Julek, these photos are true treasure and you are not alone.
The blonde kid, I thought so, but had to ask, before I made my comment of “YOU LOOK SO CUTE AND HUGGABLE’ every mother would have wanted to squish you and cuddle you.
Attached is a photo at Dad’s gravesite in Teheran Persia. Mom, Helen (my sister) and I giving our last respects to my dad whom I have never truly known or who would never be able to guide me and share our joys through life together.
Dad was murdered as were so many other Polish citizens whose health finally gave out due to the inhumane gulag conditions.
Each family has their own unbelievable story of sorrow and loss of family member and friends. To reflect for even a moment about of all of these poor innocent people murdered is almost unbearable to those who share these loses.
I still am waiting for the people of that murderess country and its regime to atone for their murders to bring some closure to the fading generation of Polish refugees, but they continue to this day to support their evil and vile government and support other similar regimes that have the same evil value systems.
May God have pity on their souls
PS On the previous photo I am the blond boy at the far right in the first row from the bottom.

Thank you for your kind words.
Attached is another photo of Polish refugee children shortly after the gulags. That is me in the first row on the right by the torn part of the photo. The torn part of this photo was where mom was seated therefore she not in this photo. Somehow that part of the photos was separated from the rest of the photo years ago.

you did not die because of your mother’s care, she was a very brave woman and must have been amazing in the way she cared for you, it would have been horrendously difficult, also you had a lot of luck, with I am sure blessings from above.
I am happy you did not die, because now you have a job in teaching us and we can annoy you with questions.
Yes, I was on the ship with mom. I was actually born in the gulags. Mom was 7 months pregnant when we were taken by force on Feb 10 1940 from our home. Most children my age died.
To be totally correct I should actually say that they were murdered because of the circumstances that they were placed in, and the lack of nourishment they received. These animals knew exactly what they were doing.
I give them too much credit calling them animals because animals do not act in this fashion against their own species.
