Katyn Memorial To Be Moved To York Street
Announcement made by Margulies Wind Law Offices
The Katyn Forest Massacre Memorial Committee Inc. has met and is pleased to announce that the Mayor of Jersey City has graciously offered to place the Katyn 1940 Monument created by the famous sculptor Andrzej Pitynski, at the foot of York Street on the Hudson River waterfront in Jersey City.
The committee appreciates that the City recognized the importance of a monument honoring the murder of 22,000 Polish officers in April 1940. The monument stands to remind us of the atrocity so that it is never repeated. The universality of the message promotes the concept of worldwide peace.
The city has proposed this move in order to create a park on the Plaza where the monument now stands. The committee is pleased to accept the Mayor’s proposal subject only to the legal requirements confirming the accommodation and safe movement.
As a result, the rally originally scheduled for Saturday, May 12th, at the Jersey City Hall is suspended. The permit for the rally has been withdrawn. On Monday morning, we expect a public announcement will be planned.
