However, many records have been lost or were destroyed during the occupations and two World Wars.
This is mainly the story of how my parents-in-law survived the camps or "gulags" of USSR and came eventually to live in England. It is an incredible and traumatic journey lasting 8 years between 1939 and 1947.
I must emphasise that I am not a historian; any historical errors in this story are entirely of my own making or misinterpretations of the facts.
I published this story in leather bound book form as presents for my husband and son. I have scanned the pages in order to publish it here on my blog. Some pages containing family trees have been moved to the end of the blog to facilitate an easier reading.
