Yes, it is very helpful. I had always assumed that the circles marked places where my father, grandmother and great-grandfather were interred.
But now it seems that my grandmother has circled areas where the Polish army was forming. My father, who was 17 at the time of the Amnesty, went on first. I am not sure where he first joined up, but I know from his Service history it was in the USSR on 26 September 1941. My grandmother stayed on to look after my great-grandfather who subsequently died. I have a Russian death certificate but cannot translate it, so I cannot ascertain where he died. I also have a Summons from the People’s Court addressed to my grandmother who was prosecuted for coming late to work (she worked as a seamstress in town), which may indicate where they were, but again, I cannot translate it. I also have a “Kwit” signed by a Br…. Kwiatkowsky? Dated 16 IV 1942 Semipalatinsk , which I know is one place they were in. I understand my father dug alabaster, but the maps on the site do not mention alabaster.
For those of you who have already looked at the maps – I have now added Antoni’s comments – so please look again!Message 1 of 6 , Oct 31, 2006View Source
