Repatriation 1945-7: Russia to Poland


I am interested to hear from people who travelled by train from Novosibirsk [or eastern Russia] to Poland or Germany immediately after WWII.  Conditions on the trains, what food was provided for families, how long the trip might have taken, routes, etc.   Perhaps 750,000 Jewish Poles were given 'free passage' 1945-1947 to return to their homes, as well as thousands of displaced Germans, and Russian soldiers who were sent to Siberian hospitals.  Surely there are accounts 'out there' to aid my research?
