Re: [Kresy-Siberia] Booklet
could you check and see if there are any entries for Krivoy Rog (UKR) large
Dad has logs for as far as A.Ata but has time at Krivoy Rog too...
as for the considerations of the hardships of war,it may in fact be the key
that they made it so far!
I asked his physician one day if the health he was enjoying was
possible through his system adapting to the hardships at a younger age..he found
it interesting and not out of reach...
he always portioned his meals and was never one for "seconds"...though I
could probably run my diesel with some of his occasional meal

7The story makes me believe that my
father was not in the most Eastern part of Russia but closer to the Ural,
Volga, Kazachstan and Uzbekistan. I'll check it with the books I have. In the
1970's Dutch or Flemish TV broadcasted a Soviet children's movie playing in
Kazachstan. He mentioned Kazach people look more Chinese
than Russians and he mentioned Alma Ata in Kazachstan.
My father's aunt Karolina reached the age of 83, my aunt
Honorata 87 and the oldest cousin in South Africa is already 81. Considerable
ages when thinking about the hardships in the war.
