Katy Carr speaks with US Film maker Mary Skinner in a series of meetings to discuss the war zone in Ukraine from an artistic and personal perspective. In our third meeting of this series, Katy and Mary discuss the anniversary of the Katyn Massacre 1940 and its impact on the Polish psyche : Q What happens to a people when war crimes against them are lied about, denied and covered up for years? Q How do crimes like these affect survivors of WWII in Poland and the children and grandchildren of those survivors? As women, artists, and the daughters of Polish survivors, Katy and Mary have a profound personal experience with traumatic events in Poland – many of which are barely known outside the country. We talk about how this knowledge has impacted our lives and our art. And how it has contributed to our understanding and empathy for the Ukrainian people. The song that Katy sings is ‘Red Red Rose’ from her album Paszport (2012). The song was written to highlight the many Russian crimes against humanity during WWII and especially the Katyn Massacre where 24,000 Polish Military Officers were murdered in the Katyn forest in defiance of the Geneva convention where Military Officers are protected by law during wartime. For years, the Soviet crime was covered up and blamed on the German Nazi regime. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ This series of talks celebrated Poland and Ukraine friendship as brothers and sisters in arms and we want to share our love for Ukraine and to let our friends and family know that we are thinking of them and sending our love at this darkest of hours. #WeStandWithUkraine For more info on the artists visit the below links : WEBSITES Katy Carr website: https://www.katycarr.com https://www.facebook.com/KatyCarrMusic Mary Skinner – https://www.irenasendlerfilm.com https://www.facebook.com/IrenaSendler SHOP HERE Order Katy’s Albums Paszport – Polonia -Providence https://katycarr.com/shop/ Order Mary’s film ‘Irena Sendler – In the Name of Their Mothers’ https://vimeo.com/ondemand/318438 πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ DONATE to Ukrainian Humanitarian Aid Fund here πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ https://www.withukraine.org/πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ On the 24th of February 2022, Russia started a premeditated, unjustified, and unprovoked war against Ukraine.
