2013-07-22UkrPolmapThe Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza reports about a historic reenactment of the 1943 Volhyn events. Near the village of Radymno (the territory of Poland) there were built a few sham houses which at night were attacked by actors pretending to be Ukrainian nationalists. The “nationalists” “murdered“ the dwellers and burned the houses. The reenactment was supposed to become a tourist attraction.

I would suggest to our Polish neighbours some more themes for pageantry – no less “attractive.” Why not try to reenact the gassing of people in a specially restored Auschwitz (Oswiencim), or the 2010 aircrash of TU-154 near Smolensk in which the Polish political elite died, or the Katyn shooting of 1940 when the Soviet secret police killed 22,000 Polish prisoners? To present a balanced picture the Polish actors may dig deeper into history and stage the atrocities committed by their own ancestors in the 17th century in Ukraine, in particular, the flogging to death of Bohdan Khmelnytsky’s (then Ukrainian Hetman’s) little son. Would be very attractive.
