On Saturday, May 10 I drove from Kitchener, Ontario Canada to Jackson,
Michigan to attend a media presentation by Mark Wolski on "The Voyage - The
This trip was well worth the time.
Mark presented a well-researched, well-organized, extremely informative
presentation on the deportation from Poland after the Soviet invasion in
1939. If you have a chance to catch this presentation, I suggest you make
the effort, and take the time. Whether you are a descendant of these
exiled Poles, a World War II buff, a armchair historian, or a serious
scholar this media presentation will awaken you to a fascinating part of
history slowly coming to the public's attention.
Mark's presentation was accompanied by a reading by Klaus Hergt, the author
of "Exiled to Siberia: A Polish Child's WWII Journey. Dr. Hergt's work
personalizes Mark's presentation by exposes one individual's personal
holocaust from Poland to Mexico.
A stimulating and provocative evening.
Thank you Mark and Klaus for you deep dedication to this subject.
