  • My father died when I was 7. I don't remember him very well, but I do remember his nightmares. He fought with General Anders in the Polish 2nd Corp after having served in Stalin's Gulag. I don't know anything about who he was, how he got where he was, and who his family might be. I have some black and whites of him.
