Honouring their struggles through terrible times

1940-41 Soviet mass deportations to forced labour
1940-41 Soviet mass deportations to forced labour

Thank you for your generous support of the Kresy-Siberia Virtual Museum and its mission to research, remember and recognize Poland's citizens fighting for survival and freedom in eastern Poland’s “Kresy” and in forced exile during World War II.

In these challenging times, it gives many of us strength to remember the wartime repressions, deprivation and disease that our families faced, as well as the powerful hope for the future that got them through their adversities.

Virtual Museum in lockdown as rebuild goes into user testing

Despite physical lockdowns all around the world, thanks to your ongoing financial support, we've been able to continue the vital rebuilding of the Virtual Museum to improve visitor interactions, repair system issues, fix security and ensure its future health. We're now transferring all of the information and materials to the new website and starting user testing.

While all the previous content can still be viewed, the current Virtual Museum website is now in 'LOCKDOWN' for new materials. If you do want to add any material, e-mail us at and you can be one of our new website testers!

2020 Conference on hold

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel our physical GENERATIONS REMEMBER 2020 conference planned for Warsaw in September on this 80th anniversary of the 1940 mass deportations. However, being a virtual organization for many years, we're exploring possibilities to meet online using Zoom or another social media platform. Please let us know at if you'd be interested in joining or making a presentation at an online gathering.

Thank you again for your ongoing and generous donations of money, time and materials, which all contribute to strengthening our special mission of remembrance.

With gratitude and warm regards, 
The Kresy-Siberia Foundation team
