Marczak Family Photos

The family were forcibly deported from the Eastern Borderlands of Poland by the Soviets.  After 'amnesty' was declared, they managed to leave the USSR.  Two sons joined the Polish 1st Armoured Division, the father and a younger son joined the Polish 2nd Corps, and the mother and youngest son were sent to the Polish settlement of Kidugala in East Africa.
