My name is Herman Giebartowski and I am currently researching an honours thesis on topics relating to Nazi and Soviet acts of persecution, deportation and genocide perpetuated against Polish citizens during WW2.
Born in Otwock, I grew up in Melbourne and I am presently studying Polish history and eastern European histories at the University of Melbourne. Despite the fact that I have lived in Australia for most of my life, I consider myself to be a Pole first and foremost and feel very privileged to be able to study Polish history and those histories of other slavic people.
My primary interest for joining this discussion group is for the purpose of researching the historical thesis, which I hope will make a small contribution to the field of Polish history and also provide an additional discourse for, what in my view has been and to a large extent remains, an unfairly marginalised series of events.
Please feel free to ask me any further queries that you may have.
All the best,
