Did you know?

That after Russia invaded and occupied vast areas of eastern Poland in 1939 between 500,000 and one million Poles are estimated to have been deported by Stalin to slave labour camps in the Soviet Union. These camps were chiefly located in Siberia and Kazakhstan. It is believed that only one third of those deported survived.
