He does say they let him out there "...every day..." which would include the days before he went to Katyn, and every day after that.In prison, locked up and watched all day, getting out to the garden for a walk would give the guys the chance to bad-mouth the guards, the warden, the nazis, the soviets, the cook, etc. Even if he did tell someone the soviets did it, where would that go?He did mention that he had briefed an officer about Katyn on his way out on medical release and that didnt even get anywhere.Mark T.
