Re: [Kresy-Siberia] Surname GLICKLICH
From my brief research, it appears that Genendel Glicklich is a Jewish name.
Many of the Jewish Polish deportees were refugees in Kresy from German-occupied Western Poland in 1940 who wanted to go back (!?!) and were registered by the German "commission for repatriation to the West', then the lists were handed over by the Germans to the Soviets who arranged for the forced deportation to the East instead.
In theory, all Polish citizens taken to Siberia in 1940 were given an amnesty in 1941 after the Germans attacked the USSR. But some were not informed of this, and others were never released from their labour camps. However, many did make their way out of the camps seeking the Polish Army, and about 115,000 in total were evacuated to Persia with the Polish Army in 1942. Others were returned to Poland after the war. Others never survived, and others never returned to Poland and their descendants live in the former USSR to this day.
Records are fragmentary, though we are working on creating electronic resources as much as possible. If
If you can provide ANY more information on this person or their history it can help narrow down the possibilities.
