I am also very new to this. It is I that must thank you. My father
was 7 when my family was taken from their home. He has a hard time
talking about his past also. When I go to the files and read the
stories I never know what I will learn but I learn something new
everyday. My Grandfather was also in the 2nd corps Anders Army. In
1951 my family came to the USA from England.
I am sorry to hear of your loss. Michael was possibly trying to spare
you the pain he carried. Michaels other family members would be a
great place to get information. In the files trace the family to see
if they are listed, here is the link.
Now that Poland is free it is amazing how much information is
surfacing. This group is a God send and the members have helped me
tremendously. Please keep in touch as we travel into our loved ones
past together. Not always an easy task. It is having special people
like you on this journey so we are not alone. We cry sometimes or
smile around the country, that is what makes us so unique. Remember
Cynthia you are no longer alone.
