About a month ago I sent the group information on purchasing the newly
published 2nd edition of this book. Here it is again:
An English translation (abridged) is in the works and I understand it is to
be published sometime late this year. I will pass on any information I get
to the group. I am currently half way through the Polish version. It is a
real treasure trove of information about how the Polish refugees got to
India and how they lived. It describes the various camps that were
established for various purposes and all aspects of how they came into
being , were built, and how they operated. At the back of the Polish
version is a list of the names and birth dates of all the Polish refugees
in India. This list was taken from the official list held at the Sikorski
Institute. When I have finished the book, I will write a more exhaustive
book report for the group. I highly recommend as a very good read.

Does anybody in the group have more information on where to buy this book?
Apparently our website bibliography pointing to the Polonia Bookstore is
out of date.
However, Amazon does sell it in the UK for ?15 and will ship to the US.
Marek, by the way I understand that member Teresa Glazer (temporarily
off-line) is writing an English translation.
Meanwhile, I invite you to visit our group websites and join the discussion
list if you are further interested in sharing or learning more about the
history of your mother's experiences...
Thanks to all!
