Monday, April 12, 2010

Poland is reeling after Saturday's plane crash that killed 96 people, including the Polish president, Lech Kaczynski, and many of the country's top military, parliamentary, artistic and symbolic leaders. The group was traveling to Katyn for a 70 year remembrance of the worst massacre in WWII history.  

Andrew Nagorski, vice president and director of public policy at the EastWest Institute brings us more on how the country might recover from the tragedy. Andrew spent most of his career covering Poland as the Moscow/Poland Bureau Chief for Newsweek. He gives us a glimpse of the scope the tragedy; but, he also paints a picture of a tenacious people whose young Democracy is in full recuperative mode.
