Boleslaw Makowski

Polish 2nd Corps

Deported with his family (step-mother, 1 brother and 2 sisters) to Siberia, he and two sisters survived and were able to leave Russia under the 'amnesty'.  Boleslaw joined the Polish Second Corps and served in the Middle East and in the Italian Campaign.  His sister, Janina, spent a year at the children's hospital in the Middle East and was then sent to Santa Rosa in Mexico.  His sister, Maria, was sent to Tengeru in East Africa, then joined the Polish WAAFs in the UK.  Eventually, the siblings would reunite in Canada, and locate their father in post-war Poland.
