On the 20th Anniversary of the creation of Kresy-Siberia - we are thrilled to unveil the newly re-built virtual museum at https://Kresy-Siberia.org in time for the commemorations on the 17 September 2021.
As you know we have been working extremely hard for well over a year now on a total rebuild of our virtual museum to bring the computer programming up-to-date which will ensure the preservation of the platform into the future. This has meant creating an entirely new word press platform and then migrating every single item (every photo, every biography, every testimony, every document, every gallery etc) from the old platform over to the new one.

A huge thank you to our wonderful Shelley Upton for her tireless work and dedication in building the new site. We may still have a few items to iron out, including translations, but Shelley is still hard at work 🙂

Thanks also to Stefan Wisniowski and Irena Lowe.

Breaking news: Cash benefit for Sybiraks confirmed

On August 15, 2020. The President of the Republic of Poland signed the Act of August 14, 2020 on the cash benefit for persons deported or deported by the authorities of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in the years 1936–1956. (print number: 452).

Below is information on the most important provisions of the act:

I. A monetary benefit is granted to a person who, on the basis of the Act of 24 January 1991 on Veterans and Certain Persons Who Are Victims of War Repression and the Post-War Period (Journal of Laws of 2020, item 517), received the decision of the Head of the Office for Veterans Affairs and Repressed Persons confirming the period of stay:

a) in captivity or in internment camps and in camps subordinate to the Main Board for Prisoners of War and Interned Affairs (GUPWI) of the NKVD, and from March 1946 to the USSR MWD, and camps subordinate to the NKVD Control and Filtering Camps Department, and from March 1946 to the MWD Of the USSR, caused by the veterans' activity referred to in Art. 1 clause 2 of the Act of 24 January 1991 on Veterans and Certain Persons Who Are Victims of War Repression and the Post-War Period, or

b) in prisons and correctional labor camps and correctional labor colonies subordinate to the Main Board of Correctional Camps and Camps (GULag) of the NKVD, and from March 1946, the USSR MVD, caused by the activities referred to in Art. 1 clause 2 and art. 2 of the Act of 24 January 1991 on Veterans and Certain Persons Who Are Victims of War Repression and the Post-War Period, or

c) for political, religious and national reasons:
- in prisons and correctional labor camps and correctional labor colonies subordinate to the Main Board of Camps and Correctional Camps of the NKVD, and from March 1946, the USSR MWD, or
- on forced exile and deportation in the USSR.

II. The cash benefit is awarded for the repression that took place in 1936-1956.

III. A cash benefit is not payable to a person who has received compensation or redress under Art. 8 sec. 2a of the Act of February 23, 1991 on declaring invalid judgments issued against persons repressed for activities for the sake of the independent existence of the Polish State (Journal of Laws of 2018, item 2099 and of 2019, item 1952).

IV. The cash benefit is granted to a person with Polish citizenship on the date of submitting the application for granting the cash benefit.

V. The cash benefit is granted, by way of an administrative decision, by the Head of the Office for Veterans and Victims of Oppression, at the request of a person with veteran rights under one of the titles listed above for the period 1936-1956.

VI. The application must be accompanied by:
- a copy of the document confirming Polish citizenship
and
- a declaration of not obtaining compensation or redress pursuant to art. 8 sec. 2a of the Act of February 23, 1991 on declaring invalid judgments issued against repressed persons for activities for the sake of the independent existence of the Polish State.

VII. The cash benefit is granted once in the amount of PLN 200 for each month of the period of repression in the years 1936-1956 in the USSR, confirmed by the decision of the Head of the Office for Veterans and Repressed Persons on granting veteran rights. The amount of the cash benefit cannot be lower than PLN 2,400. The amount of the benefit is not taxable.

Application forms for the award of a cash benefit along with a declaration of failure to obtain compensation or redress pursuant to Art. 8 sec. 2a of the Act of February 23, 1991 on declaring invalid judgments issued against persons repressed for activities for the sake of the independent existence of the Polish state will be made available on the website of the Office and sent to the Main Board of the Association of Siberians immediately after signing the act by the President of the Republic of Poland and its publication in the Journal of Laws.

Once a year on August 1st, people of Warsaw pay homage to the fallen heroes that fought for freedom in 1944 during the Warsaw Uprising. (The Battle for Warsaw).

