Hi again Anna.
No. our family originated in wojewodstwo Krakowskie, pow. Wadowice, Chocznia. In early 30's moved
to newly opened basalt rock quary and new settlement of Janowa Dolina (burned by UPA in 1943, and
now called Bazaltowo), in search of an employment. This was powiat Kostopol, near Rowne. Right on
the banks of river Horyn oposit from village Zlazne.
My other brother, Stefan, was also taken by NKVD, was sentenced to 5 yrs of hard labor and after
Sikorski-Majewski pact, joined Anders Army. Rest of the family (minus one sister already married),
was exiled in 1941 to Kazakhstan. Father also joined Anders, but after typhus bout was released and
joined cyvilian camps. Ather two brothers, Mieczyslaw and Stanislaw and I, joined Junaki, sister
Halina joined orphanage and in teheran joined PSK lying about her age and served in Scotland.
Mother remained alone and with other women and children was on the way to Krasnowodsk.
I heard various stories, however she died somwher without leaving Soviet union.
