Pozdrawiam Pani Alino! Welcome Alina!
My mother was in India during the war also, but in Valivade.
In looking at the messages from last week, you will find some
information about the book POLACY W INDIACH 1942 - 1948 W SWIETLE
DOKUMENTOW I WSPOMNIEN. If you have trouble finding it, please let
me know and I will send the information to you off line.
Also, you may wish to have the e-mail address of Mr. Setfan Klosowski
a friend of ours living now in St-Bruno Que. Canada, who spent the
war years in Jamnagar-Balachachi sklos@...
recently visited Balachadi (in September 2002) for the purpose of
collecting documentation on the refugee camp for orphans located
there. Among other things, he had the opportunity to meet with the
present Jam Saheb, descednant of the Jam Saheb who was patron of the
camp at Jamnagar-Balachadi.
