Interesting episode about an International Tribunal investigation
19 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't recall ever hearing about this series, but if this particular episode is any indication, it was a good one. In post World War II Central Europe, an International Tribunal is investigating long standing rumors of a massacre of military officers in 1940. The country is a weak one with a powerful neighbor that wants to make this country a satellite. The Associated News reporter, Robert Cannon is reporting on the Tribunal deliberations and is contacted by a nurse working in a mental hospital. It seems that one of the patients may have been a witness to the massacre but the patient is completely uncommunicative except for a drawing he has made. Particularly interesting was seeing Swedish actress Eva Dahlbeck as the mental hospital nurse. Obviously , this episode is referring to the Katyn Forest Massacre of 1940 by the Soviets in Poland even though in the show neither Poland nor the Soviet Union is mentioned by name. In this show it was 600 prisoner of war officers that were killed but in Katyn it was many times that.
