    No, Minsk, the capital of Belarus, was in the USSR, though close by the pre-1939 Polish border. See http://www.aforgottenodyssey.com/maps/Poland1921-39.gif You

      You might be thinking of Minsk Mazowiecki, just east of Warszawa.

      The writer must have been incorrect though, because Minsk was part of interwar Poland, wasn't it.  How could the Soviets deport Polish citizens at that time?  Interesting.
