Dear «kresy members:<<<
My dad was taken to siberia from Wolyn, Wolyniu, etc. like many polish people. Just before he went, the church had the fortune of having the obras of the black madona displayed in the church. «My dad was an alter boy--Kazimierz Wszo-- The priest decided that it, jewels etc. needed to be hidden or it could be lost when the enemy came. My father, another alterboy and the priest did indeed hide the shrine, and after the war it was recovered and is now on display, I believe in «krakow. I have a pix of the shrine and the church in postcard form. I wonder if anyone else in Kresy knows about it.....<<TTFN from Ottawa, Ontario, the nation`s capital.
