I also have a long list of my own family members to add to the Wall of Names but need to check some details and sort out photos. Have been tied up with other commitments lately but hopefully will soon be able to devout some time to KS. You are all doing a fantastic job. Kind regardsBarbara Alison RyszkowskaLondon UK

Consequently, we have no contact details for this person, and cannot even tell you whether this person is still living or not.Note: This is the SOURCE information that is associated with the name on the Wall: The basic information concerning the soldiers of the 3rd Carpathian Rifle Division that appear on this list (First Name, Family Name, Pseudonym, Date of birth, military rank, unit, Date of death, medals) were provided by the 3rd Carpathian Rifle Division Association in London, from: â€œSpisu Å¼oÅ‚nierzy Trzeciej Dywizji StrzelcÃ³w Karpackichâ€ Volume II, published by the â€ Trzecia Dywizja StrzelcÃ³w Karpackich 1942-1987â€³, London 1991.Waleria Luro was added to the Wall from information that we have from Hoover Institute at Stanford University in San Francisco, where they have a copy of the school essay that she wrote while in the Middle East. We would be very grateful if you would help Ms. Luro to complete her profile, by adding the missing details, as well as a photo of her to the profile. Perhaps the Helena Luro that is also listed on the Wall as having written a school essay in the Middle East is related to Waleria, and perhaps you could assist in completing that profile as well. (To edit a profile on the Wall, you need to log in to the Virtual Museum â€“ click on LOG IN at the top of the page and fill in the online form â€“ then click on EDIT PERSON on the profile).We truly appreciate every assistance with completing profiles on the Wall of Names, and taking them from a simple list of names, to profiles that are mini biographies of each person, and their experiences. Adding a photo also helps to bring that person and their story to life!Do write to me directly (krystyna.szypowska@... ) should you have any questions.Krystyna SzypowskaWinnipeg, Canada
Does anybody by any chance know how I can get contact details for Aleksander Pankiewicz, whose name appears on the Wall of Names? I have been asked by a lady called Waleria Luro, whose name is also listed there. This lady is 90 years old and met Mr Pankiewicz in Siberia. She would very much like to get in touch with him if possible. Would be very grateful for your help. Best regards.
