Subject: [Kresy-Siberia] Red Cross files
I just joined the Kresy-Siberia Group yesterday, and I thank the Moderator for approving my membership. My mother in law, Wanda Gillon (née Jablonska), was born in Lwow a couple of years prior to WWII. She and her family were deported to Siberia by the Soviets, and she and her mother eventually wound up in Tengeru. Her father and brother wound up in England, while her twin sister died in Teheran. She now lives in Canada.
Several years ago I came across a list of deportees that I think was created by the Red Cross and was a list of those going from Iran to Africa. I live in Australia but am holidaying in Canada at the moment, and cannot locate the file. I have seen reference to the Red Cross files in the archives of this group, but they do not seem to be located anymore in the locations that are suggested. I think I might have found it originally on the website for Kresy-Siberia.org.
Would anybody know where these files are located on the web, or would they have access to them? We would like to prepare an application for the Siberia Deportees Cross, and this would be one of the few pieces of evidence available to us. If I remember correctly, the file listed Florentyna (or Flora) Jablonska (her mother), Wanda Jablonska (my mother in law) and Wieslaw Jablonski (her brother).
