Re: Life in a Siberian logging camp #russia

I wasn't in a Siberian logging camp "laagers" but both my parents were.
My mother's family (and herself) were transported by train from Grodek Jagiellonski (by NKVD) to Bodaybo
(near Irkutsk), Siberia. If you are a member of Gesher Galicia, I have an article in this December issue entitled
"The Raab Family From Generation to Generation" which gives some info regarding
their life in a logging camp outside of Bodaybo, and later at a "sovkhoz" (Soviet state-owned farm near Saratov).

My father was taken by the NKVD from Bialystok to a logging camp in northern Siberia (Syktyvkar,
region Rofstug in the Komi Republic, part of the Arkhangelsk Oblast).

Again, I myself was not alive at the time, so all of my info are just stories I have from my parents.
