Subject: Hello everyone I am a new member to your group
It is an honor to join your group and be included in your discussions. My father is from Antonowka, Poland and his family was sent to Siberia. I recently was researching information about his youth that he has been talking about all his life when I came upon the movie "A Forgotten Odessy". He was very excited about seeing his Polish Refugee camp information in Mbala, Zambia. He was there until 1948. He told me about how his father and little sister died of starvation in Siberia and how they were sent by train thru Persia, Afganistan, etc. I have ordered him the movie and can't wait to get it so that we can watch it together. I asked him if this brought back bad memories for him and he responded that "this was life" and we survived. I will never forget his words. Anyways, I am trying to give all information I see from your group to him because he does not have a computer. He gets very excited to see people remembering and writing about some of the things that he experienced. Anyways, looking forward to your discussions, I have seen a few of the e-mails already. Thanks again,
