Subject: [www.Kresy-Siberia.org] Re: The lack of Polish Officers joing the Polish Army in the USSR
Hi Frank, my general impression having not long ago read Czapski's "The Inhuman Land" was that in 1941 at Amnesty the Polish authorities very much believed they would find the POW's alive. In fact, they didn't even know anything was amiss until the exiles and POW's started to make their way across USSR and enlist with the Polish Army that they realised there was a serious deficit in the Officers. The fact that they charged Czapski with finding them, including sending him for several weeks to Moscow, conveys that they very much believed they would turn up. Despite some ludicrous claims of Stalin's about the Officers escaping to Manchuria etc, I think that the most widely held belief at the time(certainly Czapski's) was that they had been sent to far-flung camps in Northerly most Siberia and that it was taking the Soviet authorities a long time to identify and release them, and then they would have to make such a long journey south. As time progressed, their hopes dimished but I believe it wasn't until the German discovery of the mass graves at Katyn in April 1943 that they realised with certainty the fate of the 15,000 missing officers.

I known Anders was concerned and sent Czapski and others to investigate but was there any ideas at the time about what might have happened to them?
