New USHMM collection: Polish WWII Refugees to Mexico #general


In 1943 the United States provided two troop vessels to transport 1,500
Polish refugees, mostly women and children, >from India to Mexico via Los
Angeles. These refugees had fled Poland after the German invasion and had
been held in camps in the Soviet Union and then were transported via Iran to
India. At the end of the war few returned to Poland, and most scattered
around the world, including to relatives in the United States.
