Re: [Kresy-Siberia] From Linder Stachnik in England
- View SourceIf you look at an atlas of Russian resources, you will find there are many
salt mines, including, especially in the far east/s.east. Many Poles
'worked' in the south-central asian salt mines. Some also in the n/east.
At any university library you should be able to locate any of Martin
Gilbert's very good atlases on variations of Russian/Soviet landscape,
resources, transportation routes, etc.

- View SourceDear Linder:
I saw your message on Kresy-Siberia. You father would not have been
deported to Krakow in 1940; that city was occupied by the Nazis and
virtually all Polish Army personnel interned or captured by the Red Army
would have been "moved" eastward and not turned over to the Nazis.
Hope this helps,
