Polish language check

A quick question. I'm a mapper from Ukraine, and I'm currently micro-mapping a Polish war cemetery near Kyiv. Polish uses extended latin and different capitalization rules, so I'm not sure if I got the inscription right. I've run a quick grammar check on it, but asking a native speaker is always better. Could you please take a look?

Pamięci obywateli Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej ofiar zbrodni Katyńskiej
aresztowanych po 17 września 1939 roku przez Sowieckie NKWD
i zamordowanych na mocy decyzji najwyższych władz ZSRR z dnia 5 marca 1940 roku

From here:

PS. I mostly understand Polish but can't speak it.
PPS. Out of curiosity - I recognize a Polish coat-of-arms eagle on the right pillar. What's the sign on the left?

Re: Polish language check

Katyńskiej and Sowieckie should be lower case (toponymic adjectives) - with exception of Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej because it's a country name and it should be capitalized, otherwise it's fine. wink

Re: Polish language check

Thanks. If you're curious, it should be somewhere around here (stele near the entrance) as soon as Mapnik decides to render it.

Looks like it, yep. That's what I like about mapping, there's always something new to learn.

Yeah, still can't get my hands straight to fix them.
Edit: you've pushed me to fix something I was too lazy to for the last year. Gratz.
