      Dear group, Paul contributed to Invasion, Sovietization, Deportations, Forced Labour and Katyn. Phew! The narrative thread of the character who introduces these overviews, Henryk, is carried through all the stories. Thank you :)

      Kind regards

      > For some time now, we have felt the need for a strong English language

      > Kresy� borderlands. The overviews explore what life was like for people

      > the War - both in the Kresy under Soviet and Nazi German occupation and in
      > forced exile, as military and civilians dispersed around the world - and
      > finally their fates after the War.
      >
      > The Exhibition Rooms are introduced by 9 Polish characters, whose
