I would be interested to hear from other members who had relatives who were deported to Rzawki Posiolek, Archangielska, or who indeed were deported there themselves. It would be of interest to me to hear of your accounts and experiences as my grandfather Franciszek Gwozdz and his family were held here.
I am researching the fate of my great grandfather Kazimierz Gwozdz who was arrested and initially taken to Nowogrodek prison in September 1939. Records indicate that he was released following the amnesty but then the trail goes cold. I would welcome any further information anyone can provide about inmates at Nowogrodek or perhaps another avenue I can explore in my research. If political prisoners were indeed released following the amnesty what what direction would those who had been released be heading towards? This may provide me with an indication as to which other archives I should perhaps contact. I have already contacted the archives at Grodno to see if they are able to release any further information. The Hoover Instituition holds no records relating to my great-grandfather.
