Although I am not a Sybirak, I would say just the opposite - I am Mazur - but I have keen interest in
problems related to the fate of Polish emigrants.
As a half time writer at present I opened a large Internet site where as a hobby I locate many
Polonica, a.o. a few dozens of Polish classics in extenso.
Besides of classics there are several positions of direct interest to all Sybiraks.
There is the well known book of Mrs. Krystyna Skwarko "The Invited";
Fragments of "Tulacze dzieci / Exiled Children";
(both positions sponsored by the Polish Honorary Consulate).
From my own collection and Mrs. W. Schwwieters' I scanned and uploaded poetry and songs related
to Sybir and Anders such as:
Na wedrownym szlaku, Teheran 1943 Wydawnictwo "Polaka w Iranie";
Antologia poezji polskiej; 1939 - 1945, Ksiegarnia Polska w Paryzu ;
Marian Hemar: Dwie ziemie swiete (unique, handwritten copy!);
Jadwiga Czechowiczówna: Pozwól mi wrócic - Wiersze - Rosja 1940 - Palestyna 1943;
Poezja karpacka: Zbiór wierszy zolnierzy; Brygady Strzelców Karpackich; Wyd. "W Drodze" ;
Feliks Konarski /REF-REN/: Piosenki z plecaka Helenki; (z nutami);
Red Runs the Vistula by Ron Jeffery (not Sybirak, but extremely interesting autobiography-
document of Warsaw during occupation as seen by a British soldier - member of AK);
Autobiography of Maria van der Linden "An unforgettable journey";
and some more.

It is my understanding that 'Kresy-Siberia' does not maintain any Internet Library.
As you know It is very easy to obtain free Internet space where plenty of books, memoirs (not
necessarily published or printed), photos, etc., could be located.
I am convinced that such a collection would be of great interest to all Poles, in the country as well as
I am willing to help anybody who would like to open for the public her/his documents and is not
familiar with scanning and text processing for uploading into the Internet.