While the city's residents battled their German occupiers for 63 days, a Polish army of former prisoners released from Soviet captivity was forced by their Soviet commanders to stand by powerlessly across the river. The biggest rebellion against German N**i occupation during WWII cost over 200,000 lives and destruction of the capital.

Wpłynęło do nas pismo!

Dzień dobry

W związku z zakończeniem prezentowania wystawy o Korpusie Ochrony Pogranicza w Skansenie Rzeki Pilicy (filii MCK) w Tomaszowie Maz., chciałbym bardzo podziękować oraz złożyć wyrazy szacunku twórcom i organizatorom Wirtualnego Muzeum "Kresy - Syberia" jak i tej niezwykłej wystawy.

Była ona prezentowana w Skansenie bez mała 8 miesięcy a obejrzało ją ok. 11.500 gości, w tym tysiące dzieci i młodzieży. Wystawa przybliżyła tysiącom Polaków (w tym w dużej mierze młodego pokolenia), wciąż mało znany rozdział naszej historii, jakim były dzieje KOP, ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem bohaterskich walk tej formacji w pamiętnym Wrześniu 1939 r.

Zdjęcia i opisy przedstawione na planszach są dowodem na ogrom pracy badawczej wykonanej przez twórców wystawy, wystawiając im piękną kartę w ratowaniu, zapisywaniu i przybliżaniu mniej znanych kart naszej historii. Wystawa jest jednocześnie wspaniałym świadectwem patriotyzmu tysięcy Polaków, którzy swoje życie i zdrowie poświęcali służbie Ojczyźnie oraz stanowi piękny dowód, że pamięć o nich będzie trwała "póki my żyjemy".

Jeszcze raz bardzo serdecznie dziękuję.

Z wyrazami szacunku-

Zbigniew Cichawa

I am a stamp collector and I would like to ask if anyone has correspondence from survivors of the deportation from Kresy to the Soviet Union and later wartime evacuation to Iran, Pakistan, Palestine, India or British East Africa. I am primarily interested in covers (envelopes) franked with local stamps. These covers should be postmarked with dates ranging from 1942-1948 addressed to anywhere. If feasible, these covers could become an exhibit illustrating the history of their journey.
Sadly COVID-19 has touched my family with the unexpected passing of my beloved, and last Aunty Helena SWIERKOSZ (nee MISIURA), my Mother's last Sister.
Helena SWIERKOSZ (nee MISIURA), the daughter of Zachariasz MISIURA and Helena ZHADINETS (both dec.), was born on Friday 5 May 1933 in Rejmontowka (Kamien Koszyrski, Polesie), Poland; married on Wednesday 13 April 1955 in Wolverhampton, England to Jozef SWIERKOSZ (dec.) and deported on Saturday 10 February 1940 with her entire family from their farm at Osada Wojskowe (Military Settlement) Rejmontowka to Ujma Slave Labour Camp in the Pierwomajski Region, Arkhangelsk Oblast, Russia by Soviet NKVD; a SYBIRAK, passed away on Wednesday 18 November 2020 at Wolverhampton from COVID-19.
Will be fondly remembered by all of her family, kith and kin in the UK, Australia, Belarus, Poland, and the United States of America.
Я працював в архіві Тернополя і знайшов справи поляків з містечка Гримайлів (Grzymalow) коло Скалату, які були заарештовані НКВД в 1939/1940 і засуджені на Сибір. Можу надати ці прізвища і фото документів.

my father and his family were shipped to Siberia in the early 40's from Lemburg Poland. I'm trying to find information about the village that they were in. Dad thinks it was called Panicivo(?). They lived in a bit in the forest. Any information?
Wspomnień nigdy dość.
Dzielę się
Witam- może ktoś dysponuje zdjęciami, wspomnieniami, dokumentami na temat 14 baonu "Żbiki" walczącego pod Monte Cassino, Ankonę i Loreto albo pokaże źródło do informacji. Poszukuję danych na nazwisko Franciszek Lachcik (p.porucznik). Za informacje z góry dziękuję.
Stefan congratulations for having your hard work for the foundation recognised at the Polish Consulate Sydney this evening.
Have been sending articles about the deportation, exile, murder and suffering of our family for years and finally the media have printed. Let's see what happens now?
