I am a new mwmber of the K-S group and am just beginning to find out what
the group is like. I was pleasantly surprised to read in your message that
your mother was from near Dzisna. I was born in Luzki, just a few kilometers
from Dzisna, deported to Kazakhstan, then moved to Teheran, and also spent
four years in Valivade. Like many others, I am trying to reconstruct those
years in my memory and gather as much information about them as possible.
Good luck on your trip to India.
