21st century mourning

April 2010: Poland‘s president Lech Kaczynski, his wife Maria, and 94 other people, mostly prominent politicians, armed forces officers and families of victims of the 1940 Katyn massacre, were killed in a plane crash.

I was there too

At the president’s funeral shortly after, this is how we remembered them- “I was there” photographs were the order of the day rather than much actual thought for the occasion (this advert across the river was poorly timed at best, as well- ‘zimny’ means cold, Lech is also the name of a brand of beer). Shame
