Dear Aniela, after a lenghty search, I feel
confident to say that the camp you were in is likely to be Zagaynova in Troickim
rajonie, ie the one south of Barnaul. Of the two areas, this one is with big
forestry/timber works exporting a lot of wood products today and it had a
posiolek/camp for a long, long time. I suspected this place to have been the
correct one fot some time.
Zagaynova in Talmenskim rajonie, ie North of
Barnaul, is of domestic 'choziajstwo' type area even today, with pasture lands
and extensive agriculture. There does not seem to be a suggestion of a
posiolek-I might be wrong, of course.
Having said all this, I found a site, in Russian,
where a book, originally published in Polish, is reviewed and can be translated
into English via Google. The book 'Poles in Russia. Speak about themselves' by
'Polacy w Rosji mowia o sobie' - 'Dluga droga do
Polski', is very likely available in Polish. The address is at the
Niemczyk family were father, mother, 16 year old
brother Kazik, sisters Janka and Maria and younger still Tadeusz and Teresa--
large family and perhaps someone might recall them at the camp.
