There are many of us (me included) who would love to travel to the former
Kresy as well. Tell us more about your plans...
From: Gosia Garus <heygosia@...
My name is Gosia Garus. I live in Toronto, Canada, but was born in Wroclaw,
Poland. Both grandparent from my mother's side were from the Eastern
regions of Poland. (Tarnopol region, I believe). Both their families were
deported to Siberia. My grandfather lost both his parents and my
grandmother lost her father. I have always been extrememly close to my
grandparents, and as a consequence, have heard a lot about their
experiences. I would like to learn more about their experience. I am
planning on travelling to the region they are from and to where they were
deported in the near future (I am graduating from University this spring and
have a lot of time off before I start working).
I look forward to joining your discussions.
