Editorial Reviews

THE OFFICER’S WIFE is a true story of murder, deportation and shocking cover-up.

In an old safe, a man discovers his grandmother’s memoirs, old photos of an army officer and a mysterious postcard that link to a concealed crime; the Katyn Forest massacre. Weaving interviews with bold animation, The Officer's Wife explores the collision of truth, justice and memory in a family tragedy.

The cover-up of the Katyn massacre is still rarely acknowledged. Two million families (mostly spouses, children and relatives of Polish military officers murdered at Katyn) were taken from their homes in Poland and deported to Siberia by the Soviets in 1940 and the U.S. and Great Britain took an active role in covering it up.

Over half were dead within one year. Only 200,000 managed to survive and leave the Soviet Union. Those that escaped were told by the U.S. and Britain to keep their mouths shut about what happened.

This is their story.

Academy-award winner Jan A.P. Kaczmarek partnered with filmmaker Piotr Uzarowicz to create a moving story about a family caught in the crossfire of the Soviets and Nazis and the lifelong repercussions that followed.

In English with Polish subtitles available as an option.
