Welcome to the KS family.I have very little information on Trani which I can share with you. My mother, her 2 younger sisters and my grandmother, who survived the Wolyn massacres, were first deported to Austria in 1943, then briefly to Germany, and were finally transported by the Americans to Italy in 1945. My mother joined the PWSK and worked in the No.3 Polish General Hospital in Palagiano, whereas her mother and 2 younger sisters were housed in a DP Camp in Trani. The youngest sister, who was 3 years old, started attending a nursery and the other sister, who was 9 years old, went to school. Everyone is now deceased except for the youngest sister who has only vague memories of that period. Sorry but that is all the information I have to offer.
