The little-known episodes of WW2 - Katyn Museum in Warsaw with a private guide
On 23 August 1939 the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was signed in Moscow between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. This non-aggression official pact contained however a secret protocol dividing Northern and Eastern Europe into German and Soviet spheres of influence in the event of war. One week later German forces invaded Poland, which started WW2.
On 17 September 1939 the Soviet Red Army invaded eastern Poland in accordance with the secret protocol. The Soviet invasion of Poland started without a formal declaration of war. The invasion ended on 6 October 1939 with the two-way division and annexation of the entire Second Polish Republic by Germany and the Soviet Union.

I had the privilege of spending three very full days with Ewa, learning about Warsaw's experience in WWII. Ewa is not only a history specialist, but she is also an expert guide: intelligent, fluent in English, passionate about her subject and city, energetic and flexible. I've retained many guides in my far-flung travels, and Ewa is among the very, very best. I highly recommend this tour with Ewa!
