Polish 2nd Corps Women's Auxiliary
and Polish 2nd Corps

Helena was deported to Siberia with her parents and 6 siblings.  Her father and two sisters died there.  When 'amnesty' was declared, Helena joined the Polish 2nd Corps Women's Auxiliary and was assigned to the 317 Transport Company in the rank of Corporal. 


Her husband, Adam,  had fought in the September Campaign and was arrested by the Russians when he tried to make it to Rumania.  He was in a prison in Moscow until the 'amnesty' set him free.  Adam also served in the 2nd Corps as a Corporal.
