False papers for Russian Army deserters


Evelyn Fabrikant
 

My father and his brother escaped from a labor train leaving the Sarny - now Ukraine- killing field in 1942
they hoped to find the Polish underground but the Russian army found them and they were in scripted
they deserted sometime in early 1945 and found forgers in Sosnovitz Poland - but never actually received the false documents
My father met my mother who was altering clothing for the forgers and working in their apartment- he convinced her to leave with him - along with her sister and the one son she saved - and they fled without legal documents from sosnovitz across Europe and the Alps to Italy
i learned that he bought “quota” to secure visas to US
i am curious to know if anyone has more information about this
