I will forward your photo to Steve for the websites, and your story to the
group - in case anybody has some other connections with Leonard or Karol.

> Attached is a picture of my father's cousin Leonard Kruk (1897-1969). He
> served in Anders Army, I think he was a corporal (?) Irena from Stanford
> University had sent me the papers and I forwarded them to his nephew in
> Poland, I'm sure he was interested. In my notes from Karol, his nephew, I
> have that he and his family were taken to Siberia, he lost a wife and
> daughter. A son and daughter returned to Poland, the son died about 30 years
> ago, no one seems to know where he was buried, his daughter is still alive,
> although I don't think Karol has contact with her. Leonard moved to England
> and that is where he died.
> The connection we have with Karol, is that Leonard's sister, Zofia (Karol's
> mother), was widowed at a young age, and she married my mother's uncle, who
> was raising my mother (aged 15 yrs.) because she was an orphan. So Karol and
> my mom grew up together (or at least lived under the same roof for about 4
> years). Wish I had more to offer,
