Jersey City is the seat of Hudson County, New Jersey, United States.

The Katyń Memorial:
The Katyń Memorial is dedicated to the victims of the Katyń massacre in 1940. Created by Polish-American sculptor Andrzej Pitynski, the memorial stands at Exchange Place in Jersey City, New Jersey, USA near the mouth of the Hudson River along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway.
Unveiled in June 1991 a 34 feet tall bronze statue of a soldier, gagged and bound, impaled in the back by a bayoneted rifle, stands atop a granite base containing Katyń soil. It commemorates the massacre of thousands of Polish prisoners in April and May 1940 after Soviet Union troops had invaded eastern Poland by order of Joseph Stalin. The event came after the partition of Poland and the occupation of the nation during World War II. The east side of the pediment has a bronze relief depicts the starvation of Poles sent to Siberia.
