      Temat: [Kresy-Siberia] Polish graves in Iran to be restored

      I have received this pertinent article off the web from Wladyslaw Czapski,
      and have attempted a translation of the salient facts. My Aunt died and was
      buried in Teheran on the day after her 18th birthday. It is possible that
      many of us have family members buried in these cemeteries.

      Wes Adamczyk has told me about an excursion being organised from London to
      Iran to attend the 50th anniversary ceremonies of the "Great Escape" next
      April. Current events make a trip to south-central Asia problematic, but I
      can pass on details to anybody interested.

      Here is the article (with gratitude to my Saturday Polish school language
      skills and apologies in advance for any flaws in the translation).


      Andrzej Przewoznik: Experts going to Iran next month.

      Polish Radio reports that Polish experts are going to Iran next month to
      agree plans with local authorities for remembrance ceremonies for the exiled
      Polish civilians and military personnel buried there. In 1942, the Poles
      left the then Soviet Union with General Anders' army and managed to reach
      Iran. Many died from exhaustion after their sojourn in the forced labour
      camps. Secretary of the "Council to Protect the Memory of Struggle and
      Suffering", Andrzej Przewoznik, said that state ceremonies commemorating the
      exiles will take place in Iran next year. He added that the Council decided
      to restore all the cemeteries in this country where Poles are buried.
      Andrzej Przewoznik said that scores of other cemeteries will be restored in
      other countries that the civilian population and the army of General Anders
      reached from the Soviet Union. Beyond Iran, restorations are underway in
      Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and India as well as in Africa. [Saturday, 8
