Please welcome new member Marcie. Her grandmother Maria Hendel (now Domanska b. 1926) was deported from Eastern Poland in September 1939 and was taken to Siberia and then via Uzbekistan and Iran to a military school in Palestine before she came to the UK.
Her little sister Zofia Hendel (born in 1929-1930) went missing and was last seen at an orphanage in Vrevskoje. She was not an orphan but was there as they thought she would be looked after better there. Sadly they never saw her again and she was not at the port when they all went over to Pahlewi.
Marcie goes on to say "We are all doing what so many children/grandchildren of these deportees have done and continue to do. We just want to learn a bit more about what our loved ones went through".
I know Marcie that you will get much help and encouragement from our so knowledgeable members.Kind regards
