Re: [Kresy-Siberia] Re: Need help urgently please
- View SourceCaptain Czapski was instrumental in attempting to trying
to find some 10,000 missing polish officers for General Anders
[This I read from the book:
An Army in Exile: The Story of the Second Polish Corps
Meanwhile, Anders was organizing the "escape" of our brethren
from the "most hospitable surroundings an honoured guest"
of the "soviet union" could expect to receive in the gulags
General Sikorsky had escaped to London and was working from
London for the good of the Poles.
Czapski was captured and interned akin to Anders in one of the
many "restfull wonderful NKVD dacha"
