The Polish plane crash passenger list in which the Polish President died has just been released to the media and suddenly the enormity of the situation becomes a lot more grave. The passenger list reads like a who’s who of Polish politics and will surely have enormous repercussions for the country.

With so many influential figures dead, Poland faces a period of political restructuring that those in Poland are loathe to begin, given they want to respect the dead and not appear to be clawing their way to power.

There will be more updates as more of the 96 names are discovered. This is a tragic day for Poland and there will be a 2 minute silence in memory of those who lost their lives today on Sunday April 11th 12pm C.E.T. We will update the Polish plane crash passenger list when further details emerge.


  • We feel pain and despair.
    People stop and cry on the streets.
    Today, crying the whole Polish nation.
    I have no words to describe it.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. May they rest in peaceful repose and may each one be honored for the positive contributions they made to their fellow man.
    The sympathy and compassion of the world is with you. We are one.

  • To the people and nation of Poland. Our prayers are with you in this time of loss and sorrow. A Triduum of Masses will be offered for all those who perished on the eve of Divine Mercy Sunday and the anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul II
