After reading all dramatic stories I would like to share with you
information on book in Polish written by Leon Los (1915-2000) on his
experience in Russian lagiers 1944 - 1956. He escaped and was captured
close to the border of Poland and sent back to the lager.
He was an uncle of my close friend from Medical School in Warsaw (Dr Ewa
Radwanska) and I knew him personally. Listed are all lagiers were he
was sent. His wife Aniela Dziewulska-Los, also served 10 years of lager
imprisonment since 1944 to 1954. Both were captured in Wilno region as
an active, high rank members of Polish Army AK (Armia Krajowa). I
sent information on her book in Polish and it is posted in the K-S
Archives. Includes names of 1200 women suffering in lager camps since
1944 to 1954 with very detailed information.
