Group Description

"Research, Remembrance & Recognition of Poland’s citizens’ struggles in the Eastern Borderlands and in Exile during World War II"

SUPPORT THE GROUP at "www.tinyurl.com/ks-contribute"

The "Kresy-Siberia Group" is for people with a special interest in the WW2 fate of over one million of Poland’s citizens in eastern Poland (Kresy) of all faiths and ethnicities (Polish, Jewish, Ukrainian, Belorussian, Catholic, Orthodox, etc.) persecuted, arrested or deported to labor camps in the USSR, in Nazi Germany (joint 1939 invaders with the Soviets), or by nationalist Ukrainian militias.
This tragic history was hushed up by the Allies to protect the reputation of the Soviet Union, an important ally against Germany after 1941. Over 70 years later, we bring together surviving deportees and their descendants to learn, remember and spread word of their experiences to the world and to future generations.
