An estimated 120 people gathered at Memorial Church on Tuesday to commemorate the plane crash in Russia last week that killed Polish President Lech Kaczynski and other national figures, including the president of the national bank and the leaders of the army and navy, who were on their way to a commemoration of the Katyn massacre of 1940. The multifaith service included remarks by Professor Norman Naimark and others. β€œIt was a reflection of what Polish dignity and patriotism has represented since Poland was established ,” said Teresa Miroslaw β€˜12, a member of the Stanford Polish community who attended.
