Hello and greetings. I would like to introduce myself, and the reason
for my interest in your group. My name is Seweryn, I am now a graduate
student at the University of Connecticut. However it is not my studies
that brought me to this group, it is my grandfathers history. My
grandfather is the prezez of the main ZWIĄZEK SYBIRAKÓW located in
Warszawa, his name is Tadeusz Chwiedź.
I as a young boy grew up hearing his stories and history, and remember
going to almost all of the reginal meetings for his organization, and
then to other important events, for example the anniversary of
survivers who relocated to India. Also I have seen multiple times the
memorial in Bialystok Poland. My grandfather was responsible for the
planning of the memorial, I was there to see the building of it.
Turning 22, I have begun to gain mature interest in his history, and
am trying to learn more about it. So my children in the future could
also know who their great grandfather was. So I thank you for my
