Soviet Union in the Katyn Forest - with a special mass in Polish at Holy Rosary Church, extensive formal ceremonies at the National Katyn Memorial Site, followed by a reception/dinner in the Great Hall of PNA Council 21. Each separate event was very well attended by Polonia, dignitaries, guests and friends of Poland.
